10 Years of Applied Medical Research
On 23 October 2012, the Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research was officially launched and opened by the then Prime Minister Julia Gillard, introducing our world-class, state-of-the-art, brand new research building to strategically support the South Western Sydney Local Health District (SWSLHD) and community.
We celebrate this milestone of 10 years of applied medical research and the significant positive impacts our research is having on our local and global communities.

This significant milestone enacted and found a permanent home for the vision of Bob Ingham AO and Jack Ingham AO, who in 1996 committed to establishing and supporting a research institute that would deliver significant benefits to their hometown of South Western Sydney. The Institute became an independent legal entity in 2008 and appointed its first Board. Four years later it moved into the current Liverpool premises – the milestone we celebrate today.Imagination is life to innovation. It fuels determination. It invites bold decisions and risk taking. Bob and Jack imagined and they acted with generous philanthropy as founding benefactors of the Ingham Institute.
Ten years on from our research building’s opening, we pause to celebrate their spirit and acknowledge the remarkable achievements and contribution of our researchers, whose work is making positive impacts locally, nationally and globally.
