Research at Notre Dame

Real world, evidence-based research

Notre Dame supports research activities in all its Schools across its Campuses in Fremantle and Broome in Western Australia, and Sydney in New South Wales.

Notre Dame enables growth of its research culture and capacity through partnership with an emphasis on collaboration and translational research.

Medical research facilities at Fiona Stanley Hospital, the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research and Murdoch University in Western Australia, and Auburn Hospital in New South Wales are shared with the University.

Notre Dame also collaborates with specialised centres like the WA Phenome Centre, the WA Shared Imaging Facility, the WA Health Translation Network and the Nursing Research Centre at St John of God Hospital in Western Australia.

The University of Notre Dame Australia is taking a leading role in a major new federal government-funded initiative aimed at improving the future health of Australians through the use of ground-breaking Digital Health Technology.

Notre Dame is part of the Sydney-based Digital Health CRC (Co-operative Research Centre), a consortium of private corporations, government bodies and Australian universities tasked with developing exciting new medical technologies and solving inefficient or wasteful practices within the Australian healthcare system.

The Federal Government will invest $55 million from its CRC fund. Overall, the Digital Health CRC will have at least $111 million in cash funding, and $118 million in-kind funding to invest over its seven-year life.
