Robinson Research Institute Appeal

Giving children the best start in life.

Your gift will help us to develop treatments and interventions to provide children with the best start in life.

One in ten babies are born prematurely. When a baby arrives too early, their health and survival are at immediate risk because the brain and other organs are underdeveloped. Our goal is to understand what causes preterm birth, how to prevent it, and how to identify those women at risk.

This is just one important issue in pregnancy health that The University of Adelaide’s Robinson Research Institute has been tackling since Professor Jeffrey Robinson established the University’s leadership in obstetrics medical research over 30 years ago.

The research of the Institute focuses on the earliest stages of development, pregnancy, birth and childhood. We aim to improve the health and wellbeing of all children and families through investigating the causes and finding new interventions and treatments for conditions that prevent our kids from achieving their best.

Our research areas include fertility choices and conception to ensure all children are wanted, nurturing the baby during pregnancy and birth, as well as strengthening the brain and body in early life, and advancing child and adolescent health to treat and prevent disease.

Your gift will help us develop treatments and interventions in our ambition to provide children with the best start in life. Find out more about the Robinson Research Institute. Your support can help to build these and other areas of important, new and pioneering research conducted in Adelaide, with global relevance.
