The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute is Australia's oldest medical research institute, and celebrated its centenary in 2015. For 100 years we have been making discoveries for humanity, improving the health of people in Australia and around the world.
The Institute has more than 750 researchers and students who are working to understand, prevent and treat disease, with a focus on cancers, immune disorders and infectious diseases. Diseases we research include blood, breast, bowel, lung and ovarian cancers, diabetes, arthritis, coeliac disease, lupus and malaria. About 100 national and international clinical trials currently underway originate from research at the institute.
