WEHI – Brighter together

At WEHI, the world’s brightest minds collaborate and innovate to make discoveries so we can all live healthier for longer.

We think differently about some of the world’s most important and complex health problems, making transformative discoveries for cancer, infectious and immune diseases, developmental disorders and healthy ageing.

We are driven by collaboration, curiosity and creativity. We are committed to making a positive difference to the lives of people in Australia and around the world.

We are WEHI. We are brighter together.
