St Vincent’s Institute of Medical Research

For more than 60 years, scientists at SVI have been inspired by discovery and driven by purpose.

Our team of around 250 staff and students work collaboratively to tackle critical health challenges, including cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease, infectious disease and dementia.

We celebrate fundamental biological discovery and practical application alike because both are required to improve disease treatment, diagnosis and prevention. There are no breakthroughs, no new wonder drugs, no big leaps forward without new understanding.

SVI is located on the campus of St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne, is affiliated with the University of Melbourne, and operates proudly in one of the world’s most dynamic biomedical hubs.

Our mission is world-class science: inspired by discovery, driven by purpose.

Our vision is to make medical discoveries that transform lives
