Children's Nursing Research Unit
Our Children’s Nursing Research Unit (CNRU) was launched in 2008 to improve research for children and young people.
The Unit is leading and contributing to multidisciplinary studies while celebrating the particular contribution that children’s nurses bring to research. It provides a highly supportive setting for children’s nurse researchers and non-clinicians with a special interest in children’s health research.
Working with colleagues in the UK and overseas, the CNRU is a collaborative partnership between Alder Hey, the University of Central Lancashire, Edge Hill University and Liverpool John Moores University.
