Healthy futures

Health innovation building

UniSA’s long history in health education and research includes 50 years of pharmacy teaching, more than 40 years in occupational therapy and physiotherapy and the largest school of nursing and midwifery in the State. Today the University continues to innovate and grow its contribution to building a healthy community.

Home to the state’s premier health and biomedical research institute, Sansom Institute for Health Research at City East, UniSA is now building a health presence in the west of the city in the South Australian Government’s Health and Biomedical Precinct, aligning its research to future connections with the new Royal Adelaide Hospital and the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI).

UniSA is committed to being an integral part of this precinct, bringing its health, technology and science expertise to the project with the development of  the UniSA Cancer Research Institute.

The precinct will be the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere integrating top health, research and education infrastructure within a thriving 21st century hub.

UniSA Cancer Research Institute:

The UniSA Cancer Research Institute will be home to the Centre for Cancer Biology, the MOD. Museum of Discovery, and an ICT Innovation and Collaboration Centre.

As the gateway to the Health and Biomedical Precinct, this new building will bring together students, educators, researchers and the public in a community of ideas and innovation that will transform health research and services and industry and public perceptions of science and technology.
