South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI)

The South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) is South Australia’s first independent, flagship health and medical research institute which was established in line with the recommendations from the 2008 Review of Health and Medical Research in South Australia, conducted by Professor John Shine and Mr Alan Young AM.

The Federal Government allocated $200 million to build the iconic SAHMRI research facility which will significantly increase Australia’s capacity for leading scientific research by bringing together teams of top researchers in a world-class precinct of medical research and clinical application, state-of-the-art laboratories, and a purpose-built, iconic, 25,000 square-metre facility adjacent to the new Royal Adelaide Hospital.

SAHMRI collaborates with the State Government, South Australia’s three major universities and CSIRO to provide resources to researchers across the state, working with one vision – to transform health.
