Who we are

Our diverse team of more than 340 staff – from researchers studying populations of children to clinicians providing individual care – are committed to improving children’s health, development and wellbeing. With a focus on prevention and early intervention, we partner with families, communities, services, funders and governments to make a measurable difference for children.

We are proud to unite care, research and learning as part of the Melbourne Children’s Campus. We are a department of The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH), a research group of the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI), and affiliate of the University of Melbourne’s Department of Paediatrics.
