Sydney Children's Hospital Network Formalises Agreement with CMRI

Sydney Children's Hospitals Network (SCHN) is the largest paediatric healthcare entity in Australia and 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. Past collaborations between CMRI and the SCHN have helped to bridge the gap between biomedical research and clinical application.
CMRI's researchers continue to work closely with collaborators at SCHN 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.

All attendees at the signing ceremony were very happy to have achieved this milestone. CMRI looks forward to a productive future with the SCHN.
