Monash University is Australia’s leading university in medical engineering.

Our multidisciplinary teams of researchers, together with top clinicians in our partner hospitals, are creating innovative medical technologies for the heart, lung, brain and vision.

The Monash Institute of Medical Engineering (MIME), fosters and coordinates translational medtech research across Monash University faculties, partner hospitals and collaborating medical research institutions. Our clinician-led research programs focus on major clinical and health system needs, and integrate expertise from across engineering, IT, science, biomedical and clinical research to develop new devices, diagnostics, therapeutics, delivery systems and clinical tools.

Our two major clinical nodes are based at the Alfred Medical Research and Education Precinct and the Monash Health Translation Precinct, and our headquarters is in the New Horizons building on the Monash Clayton campus. We work in close partnership with industry and hospitals to accelerate the development of new technologies through development, trials, commercialisation and adoption.
