Allowing today’s children and adolescents to become tomorrow’s adult role models

Our Paediatric Research Hub allows us to promote research in the fields of paediatrics and adolescence. In doing so, it highlights the centre’s vast expertise while uniting efforts and capabilities in order to undertake global change initiatives that allow us to achieve the objectives agreed upon by the entire community of professionals who participate in paediatric and adolescence research at the Vall d'Hebron Campus.
