Our COVID-19 Response

With the possibility of a COVID-19 vaccine still uncertain, the immediate priority of the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI) is to understand how we can save lives, and mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on the community now and into the future.

At MCRI, we know that many parents are struggling to support children and adolescents in isolation. Our children and young people are under huge restrictions in their capacity to socialise, learn, play and develop.

Our response seeks to play to our strengths, the breadth and depth of our work, and our deep understanding of children, young people, families and their communities.

We will use this page as the home for all our COVID-19 resources, news and support and look forward to seeing you here regularly.

Thank you for your continued support of MCRI and our work.
