Maddie’s Vision has established the first Centre of Research Excellence in Bone Marrow Biology in Australia, dedicated to promoting the collaboration of expert researchers around a common purpose, and providing the technical and peer support necessary for catalysing innovation across specialisations, ideas and projects in Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes.
The Maddie’s Vision Centre of Research Excellence in Bone Marrow Biology is a virtual centre that provides a centralised contact point for existing researchers, future researchers, commercial entities and community groups.
The Centre of Research Excellence’s goals are to provide a critical synchronisation of current and future research opportunities, and to amplify and accelerate research outcomes.
The centre’s Executive is comprised of the principal researchers of all the projects Maddie’s Vision is both currently funding, or has previously funded. All projects sit within the centre’s research portfolio and include Grants-in-Aid, Fellowships, a clinical registry, Biobank and clinical trials.
The hive of activity occurring within the Centre of Research Excellence is generating significant momentum, forging collaborations and developing research strategy and infrastructure.
Formalised Centre of Research Excellence Executive meetings provide the opportunity to discuss future strategic direction, including projects, talent identification and both national and international clinical trials to bring under the umbrella of the centre. Importantly, assembling Australia’s incredible wealth of bone marrow failure scientific and clinical knowledge around a single table promotes ideas and possibilities.
