Alfred Research Alliance heralds new era

Burnet Institute

27 September, 2018

There is a great buzz outside Burnet Institute with the AMREP research precinct announcing its biggest change in years.

AMREP (the Alfred Medical Research and Education Precinct), established in 2002, is no more. Today the Alfred Research Alliance was unveiled. It’s a new commitment, name and strategic vision for the precinct.

Alfred Research Alliance will drive increased innovation, collaboration and profile of its members - Burnet Institute, Alfred Health, Monash University, Baker Heart & Diabetes Institute, Deakin University and La Trobe University.

The new name, Alfred Research Alliance, was developed in consultation with the AMREP Council and more accurately reflects the way the members think and work on one of Australia’s premier medical research and public health sites.

Throughout this week a special “pop-up” Conversation Caravan in the forecourt between the Baker and Burnet Institute buildings helped initiate discussion and opportunities for collaboration among the Alliance’s scientists, researchers, health practitioners, students or administration professional.

A new era has begun.
