HeartLabs and clinical trials at Victoria’s Health Innovation Centre
Monash University will establish Victoria’s Health Innovation Centre, including a flagship cardiovascular disease-focused research accelerator, HeartLabs, and a new focal point for clinical trials, to create high-value jobs, intellectual property, start-ups, and attract and nurture new clinical trials.
Enabled by $17.5 million in funding through the state government’s Victorian Higher Education State Investment Fund (VHESIF), the Centre will be housed in the Monash Technology Precinct and networked across the state through its clinical trials.
