Groundbreaking

Redevelopment of Children’s Medical Research Institute at Westmead, NSW is well underway. Stage one, which began in February 2013, is the first of five building stages.

We’ll keep you posted on all construction progress with videos like this one, and updates on our website www.cmri.org.au, and our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Our aim:

The five-stage expansion will allow CMRI to expand from 120 to over 600 scientists and support staff.

The first two stages will increase scientific staff and research student numbers to over 300 within five years.

Why?

In the past 10 years, CMRI has invested over $60 million of private funds into medical research through its fundraising activities, including Jeans for Genes.

This has helped us develop new treatments for cancer, liver disease and epilepsy, which are only a few years away from clinical trials in humans. To  keep these advancements moving forward and to help develop new cures for other diseases, we need to expand.

What it will look like;
