Hudson Institute history
Two of Australia’s most trusted names in medical research, Monash Institute of Medical Research and Prince Henry’s Institute of Medical Research, merged in 2014 to form Hudson Institute of Medical Research.
Our Institute is named after Professor Bryan Hudson AO, the Founding Director of Prince Henry’s Institute and Inaugural Chair of the Department of Medicine at Monash University. Professor Bryan Hudson AO was also a mentor to the former Directors of both Institutes.
Our tradition is steeped in clinical collaboration. For more than half a century Hudson Institute scientists’ have worked alongside clinicians in Melbourne hospitals – patient need provides the basis for our research, and our discoveries are rapidly implemented for patient benefit.
