Melbourne Children’s Trials Centre is committed to looking for new ways of preventing, diagnosing and treating childhood diseases to improve the health and well-being of children.

You can ask your child’s doctor whether clinical trials may be an appropriate option for your child. To be involved in a trial at RCH, you need to speak to the RCH physician in charge of the trial. If you are not already a patient of an RCH clinician, you will need a referral from your usual doctor. To learn more about what is involved in research for you and your child, please visit our families page on the Research at the Royal Children’s Hospital website.
