COVID-19 Impact on CMRI

19/Mar/2020  

At Children’s Medical Research Institute, we are taking the impact of COVID-19 very seriously.

 It is obviously not business as usual for most of us right now, and that includes our scientists. CMRI has asked as many of its staff and students as possible to work off-site to protect its scientists who need to continue working in their labs at Westmead.
 
This has also had a significant impact on our supporters, most notably our hard-working Fundraising Committees who have had to cancel all their up-coming events, with a heavy heart.
 
While it is a stressful time for everyone, we want our CMRI community to be reassured that we are coming up with new and creative ways to support the vital work our scientists are doing.
 
We will continue to update everyone about which events have been cancelled, which ones will go ahead in a different format, and how you can continue to advocate and fundraise for us in coming months to ensure that the incredible work being done in our labs can continue now and into the future.
 
Now, more than ever, Australians realise how critically important investment in research is.
 
Thank you for your ongoing support in these challenging times. We look forward to continuing to help the 1 in 20 children who face a birth defect or genetic disease.
