Introduction

The Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI) is a translational health and medical research hub, delivering research and technology closely aligned to community health needs.

Through its pioneering partnership with the University of Newcastle and Hunter New England Local Health District, internationally-recognised research outcomes are being achieved in asthma and airway diseases, cancer, diabetes, mental health, nutrition, pregnancy and reproduction, stroke and more. Collaborations are being conducted with institutes on all points of the globe.

HMRI provides vital funding and facilities to fuel research, but the heart and soul of the Institute are people – the researchers, the generous donors and supporters, the committed volunteers, and the patients who participate in trials and ultimately benefit from the research results.
