The Alfred Medical Research & Education Precinct
The Alfred Medical Research & Education Precinct (AMREP) is one of Australia’s leading medical research precincts, centred at The Alfred hospital campus in Melbourne. Established in 2002, this vibrant partnership integrates biomedical, translational, clinical and public health research with education and healthcare, and has established a global reputation for excellence.
A collaborative community of passionate and talented people, AMREP is a place where new thinking is tested and translated into outcomes that have a genuine impact on the lives of Australians. More than 8000 leading health professionals, researchers and support staff come together here to tackle some of the greatest health challenges of our time. It is through their insight, commitment and dedication that the latest advances in medical research are translated into the best possible clinical care and health outcomes for the community.
With the Alfred Hospital at its heart, AMREP embodies the idea of ‘bench to bedside’, bringing together world-leading organisations including Alfred Health, Monash University (Central Clinical School and School of Public Health & Preventative Medicine), Baker Heart & Diabetes Institute, Burnet Institute, La Trobe University (Alfred Health Clinical School) and Deakin University. The unique benefits of co-location allow us to link research, education and clinical practice in a continuous loop, facilitating the exchange of ideas, experience and resources and adding value to everything we do.
