A global bioscience medical research leader, Hudson Institute’s sole focus is on powering breakthrough scientific discoveries into improved healthcare that will transform lives. Our 442 scientists research four areas of medical need - inflammation, cancer, reproductive health and pregnancy, and infant and child health.
The Hudson Monash Paediatric Precision Medicine (HMPPM) Program hopes to significantly improve treatment for childhood cancer patients with the greatest unmet clinical need – those diagnosed with brain cancers and solid tumours.
Clinical experience based on patient need informs Hudson Institute’s research enquiry, and our close ties with medical staff and industry support the translation of our discoveries into new preventative approaches, therapies and devices for patients.
Hudson Institute is located within a major scientific research and medical innovation hub in Melbourne’s south-eastern corridor. With our precinct partners, Monash Health and Monash University, we deliver outstanding healthcare, education and leading research.
