Discovery and Translational Research

Translational Research Facility at Hudson Institute

Discovery research

Today’s treatments and tomorrow’s advances depend upon fundamental discovery science.

Discovery science is the foundation for understanding the human body, where researcher delve deep into the molecular function of cells to understand how biological systems work, what goes wrong in diseases like cancer and how disease can be prevented or treated.

Translational research

Translational research requires the combined skills of scientists and clinicians take laboratory discoveries through to clinical application, harnessing both scientific and clinical expertise to produce new drugs, devices or treatments that will improve the lives of patients.

As a partner with Victoria’s largest hospital, Monash Health and Monash University, Hudson Institute researchers work directly with clinicians, enabling scientific breakthroughs to reach patients.
