HRI is an internationally recognised medical research institute, with global collaborations.
It is a unique time to join HRI. The next few years have the potential to be transformative, with developments such as the $150 million Cardiovascular Disease Research Capacity Building Program backed by the NSW government in 2018, and HRI’s strong fundraising capabilities, which provide a reliable and independent source of long-term funding.
Our success comes down to our people. From our scientists and researchers, to our operations and fundraising staff – they all play key roles in ensuring HRI’s place as a world-leading medical research institute.
The Heart Research Institute is a centre of excellence in cardiovascular medical research affiliated with the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and the University of Sydney, located over two locations in Eliza Street Newtown and the Charles Perkins Centre (CPC) at the University of Sydney. For over 30 years, The Heart Research Institute has been one of Australia's leading research organisations working to detect, prevent and treat heart disease. Through our research, The Heart Research Institute has made significant findings that have changed the way we live with and treat cardiovascular disease.
