The Short Statured People of Australia Inc. extends its sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Dame Elisabeth Murdoch AC DBE.
Our members are deeply saddened at the loss of an irreplaceable, gracious woman who has become an exemplary in selflessness. Dame Elisabeth’s unwavering generosity and passion for research with the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in helping to improve the health of children living within Australia and around the world will be felt for generations to come.
“Together with founding director Professor David Danks (past SSPA Patron), Dame Elisabeth is at the heart of Murdoch Childrens. She had the foresight to recognise the importance of investing in and developing genetic research, even when this field was in its infancy,” said Murdoch Childrens Chairman Mr Leigh Clifford AO.
The SSPA also extends their sincere condolences to the staff of the Royal Children’s Hospital and the Murdoch Children’s Institute who have always been there for our members. Over the years our members across Australia have benefited from the research that has come out of the MCRI into skeletal dysplasias and genetic break throughs, thank you Dame Elisabeth
