New Sydney location
The George Institute for Global Health is moving its Sydney CBD offices, as part of a phased approach that will culminate in two close locations within Sydney’s academic, research and clinical hub around the University of Sydney, with which it is affiliated.
From its inception 16 years ago, The George has grown rapidly from five employees to over 350 in Sydney and over 500 globally, with centres in China, India and the UK. The strength of The George’s world class research was most recently shown with a 31% success rate in NHMRC grants.
“The George has always been on the move, and this is another example. We’re growing, and this temporary move within the CBD puts us on track to being part of the academically vibrant area in Newtown, deepening our strong ties with the University of Sydney and the Sydney Local Health District,” said Professor Vlado Perkovic, Executive Director of The George Institute, Australia.
The George Institute has been ranked among the top 10 research institutions in the world for scientific impact by the SCImago Institution Rankings World Report in 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014.
