Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI) is an independent institute dedicated to high impact research in four areas: cancer, embryology, genetics and gene therapy, and neurobiology.

CMRI aims to translate basic research into health outcomes that improve diagnosis, prevention and treatment of childhood diseases.

Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network (SCHN) – incorporating The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick and other paediatric health services – provides care to over 25% of the sickest children in Australia. SCHN research focusses on addressing complex diseases of childhood such as neuromuscular disorders, brain and other cancers and rare genetic diseases, as well as chronic diseases including diabetes and obesity, and acute life-threatening illnesses arising from infections and allergies.

Children’s Cancer Institute is the only independent medical research institute in Australia wholly dedicated to childhood cancer. Our focus is on translational research, making sure our discoveries are progressed into actual treatments for kids with cancer as quickly as possible.
