Vision & Mission

Harnessing Interdisciplinary Research to Promote the Flourishing of Every Child and Family

The Leong Centre strives to achieve measurable impact for all children, with a vision of “harnessing interdisciplinary research to promote the flourishing of every child and family”. The Leong Centre will catalyze work to reduce health inequities and address emerging issues for the health and well-being of children and their families. Through strategic investments in multi-disciplinary research and sustainable partnerships with key stakeholders and decision-makers, the Leong Centre will work to ensure that all children flourish regardless of their circumstances.

Through the recruitment of endowed Chairs who are leaders in their respective fields, three core research programs will be established:

1. Data Science for Child Health Equity

2. Child Policy Research

3. Child Health Intervention​
