Welcome to HMRI
The Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI) is an internationally-recognised health and medical research institute based in the Hunter Region of New South Wales, Australia.
Since 1998, through its pioneering partnership with the University of Newcastle and Hunter New England Local Health District, HMRI has helped deliver key translational health and medical research and technology closely aligned to community health needs.
Throughout Newcastle and the Hunter, more than 1400 clinical and biomedical researchers and support staff are employed across seven HMRI Research Programs, striving to prevent, cure and treat a diverse range of serious illnesses by translating research findings made in the laboratory and through advanced imaging techniques, into real health treatments and preventative strategies for the community.
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.
HMRI – Leading research for life changing results.
