  • Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI) was Australia’s first dedicated paediatric research facility and is now one of the nation’s most highly regarded independent medical research centres. Our research focuses on the areas of embryonic development and birth defects, cancer, neuroscience and gene therapy and we have a strong international reputation based on our research outcomes. CMRI’s research programs are supported by state of the art facilities and committed research and support staff. Our achievements are made possible by a loyal network of community supporters, highly engaged donors and the very successful Jeans for Genes® fundraising campaign.


    ProCanâ, the ACRF International Centre for the Proteome of Human Cancer, was established at CMRI in 2016. It is a major new program that applies innovative technology to analyse the protein content of small tissue samples. The goal of ProCanâ is to complete a comprehensive proteomic analysis of all cancer types to improve diagnosis, and to enable more precise recommendations for the effective treatment of cancer patients. ProCanâ will analyse around 70,000 adult and children’s cancers over the next 5-7 years with a view to rapid translation of research findings into clinical practice.

    An integral aspect of ProCan research is systematic receipt and tracking of research tissue samples. In addition, traditional histopathology methods are used to examine and sub-sample both frozen and formalin-fixed-paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues prior to proteomics analysis. We have established a custom histopathology facility for this purpose. An overall goal is to operate at a level that will assist us to achieve accreditation and to facilitate translation of research results in the future.
