The Child Growth Foundation is proud of the Research projects we have supported in the past and those we are currently involved with. Since 1977, when the charity was launched, it has provided over £1,000,000 in grants to researchers who are working to improve the lives of children, adutls and families affected by child growth conditions. The funding of research is a top mission objective for the CGF and it is committed to providing Research Awards each year.

In this research section you will find relevant news articles and details of Research projects previously supported and currently being undertaken.

If you are planning to undertake research and think the CGF would be interested, please take a look at our Research Funding Protocol.
