From breakthrough discoveries to advances in great care, research is essential in transforming the future of children’s health.
Genomic medicine and exploring how it can help young patients is a new research initiative pivotal to contemporary research at The Royal Children’s Hospital.
Genomic medicine is the sequencing and analysis of a person’s genes. By looking at an individual child’s genes, diagnosis and treatment can be tailored to each child.
The Royal Children’s Hospital is a founding member of the Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance, which brings leading local healthcare, research and academic organisations together to conduct further research.
Their vision is for Victoria to be a world leader in the use of genomics in healthcare.
The Good Friday Appeal is pleased to fund the hospital’s membership to the Alliance, providing an expanded world-wide networks to the hospital’s researchers and clinicians.
