Our vision — excellence and innovation in health and medical research, supporting better health services, leading to a healthier Illawarra community — encapsulates our belief that by linking academic and clinician researchers around common health and medical issues, research findings can be rapidly translated into clinical innovation and practical improvements in health services to support better health of communities in the Illawarra region and beyond.
We are building a nationally and internationally-recognised centre of health and medical research targeting regionally-relevant health improvements through novel treatments, better clinical practice and preventative health. Our success will attract the highest-quality researchers and clinicians to join us and our partner organisations.
Excellence, Collaboration, Intellectual Openness and Inquiry, Empowerment, Respect, Integrity, Quality and Accountability, Equity, Community Partnership.
