MCRI specialises in discoveries that transform child health.
Murdoch Children's Research Institute (MCRI) is the largest child health research institute in Australia and one of the top three worldwide for research quality and impact*. Our team of more than 1200 talented researchers is dedicated to making discoveries to prevent and treat childhood conditions. Many of our researchers are also clinicians at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, where the Institute is based. Their research is informed by the problems facing their patients but it also means when a discovery is made, this is quickly transformed into practical treatments for children in the hospital.
