Working together

In broad terms, the St Vincent’s strategy is to align its research strengths with its clinical flagships. Attaining adequate scale and financial sustainability are important and necessary goals for research flagships.

Through broadening and supporting our healthcare research agenda we will strengthen the many exciting opportunities ahead to further enrich our dynamic journey, with renewed interest in the development of a dedicated Clinical Translational Research Centre on the remaining site of the St Vincent’s Research Precinct. This will increase the presence of research in Darlinghurst, providing greater scope for our researchers to collaborate and realize our goal of applying discoveries to cure patients and improving their quality of life.
