Sydney Biomedical Accelerator
A visionary partnership between the University of Sydney, Sydney Local Health District and the NSW Government bringing together clinicians, researchers, academics and industry to solve the most complex health problems of today, tomorrow and the future.
A vision for the future – the Sydney Biomedical Accelerator is set to revolutionise the science of healthcare.
Within the Camperdown neighbourhood of the Tech Central precinct, the Sydney Biomedical Accelerator (SBA) will be a world-leading health, education and biomedical research complex.
The SBA will support ground-breaking research and innovation, fast-tracking scientific discovery into better healthcare solutions for our community. It will strengthen existing collaborations, bring together clinicians, academics, researchers in new innovative ways and will enhance access to cutting-edge technology.
The SBA is a co-funded partnership initiative between the NSW Government, Sydney Local Health District, and the University of Sydney – working closely and collaboratively with Health Infrastructure NSW and the Centenary Institute for Medical Research, as the first research collaborator.
Spanning Sydney Local Health District’s Royal Prince Alfred Hospital (RPA) campus and the Camperdown campus of the University of Sydney, the SBA is a complex of three interconnected buildings to bring together the brightest academic, scientific and clinical minds with entrepreneurs, industry and government to accelerate biomedical research development, innovation and commercialisation. The buildings are scheduled to be completed in 2026.
The Sydney Biomedical Accelerator (SBA) is a co-funded partnership project between NSW Health, Sydney Local Health District and the University of Sydney. It will be a state-of-the-art biomedical research complex spanning the University campus and the District’s Royal Prince Alfred Hospital campus and will offer a unique global concentration of biomedical research talent.
Located within the Tech Central precinct, the SBA will be positioned to dynamically collaborate with industry and start-ups as part of a world leading hospital, university and tech innovation eco-system.
The SBA will be much more than just a physical space. It will foster a collaborative culture and enable new, differentiated partnerships that will continue to evolve and remain at the forefront of research infrastructure, services and talent.
The Sydney Biomedical Accelerator’s researchers and industry collaborators will work together on solving critical health challenges, and providing options for patients who may have limited choices. Investing in the state-of-the-art facilities, so closely located between a leading hospital and university, will dramatically shorten the time between scientific discovery and health outcomes for patients and our community.

This is an historic investment for any University. The range of world-class buildings and facilities that will make up the Sydney Biomedical Accelerator will bring together the brightest scientific and clinical minds with entrepreneurs, industry and government.
