Priority Areas

As well as our Research Themes and Groups, Murdoch Childrens is focusing on seven priority areas aimed at leveraging the Institute's multidisciplinary research excellence. Ultimately the goal is better health for children across Australia and the globe; through cutting-edge clinical and community trials, the integration of genomics into standard health care and using valuable data from large population studies both here and abroad to better understand the health of children today.

Each priority area uses collaborative research programs which connect research with clinical care and treatment, including our unique partnerships with The Royal Children's Hospital and University of Melbourne.

Our world-class research program with a vision to prepare Australia for the delivery of human stem cell-based products and clinical practices
