Working in close partnership with the Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) and the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute (MCRI), the Department of Paediatrics supports research in all sub-speciality areas of paediatrics (newborn, child, adolescent) medicine, surgery and allied health, across the arenas of clinical, public health and laboratory research - all with the common goal of improving the health outcomes for children today and in the future.
Our research is encompassed within several broad research themes. This multidisciplinary approach aims to increase the opportunities for researchers to collaborate on projects that span common themes.
