Murdoch Children’s Research Institute
Researchers at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI) have been pioneers, innovators and change-makers for children’s health for over thirty years. Their discoveries are making a difference today to the lives of millions of children and families in Australia and around the world.
MCRI is co-located with The Royal Children’s Hospital, which means MCRI’s research is informed by the health challenges facing children today. The research is rapidly applied to practical treatments for children and the impact is far-reaching.
Informing better public health policy. Improving family access to health services. Increasing diagnosis rates for sick children. Better prediction of adverse health outcomes. Innovating safer treatments for children. Advancing paediatric medical guidelines. Informing practical health advice for parents.
MCRI uses evidence, insight and innovation to make sure that, as a community, we take action on the most urgent health issues that affect our children. Creating a world where every child can reach their full potential.
“Our purpose is to give all children the opportunity to live a healthy and fulfilled life.”
