At WEHI, we are brighter together.

We are brighter because of our collaborations with hospitals, universities, research institutes and industry, and the support of our community, including philanthropists, donors and bequestors, alumni and consumers.

WEHI – the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research – is where the world’s brightest minds collaborate and innovate to make discoveries that will help us to live healthier for longer.

We bring together people with different skills and experience who are committed to long-term discovery. Our medical researchers have been serving the community for more than 100 years. We know that we can achieve better things by bringing together diverse teams who work together for 10, 20 or even 50 years to tackle the big issues.

WEHI is a place where people are able to shine. People who are inquisitive, who are committed, who are passionate. People who want to make a difference. And we are committed to ensuring they have the tools to flourish, personally and professionally.

WEHI offers postgraduate training as the Department of Medical Biology of The University of Melbourne, and is affiliated with the University of Melbourne and The Royal Melbourne Hospital
