We all look forward to a life of good health and well being. However, at some stage in our lives we will be affected by illness whether it strikes ourselves, our families, friends or colleagues.
Fortunately, there are people who have dedicated their careers to improving the health and wellbeing of people around the world. We are lucky to have people just like that living and working in our community.
Established in 1998, the Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI) is a unique partnership between Hunter New England Health, the University of Newcastle and the community. It provides a strong voice for health and medical research in our region.
HMRI advocates and raises funds for health and medical researchers who are conducting groundbreaking research into ilnesses that affect every one of us.Research focus
HMRI researchers are improving our understanding of diseases and conditions that touch the lives of people known to each of us, including cancer, heart disease, asthma, mental illness, premature birth and stroke.
HMRI researchers are at the cutting edge of research, having been recognised nationally and internationally for significant discoveries that are changing the way we deliver health care.How you can help
Everybody can make a contribution to the work of HMRI. From volunteer to donor, it is the combined effort of many people coming together that fuels the success of HMRI, and helps our researchers find ways to improve the health of our community.
Since 1998, HMRI has awarded research grants of more than $11 million, from community and corporate donations.Contact us
