The Alfred Medical Research & Education Precinct

AMREP is a hospital-centred collaborative alliance of people dedicated to furthering knowledge and translating new thinking into real and positive impacts in the lives of peopleEstablished in 2002, it is today regarded as one of the leading biomedical research precincts in Australia.

AMREP brings together six independent and diverse organisations – Alfred Health, Monash University, Baker Heart & Diabetes Institute, Burnet Institute, La Trobe University and Deakin University – all co-located at the Alfred precinct in Melbourne.

With one of Australia’s busiest and most respected hospitals at its heart, AMREP comprises more than 8,000 leading health professionals, researchers, students and support staff, who come together to solve some of the greatest health challenges of our time – and then put those findings into action.

World-class resources and a diversity of focus and skill allows us to integrate biomedical, translational, clinical and public health research with education and healthcare, all on one site. This gives AMREP its unique strength in joined up research and clinical care.

Most importantly, by working together, we amplify the effect of our work, delivering results which have genuine personal, local and global impact. This, above all, is what AMREP is all about: Real outcomes, for real people.
