Why SVI?

  • For six decades SVI has taken on the challenge of fundamentally understanding and ultimately conquering common diseases; diseases like cancer, type 1 diabetes, bone diseases, metabolic diseases such as obesity and type 2 diabetes, neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s and heart disease.
  • SVI operates within one of the world’s most dynamic biomedical hubs. We are affiliated with St. Vincent’s Hospital (Melbourne), The University of Melbourne and are a member institution of the Mary Aikenhead Ministries. We are a partner in the Aikenhead Centre for Medical Discovery and collaborate with other national and international research institutes to maximize our impact.
  • Our diverse range of learning and collaborative research environments in areas such as cell biology, protein structural biology, biochemistry, immunology, cell signalling and regenerative medicine; as well as clinical and bioinformatics research exposes our students to a broad range of career opportunities.
  • While we undertake fundamental research, we have a strong business development and training program to help our researchers, and their discoveries, reach their full potential.
  • We have an engaging and inclusive student society.
