Hunter Medical Research Institute
HMRI is a partnership between the University of Newcastle, Hunter New England Local Health District and the community. It helps researchers translate scientific advances into better clinical care, competitive commercial products and improved healthcare guidelines.
Central Analytical Facilities
Our Central Analytical Facilities give researchers and students access to a range of multi-disciplinary scientific equipment and services – from flow cytometry to analytical and biological mass spectrometry, electron microscopy, X-ray services, and more.
The new BioResearch Building came online in April 2021 and will give our biomedical and biological researchers access to modern, fit-for-purpose facilities that help us keep pace with emerging technologies, methodologies and fields of research.
Central Coast Research Institute and Clinical School
Located at Gosford Hospital, the new $76 million Central Coast Research Institute and Clinical School will house state-of-the-art learning areas and laboratories that will be home to the future of healthcare.
The precinct will provide dedicated space for students, academics, researchers and entrepreneurs to work alongside industry and community partners, business advisors and investors.
The University has strict health and safety requirements and guidelines to ensure that teachers, researchers and students are protected when in our laboratories.
We also provide researchers with expert support in audits, inspections, and risk assessments.
