Invest in practical, evidence-based research

Here at Notre Dame Australia, we recognise the importance of investing in evidence-based research. By building and developing our knowledge and capabilities, we can continue to improve the lives of our community and individuals throughout Australia.

Your support for our research endeavours, including those within our three research centres – the Institute for Health Research in Fremantle, Nulungu Research Institute in Broome, and the Institute for Ethics & Society in Sydney – will ensure we continue to play a vital role in addressing many of the complex issues that face our society today.
