From early on in his career at The Alfred, Andrew Way had a vision of an academic health centre.  With the announcements today, this has reached a new milestone.

Alfred Health and Monash Health and Partners Advanced Health Research and Translation Centre, named one of 4  first ever National Health and Medical Research Council Advanced Health Research and Translation Centres.

The successful centres were announced by NHMRC and the Federal Minister for Health.

An international panel of experts judged these four centres to be on par with the world's best research and translation centres.

These centres are producing first class research, and they are succeeding in turning those research outcomes into improved patient care.  

Being recognised as an NHMRC Advanced Health Research and Translation Centre acknowledges that their work is up there with the very best in the world, Professor Anderson, NHMRC CEO, said. 

Alfred Health and Monash Health and Partners had 5 main themes.

Jamie Cooper led the Critical Care, Trauma and Preoperative Medicine stream. The other streams included: cardiovascular, diabetes, obesity and endocrinology, infection and inflammation, women’s health, children’s and reproductive health, blood diseases and cancer, registries and quality and centres (stroke, sleep, mental health).
