The team behind BorneHMRI

Retired Wallaby Dean Mumm, and his wife Sarah, are the founders of BorneHMRI –a research collaboration between Borne-UK and Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI) – dedicated to finding answers to the causes of preterm birth. BorneHMRI raises vital funds to prevent and find treatments for preterm birth. Proud parents of Alfie and Rupert, preterm birth is close to Dean and Sarah’s heart.

They lost their daughter, Sophie, in 2012, son, Henry, in 2014 and twins, Ella and Grace, in 2018 due to issues arising from preterm birth. They want to help stop preterm birth and spare families the anguish they have experienced.
