Welcome to the Murdoch Children's Research Institute Virtual Annual Showcase for 2020
This year’s showcase, “Together, Creating Possible” is a celebration of the impact our researchers have made in a year of unparalleled challenge.
In this event we hear from five MCRI researchers, working on a global scale to address the world’s most serious and endemic diseases, right down to treating rare illnesses caused by a single gene. No matter the scope, they are making incalculable differences in children’s lives.
The presentations are followed by a panel discussion which explores MCRI's exciting research in greater detail and highlghts our ambitious plans for the future of child and adolescent health.
