The Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research is at the forefront of many medical break-throughs and clinical discoveries.

Our award-winning researchers are dedicated to finding better ways to improve health and eradicate diseases.

Founded by the community for the community, the Institute is based in Liverpool, in the centre of South West Sydney.

Today, the Institute is focussed on five key research themes including clinical trials which are essential in determining the safety and effectiveness of new medicines, therapies and treatments. Clinical trials give patients early access to many lifesaving treatments.

Population & Community Health

Cancer, including 200+ clinical trials

Clinical Sciences, including 100+ clinical trials

Mental Health

Injury & Rehabilitation

The Institute’s medical research programs have a translational focus. This means that results from the laboratory are transformed into direct health benefits in the form of new treatments and standards of care for local, national and international communities.

As a charitable organisation, the Institute is reliant on public donations and bequests to enable the researchers to continue their vital work. The Institute was initially created by one of Australia’s most respected philanthropists Bob Ingham AO and is further supported by Lady (Mary) Fairfax AC, OBE. 100% of funds raised for the Institute go to support medical research at the Institute.

The Ingham Institute shares a unique partnership between the South Western Sydney Local Health District (SWSLHD), UNSW Sydney and Western Sydney University.
