An enduring partnership

The University of Sydney and Sydney Local Health District are the two pre-eminent institutions in biomedical research and teaching in NSW. They share a 137-year history of teaching and research collaboration.

Right now, within a five-kilometre radius of the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, some 1500 medical researchers are working towards the next transformational breakthroughs in the treatment of some of our most intractable and devastating diseases.

This research community has the ideas and the expertise needed to change the lives of millions. The Sydney Biomedical Accelerator will deepen connection and collaboration and give the research community access to the cutting-edge research and health care facilities they need. It will also foster greater innovation and new industries in the life sciences and create an environment supportive of innovation and commercialisation.
