Walter and Eliza Hall Institute (WEHI)


The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute was established in 1915 and is Australia’s oldest medical research institute.

Its scientists have made significant discoveries across three key areas – immunity, cancer and infectious diseases. These discoveries have advanced understanding of human biology and resulted in new and more effective treatments for patients worldwide.

Throughout WEHI’s history, its researchers have focused on understanding the fundamental principles of biology and using this knowledge to mitigate disease.

WEHI has a strong culture of collaboration and works closely with Precinct Partners, including The University of Melbourne, Royal Melbourne Hospital and Peter Mac.
