South West Sydney Research (SWSR) brings together healthcare, research and health education entities in South West Sydney as a coordinated Hub. We work together to improve the health of our local community and those beyond.
Collaboration is fundamental to research quality and success. It occurs across disciplines, institutions and national and international boundaries.
Members of South West Sydney Research include hospitals, health facilities, universities, research institutes and non-government organisations. While most participating organisations are based in South Western Sydney, collaborative opportunities are also available to those outside this region.
South West Sydney Research is part of a network of eight health research hubs across the state. The Hubs, with the Office of Health and Medical Research (OHMR), aim to make NSW more competitive nationally and internationally by bringing expertise within the state together to support research infrastructure and governance.
