NHMRC Advanced Health Research and Translation Centres

Acceleration of the translation of research is a Priority Action of the NHMRC Strategic Plan (2013-15). A flagship activity for the triennium is to recognise leadership in innovative discovery research, research translational activities, the provision of health care and the training of doctors, nurses and other health professionals in an evidence-based environment, at international levels of excellence.

To encourage leadership at an internationally competitive level, NHMRC wishes to recognise centres that excel in research, the translation of evidence into excellent patient care including of the most complex cases, and with a strong research and translation focus in the education of health professionals.

  1. Leadership in outstanding research- and evidence-based clinical care, including for the most difficult clinical conditions,
  2. Excellence in innovative biomedical, clinical, public health and health services research,

  4. Research-infused education and training,
