Finding better treatments for childhood diseases

King’s first dedicated children’s research facility opened in September 2016, thanks to the support of generous donors.

The Alex Mowat Paediatric Research Laboratories, known as the MowatLabs, can be found alongside the Variety Children’s Hospital at King’s. They’ll be used mainly for research into children’s liver disease and acute liver failure, and research into children’s respiratory medicine, gastro-related disorders, sickle cell disease and neuroscience will also be carried out there.
