Enabling Research Excellence

Monash University’s researchers and their collaborators are at the forefront of cutting-edge, innovative and translational research involving sensitive data, like personal or health data, in disciplines ranging from digital health and social work to energy markets and justice. The University, recognising the ability to collect, manage, analyse, share, govern, and collaborate over sensitive research data, as crucial infrastructure for its research community, has committed significant investments and established Helix to harness digital innovation for sensitive research data.

Helix is a combination of highly skilled people and world-class infrastructure and services to accelerate research, while enabling Monash researchers to maintain necessary ethical, legal and regulatory obligations. The platform has evolved rapidly from conceptualisation to reality, with the support of a high-profile Steering Committee, experienced staff and access to leading-edge secure and scalable infrastructure.
