SAHMRI is South Australia’s first independent, flagship health and medical research institute.
It’s home to more than 600 medical researchers working together to tackle the biggest health challenges in society today.
The team at SAHMRI believe in conducting inspired research that will lead to improved health outcomes for the community.
SAHMRI aspires to:
- Deliver the right interventions, to the right people, at the right time in their lives to optimize health
- Be translational and deliver health outcomes with global impact to communities
- Provide a focus and leadership for health and medical research
This building will comprise world-class facilities for cutting edge research by
SAHMRI, and lab and office space for biomedical companies and educational
institutions. The heart of the building sits at its bunker, which will accommodate
Australia’s first proton therapy unit – known as the Australian Bragg Centre for Proton
Therapy and Research.
It will deliver the most technologically advanced, precision radiation therapy ever
seen in the Southern Hemisphere, delivering cancer destroying protons to the tumour site of otherwise inoperable cancers, without affecting healthy tissues.
The University of Adelaide Health and Medical Sciences Building supports over 1700 students across medicine, nursing, health and medical sciences and dentistry students as well as around 600 health researchers.
It houses the innovative, state of the art learning environment, Adelaide Health Simulation, the most high-tech healthcare teaching facility in Australasia.
Opened in 2017, the University’s new building continues to build on the 130-year partnership between the University of Adelaide and the Royal Adelaide Hospital. The building is also home to the Adelaide Dental Hospital.
The University of South Australia Cancer Research Institute opened in 2018, and is an integral part of Adelaide’s BioMed City on North Terrace.
The University of South Australia Cancer Research Institute researchers are dedicated to the cause of controlling cancer and its effects on quality of life. Research extends from discovering and developing new drugs, novel treatments and methods of detection and diagnosis, to improving prevention, screening, treatment and supportive care strategies.
Flinders University is a globally focused, locally engaged institution with a reputation for excellence in teaching, learning and research.
A highly research active university with a strong focus on Biomedical and Clinical Sciences, 90 per cent of Flinders research has been ranked at or above world class by Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA).
As Australia’s first medical school embedded in a hospital, our world-class teaching and research now reaches from the Flinders Medical Centre across our Bedford Park, Sturt and Tonsley campuses to the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) and multiple rural clinical locations throughout South Australia and the Northern Territory.
Our research achievements are underpinned by a robust network of partnerships with organisations and industries. Flinders is a foundation partner of SAHMRI.
