Prime Minister opens BDIThe Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI) brings together over 120 research teams from diverse areas, to tackle the greatest health issues of the age.

In partnership with innovative companies and clinicians around the area, our researchers will focus on six priority health areas: cancer, cardiovascular disease, development and stem cells, infection and immunity, metabolic disease and obesity, and neuroscience.

The Monash BDI is located at the Monash Clayton campus, where it forms a key part of the biomedical innovation precinct. The institute has links with Monash Partners, Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, the Monash Institute of Medical Engineering, the Monash Health Translational Precinct, and the Alfred Medical Research and Education Precinct, making it one of the largest and most dynamic health precincts in the country.

For Australia to be successful, we need to be focused on doing the absolute best science we can to make sure the research we do ultimately helps to drive the Australian economy.
