Research in Metro North

Cutting edge care requires a strong and supported research community to develop new treatments, and tools for early diagnosis and prevention of advanced disease.

Our mission remains to deliver exceptional health outcomes through globally recognised discovery and translation, because the evidence very clearly tells us that a research rich health service environment will ensure that Metro North patients receive high quality, timely and cost-effective care. The Metro North Research Strategy 2023-2027 will ensure we realise this mission.

Our strategy

Our achievements over the last five years reaffirm Metro North’s resolve to forge a future where research is a core function of the health service, as much a part of delivering clinical services as the employment of excellent clinicians and the provision of operating theatres, beds, medicines and clinical support systems.

Research publications

For many it is the excitement of discovery, the ability to help people even outside one’s own clinic or health service through publication, dissemination and
implementation, or the ability for research questions to reframe and address seemingly intractable clinical problems.
