The Children's Medical Research Institute: A Beacon of Hope:
Established as the first organisation in Australia dedicated to children's health research, the Children's Medical Research Institute is leading the charge in finding treatments and cures for genetic diseases. They are committed to reshaping the future for children afflicted with birth defects and genetic disorders, which currently affect one in every 20 children in Australia. The Institute focuses on combating over 6,000 different types of genetic diseases, and a staggering 30% of children's hospital admissions are related to genetic disorders.
Supporting Gene Therapy Research:
Jeans for Genes, an initiative started by the CMRI, plays a critical role in supporting gene therapy research. Genetic diseases arise from errors in our DNA, leading to conditions like cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, metabolic disorders, and cancer. Gene therapy offers hope by introducing functional genes into affected individuals, correcting DNA errors, and restoring normal cellular functions. By supporting Jeans for Genes, we contribute to the advancement of this groundbreaking research.
Bringing Clinical Trials to Australian Children:
The Children's Medical Research Institute also places a significant emphasis on improving access to gene therapy by expediting the introduction of overseas-developed clinical trials to Australia. This means that Australian children facing genetic diseases can receive vital treatments sooner, potentially transforming their lives and those of their families.
