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.
