Who we are

The Child Health Evaluative Sciences (CHES) program consists of a multidisciplinary group of researchers within the SickKids Research Institute united with a common aim: to improve the welfare of children by enabling health care decisions to be based on the best possible evidence generated through the integration of research, clinical practice and training, and the development and application of the most effective research methods. CHES scientists accomplish this through the integration of research with clinical practice and the development and application of advanced research methods.
