The Centenary Institute opened in 1985 under the stewardship of founding director Professor Antony Basten, to commemorate the centenaries of the University of Sydney Medical School and the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. Formal working relationships with the University and Hospital have provided unique opportunities for students to become involved in research as well as the translation of basic discoveries into clinical practices.
