Our Mission

The Woolcock Institute of Medical Research strives to improve the respiratory and sleep health of Australians through world-class research, care and education.

Our team of 200 medical researchers is dedicated to investigating the causes of disease, finding better treatments and translating our discoveries into new clinical practice.

Our approach is holistic, from basic science into the mechanics of disease through to the development of high tech apps and inhalers for the front line. 

We are determined that our work creates a better life for people living with lung conditions and sleep disorders. Our dedication to improving wellbeing is at the very heart of what we do.
