The Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research conducts world-class medical research.
The Institute’s medical research programs have a translational focus, with results from our medical research transformed into direct health benefits. Our research is applied in the form of new medical treatments and therapies in hospitals and health programs for the community.
The Institute has over 350 researchers exploring new medical approaches across:

In addition to the six research streams, the Ingham Institute provides over 500 Clinical Trials to more than 2,500 patients.
We are forefront of the most advanced medical breakthroughs and clinical discoveries and are committed to saving and improving lives.
As a charitable organisation, the Institute is reliant on public donations and bequests to enable the researchers to continue their vital work.
100% of funds raised for the Institute goes directly to support medical research at the Institute.
The Ingham Institute operates as a unique partnership between the South Western Sydney Local Health District (SWSLHD), the University of New South Wales and Western Sydney University. This allows our world-class insights to be directly applied to health care services and system and teach and train the next generation of health care professionals.
