The Department of Paediatrics hosts one of the largest perinatal research clusters in Australia, together with local partners, which include The Ritchie Centre at Hudson Institute of Medical Research, Monash Children's Hospital and several Faculties and Schools of Monash University. The spectrum of the cutting-edge research we conduct ranges from biomedical and physiological discovery research to early phase clinical trials and covers a wide variety of fields (see links below). To achieve our ambitious academic and translational goals, we utilise modern, purpose-built facilities at the Monash Health Translation Precinct and their excellently equipped core facilities.
