The Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research at Liverpool Hospital conducts world-class medical research. Founded by the community for the community, our award-winning researchers are dedicated to finding better ways to improve health and eradicate diseases.

The Institute’s research teams focus on exploring new medical approaches across its research streams: Cancer, Clinical Science (comprising Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes and Infectious and Inflammatory Diseases), Community/Population Health and Childhood Development, Injury and Rehabilitation and Mental Health. The Institute is at the forefront of the most advanced medical breakthroughs and clinical discoveries and are committed to saving and improving lives.

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

The Ingham Institute operates as a unique partnership between the South Western Sydney Local Health District (SWSLHD), UNSW Australia and Western Sydney University. It was founded by one of Australia’s most respected philanthropists Bob Ingham AO and is further supported by Mary Fairfax AC, OBE.

As a charitable organisation, the Institute is reliant on public donations and bequests to enable the researchers to continue their vital work.
