CMRI – SCHN Formalise Agreement

July 2020

Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI) is Australia’s oldest paediatric research organisation and Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network (SCHN) is the largest paediatric healthcare entity in Australia: it incorporates The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick, Bear Cottage, the Newborn and paediatric Emergency Transport Service (NETS), the Pregnancy and newborn Services Network (PSN) and the Children’s Court Clinic. Decades of past collaborations between CMRI and the SCHN have helped to bridge the gap between biomedical research and clinical application, and our organisations continue to work closely across a number of research areas.

Last month CMRI and SCHN finalised an overarching ‘Umbrella Agreement’ to facilitate the anticipated increase in combined research activities in the next few years and to simplify the documentation requirements for all new projects. This agreement marks an important milestone towards even greater collaboration.
