Establishment

The Melbourne Biomedical Precinct Office was established as the result of key recommendations from the Premier’s Jobs and Investment Panel.

The Panel is made up of the state’s brightest minds from industry and business and provides strategic advice to the Premier on driving economic growth and creating high-skill, high-wage jobs in Victoria.

In its 2016 report to Government, the Panel’s message was clear in identifying the Melbourne Biomedical Precinct as offering significant potential for job creation and growth and increased investment, both locally and internationally.

The Executive Chair of the Melbourne Biomedical Office leads a team of advisors and project managers, experienced in public sector and health strategy development, policy and planning.

The Office is funded through the Victorian Government and reports to the Secretary of the Department of Premier and Cabinet.
