Paving the way for a new generation of stem cell treatments

Strategic Initiative: Stem Cell Medicine

Murdoch Children’s Stem Cell Medicine is a world-leading research program tackling the toughest issues affecting children's health.

Stem Cell Medicine is the Murdoch Children's Research Institute's research program in stem cells.  We are focused on the delivery of human stem cell treatments for patients. Our research encompasses disease modelling, drug screening, and bioengineered tissues and gene editing. 

Our mission is to be at the forefront of stem cell research and translation in Australia, paving the way for a new generation of stem cell treatments.  

Our vision is the delivery of innovative, effective and safe treatment options for diseases that impact children. Located within The Royal Children’s Hospital, we have a patient-to-lab-to treatment philosophy; we collaborate with the best and the brightest to transform our research into real outcomes so every child has the opportunity for a brighter future.
