Hudson Institute of Medical Research

Hudson Institute of Medical Research is a leading Australian medical research institute recognised internationally for discovery science and translational research into reproductive health and pregnancy, infant and child health, inflammation and cancer.

The Institute is home to 470 world-class scientists and students who push the boundaries of scientific knowledge to answer complex questions about human disease. Our researchers are leading developments in cell therapies, women’s health, microbiome research, diagnostics and cancer. Internationally our scientific and medical collaborations provide a foundation for transformative healthcare programs world-wide.

A founding member of the Monash Health Translation Precinct, alongside partners Monash Health and Monash University, the Institute is part of a major medical and scientific research hub based in Melbourne’s south-eastern corridor.

Our integrated research teams of clinicians and academic researchers engage in a culture of collaboration and innovation in a purpose-built translational research facility equipped with cutting- edge technologies and a clinical trials centre. A link-bridge directly connects the facility with Monash Health, serving as a crucial connector between scientists, clinicians and patients.

Clinical experience informs our research programs based on patient need and our close ties with medical staff and industry support the translation of our discoveries into new preventative approaches, therapies and devices for patients.
