The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute is committed to maximising the chances that research done in its laboratories (the bench) can be adopted and developed into practical health outcomes that improve patient care and treatment (the bedside).

Medical research has become increasingly focused on linking research with clinical practice to accelerate the rate at which fundamental discoveries are applied to human health and disease.
