Researcher in the laboratoryWorking with our researchers, the innovation team’s mission is to enable real world applications to deliver impact.

Murdoch Children's Research Institute is an impact organisation powered by research.

With children at the heart of what we do, our mission is to improve child and adolescent health.

We do this through our precision child health strategy; creating research insights and discoveries that have the potential to inform government policy, improve health & social care, and fuel development and delivery of new products and services by strategic partners.

About the Innovation team

The Innovation team acts as an ‘engine’ to support people in developing new innovative products, services or initiatives across prevention and intervention in the healthcare setting. 

Our Innovation program encompasses five streams of activities that cover the breadth of research activity happening within the MCRI. 

Murdoch Children's Innovation program

With a strong background in healthcare and medical research, our team is developing extensive ecosystems for each of our 5 streams so that for each project we aim to accelerate there is access to resources such as strategists, technology specialists, intellectual property experts, business development advice, mentors, entrepreneurial advice, ideation workshops, test bed and much more.

Strategic Partnerships

We see Innovation as a way to help solve health and social problems facing children and their communities by enabling and creating “real-world applications”. We are keen to partner with value-aligned organisation that can help accelerate our innovations and reach children and their communities faster.

Bringing innovative solutions to society’s health unmet needs is a challenge that no single organisation is currently capable of achieving on its own. Together with our partners we strive to fast track the impact derived from our unparalleled research and innovation to ensure all children are able to live a healthy and fulfilled life.
