As a key component of the Riverbank Precinct, Adelaide is creating the largest integrated hub of health and biomedical research institutions in the Southern Hemisphere. This significant development has created fertile ground for successful international and domestic conventions in the fields of health, medicine and related sciences. It is also an initiative that adds great strength to the Adelaide Convention Bureau’s ‘Conventions Adelaide’ program which offers organisers a direct line to leading specialists and institutions operating within their field across Adelaide, Australia and the Asia Pacific. Institutions that form part of this integrated hub include; SOUTH AUSTRALIAN HEALTH AND MEDICAL RESEARCH INSTITUTE – SAHMRI SAHMRI opened in late 2013 and significantly increases Australia’s capacity for leading scientific research. Some of the core practices undertaken at SAHMRI include; • A team of 600 researchers, who work together in search of better treatments and cures for some of the world’s most challenging diseases. • Creating a state-of-the-art output of medical research and clinical application with advanced laboratories and equipment in a purpose built iconic facility, adjacent to the new Royal Adelaide Hospital. • Actively foster and nurture a new generation of the finest research minds, and undertake extensive and interactive community engagement and education. Key SAHMRI themes include Cancer, Heart Health, Nutrition & Metabolism, Mind & Brain, Infection & Immunity, Aboriginal Health, and Healthy Mothers, Babies & Children. SAHMRI 2 is scheduled to be built adjacent to SAHMRI and will house an additional 500 researchers over 10 levels. NEW ROYAL ADELAIDE HOSPITAL Adjacent to SAHMRI will be the new Royal Adelaide Hospital.
