Finding cures for children's genetic diseases


Go behind the scenes in 2019


You may be a long term supporter of Children’s Medical Research Institute, but have you ever seen where your fundraising dollar goes?

CMRI runs regular Discovery Days where you can get a full tour of our Westmead office and go inside the labs to talk to the scientists about their work. The schedule for our 2019 Discovery Day has now been released so you and your friends can sign up!

One of our recent groups to take a tour was Roseville Chase Probus. They wrote to Discovery Day Coordinator, Community Relations Manager Jennifer Philps with high praise.

“Thank you and all the CMRI folk who made us all so welcome, the lectures and the visit to the science labs, which we so enjoyed, and definitely not forgetting the tea and coffee, delicious Devonshire tea and then a wonderful lunch.  You held our interest right through your lecture and you made it all so much easier to understand.

“Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and visiting CMRI certainly opened our eyes to the awesome work being done at the Institute and all the dedicated staff members and their very hard work and fantastic knowledge.’’

Kinnaird Tours described it as the best outing they’d had.

“What an eye opener it was into the future of medical research. A fascinating day, well presented, easy to understand and the best outing we have had. The home baking was wonderful. Thank you.’’
