The Melbourne Biomedical Precinct Office
The Melbourne Biomedical Precinct Office was established by the Victorian Government to drive economic development in the Precinct and strengthen its position as a world leader in biomedical research, development and innovation.
The Melbourne Biomedical Precinct is enormously important to Victoria. It has touched the lives of millions of Victorians - whether it be through the world class clinical care its hospitals provide, the outstanding education its universities deliver or the world-renowned research of its institutions.
Precinct Leadership Group
The concept of collaboration is not new to the Precinct. In 2012, the CEOs of the major hospitals, research institutions, universities and biotechnology orgnanisations in the Precinct came together to form what is now known as the Precinct Leadership Group.
