Why SVI?

For more than six decades, SVI has taken on the challenge of fundamentally understanding and ultimately conquering critical disease challenges, including cancer, diabetes, heart disease dementia and osteoporosis.

The Institute is affiliated with the University of Melbourne and is located on the campus of St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne. As a member of the St Vincent’s Health Australia (SVHA) family, we give expression to the commitment of SVHA to excellence in research, education and the development of health and wellbeing of the community.

We collaborate with national and international research organisations to maximise our impact. We are especially proud to be a partner in the Aikenhead Centre for Medical Discovery (ACMD), Australia’s first collaborative hospital-based biomedical engineering research centre – turning scientific knowledge into practical impact.

Our diverse range of learning and collaborative research environments expose students to a broad range of potential career opportunities, across fields as diverse as cell biology, protein structural biology, immunology, biochemistry, cell signalling and regenerative medicine, as well as clinical and bioinformatics research.

Our fundamental research is matched by a strong business development and training program that supports our researchers, and their discoveries, reach their full potential.

We have an engaging and inclusive student society.

SVI’s Fitzroy location puts you in the heart of one of Melbourne’s most vibrant and diverse neighbourhoods on the edge of the CBD and next to the World Heritage listed Exhibition Building and Gardens, within walking distance of a wide assortment of pubs, restaurants, shops and housing.
