Description of charity's activities and outcomes
During the year, the principal activity of the Institute continued to be conducting research into the causes, prevention, relief and cure of disease and illness in children. Our core research activities include genetics and gene therapy, embryology, neuroscience and cancer research.

To achieve these objectives, the Institute has adopted the following strategies:
• recruitment of specialist staff across its core research activities;
• grow complementary labs, technology facilities and expansion of big data capabilities;
• diversification and strengthening of its fundraising activities;
• exploiting industry collaborations for commercialisation opportunities to bridge funding gaps and generate new, long-term revenue streams; and
• management of its investment Endowment Funds to achieve appropriate returns with acceptable risk.
