Adelaide BioMed City
One of the largest life sciences clusters
Royal Adelaide Hospital
The new RAH provides tertiary-level care and statewide services to patients, featuring:
- 40 large operating theatres.
- 800 beds, with all overnight bedrooms being single rooms with private en-suites.
- A fleet of robots to help move supplies and equipment around the hospital.
- Ambulances sending patient data ahead of arrival and test results available on monitors in patient rooms.
South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI)
With state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment, the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) has attracted hundreds of researchers, practicing and producing world-leading medical and technological innovation, and nurturing a new generation of scientists, researchers and educators.
SAHMRI also houses a cyclotron producing radioisotopes and manages a world-class large animal research facility, available for preclinical testing.
Housing 500 researchers over 12 levels, it is set to become the site of Australia’s first proton therapy unit, delivering cancer-destroying protons to the tumour site of otherwise inoperable cancers, without affecting healthy tissues.
University of Adelaide
The University of Adelaide Health and Medical Sciences Building supports medicine, nursing and dentistry students as well as around 400 health sciences researchers.
It houses the innovative, state-of-the-art learning environment Adelaide Health Simulation – the most high-tech healthcare teaching facility in Australasia.
Opened in 2017, the University’s new building will continue to build on the 130-year partnership between the University of Adelaide and the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
University of South Australia
University of South Australia’s Health Innovation Building will house the Centre for Cancer Biology, an alliance between the university and SA Pathology, developing links between the UniSA community and up to 250 of Australia’s top researchers who are working to develop a more in-depth understanding of cancer and health issues.
The Centre has a specific focus on fundamental research that is relevant to many types of cancer, as well as the research of blood-related cancers, such as leukaemia and lymphoma.
TechInSA offers business incubation, advice on marketing and business development, and export assistance to technology companies, while also providing:
- Access to funding including grants, venture capital and other finance.
- Land for new technology facilities.
- TechInSA is co-located with more than 60 hi-tech companies, creating one of the largest clusters of its type in Australia.
Adelaide Convention Centre
The multi-billion dollar Riverbank Precinct includes an expanded Adelaide Convention Centre, redeveloped Adelaide Oval, Festival Centre, Casino, and the new world-leading Adelaide BioMed City life sciences cluster, all interconnected by walkways and a river footbridge.
Adelaide has one of the fastest airport to city transfers anywhere in the world (just 10 minutes) with regular direct international and domestic flights. Adelaide ranks as the most affordable capital in Australia as well as being undoubtedly the most walkable, meaning that delegates and organisers will enjoy exceptional ease and value during their event.
Tonsley Innovation District
Tonsley combines university-led research and development with vocational training and advanced manufacturing premises for companies, with an emphasis on biomedical devices, sustainable energy and clean technology.
A 61 hectare former automobile manufacturing site, Tonsley is being transformed into the ideal location for hi-tech development and manufacturing. Tonsley is great for startups, SMEs and global companies taking advantage of Adelaide.
Cell therapy manufacturing
The Cell Therapy Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre (CTMCRC), headquartered at the University of South Australia’s Mawson Lakes campus, develops cell therapy manufacturing techniques to be rapidly translated to commercial scales. Its purpose-built clean room facilities are vital infrastructure for developing a cell manufacturing hub for the Asia-Pacific region.
Technology Park Adelaide
Adjacent to the CTMCRC is Technology Park Adelaide, an established hub of defence and aerospace, advanced electronics and information communication technology companies, anchored by global companies Optus, Kongsberg Protech Systems, Saab Technologies Australia and ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems Australia. Technology Park is home to more than 85 companies.
