Representing Melbourne, Australia’s biomedical research capital

BioMedVic Staff

Victorian researchers have helped improve the lives of millions of people. Their research contributions have built international reputations and drive economic development in the state.

Biomedical Research Victoria (BioMedVic) is the state’s leading network of universities, academic hospitals, medical research institutes, CSIRO and other research organisations. Our vision is for the Victorian health and medical research sector to be a global leader in innovation, to improve health and to create wealth.

We help our members develop mutually beneficial relationships with one another, with industry and with government that ensure that Victoria has a stronger and sustainable research future.

The Value of Membership

Be Heard

We work to ensure that important issues that hinder our industry are tackled head on. We encourage our members to share their views and make sure they are heard.

Get Connected

We offer a great range of events, forums and networks that support greater collaboration across our sector

Shape the Agenda

We are actively involved in challenging the norms and barriers, and provide the means for our members to shape the future of research in Victoria

Building the Future

Whether through UROP or our other programs, our members are leaving their mark on the next generation of scientific leadership in Victoria

Our Involvement in the Victorian Research Community

Networks & Forums

BioMedVic Board Meeting

Co-designing the future

Our forums & networks are unique, interactive gatherings of Victoria’s leaders in medical, health and scientific research, engaged in thought-provoking discussions about how to make Victoria a global leader in health and medical innovation, improving health and creating wealth.

Young people want to have children, but may have unrealistic expectations of what they can achieve before #fertility window starts to close. Research by @VARTAVic , @unimelb & us highlights the need for better education on the realities of fertility

Less than half of young women know when fertility declines: study

An Australian study found that, while young people overwhelmingly want children, few understand the biological limits on natural conception.
