1 in 20 children worldwide is born with a birth defect or genetic disease. Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI) is dedicated to advancing the treatment and prevention of childhood diseases, so every child has the opportunity for a healthy start to life.
CMRI pioneered microsurgery, immunisations against lethal childhood illnesses and care for premature babies, all of which has improved the lives of countless Australian children over the last 65 years. Today, CMRI is the site of world-leading research in areas such as cancer, neurobiology, embryology, genomics and gene therapy.
CMRI scientists ask difficult questions in order to gain important answers.
