Melbourne Children’s shares a culture of collaboration and innovation, underpinned by the knowledge that it is through science we discover new ways of keeping children well, and heal those who are not. Through direct bedside care we translate this knowledge into better health outcomes and healthier lives. And through education and training we embed our knowledge, and the importance of discovery, into the next generation of paediatric specialists. 

We are proud to present some of the projects currently underway at Melbourne Children’s.

LifeCourse – A Melbourne Children’s Research Initiative

LifeCourse aims to maximise the value of population and clinical longitudinal research by bringing together resources and data to address new research questions on communicable and non-communicable diseases, cognitive and language development, mental and behavioural disorders and resilience and wellbeing that cannot be addressed within individual studies alone.
