Improving human health through excellence in medical research
The Centenary Institute is a world-leading independent medical research organisation based in Sydney.
Since 1985, our scientists have brought renewed health and hope to Australians and people around the world by unlocking knowledge of complex diseases and developing treatments that save lives. Philanthropy plays a critical role in accelerating our research.
We are located in the heart of the Tech Central Precinct between the University of Sydney campus and the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, and within a short distance of the University of Technology Sydney. With many of our Faculty being professors and clinicians at these institutions, we are well positioned to ensure a virtuous cycle of bed-to-bench-to-bed and translate our cutting edge research into practice.
We continue to capitalise on this geographical advantage and build these relationships with a focus on multi-disciplinary collaboration to ensure that the Australian population receives the greatest possible benefit.
Our research spans from investigating molecular mechanisms of disease at the single cell level to translational disease models in complex organisms and to clinical trials.
We will continue to build on these skills by focusing on and enlarging our research efforts in the three critical areas of cancer, inflammation and cardiovascular disease.
Centenary’s strengths are in discovery and innovation. Uncovering disease mechanisms and applying this knowledge to improve diagnostics and treatments for patients and finding cures for some of the most chronic diseases affecting today’s society.
Centenary is committed to establishing further links with industry partners to enhance innovation and commercialisation.
