Posted on 09/01/2018
Curtin University and Telethon Kids Institute will work together as part of a new agreement focused on enhancing children’s health and medical research in Western Australia.
The affiliation agreement, signed last night, sets out the framework for the establishment of a cooperative and collaborative relationship between WA’s largest university and the State’s only child health research institute.
Curtin University Vice-Chancellor Professor Deborah Terry said she was delighted to announce the new agreement because it signalled a new era for children’s health research in WA.
“This agreement will promote collaborative efforts between Curtin University and Telethon Kids Institute with the aim of growing research and enhancing research training for the benefit of children, adolescents, families and the wider community,” Professor Terry said.
