Department of Health Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital

Research @ SCGH

SCGH has a national and international reputation for groundbreaking research. The hospital is home to highly acclaimed researchers such as Professor Peter Eastwood, whose sleep apnoea research in 2009 was named one in 10 of the Best Research Projects by the National Health and Medical Research Council. SCGH also houses Nobel Laureate Professor Barry Marshall whose revolutionary work, demonstrating that stomach ulcers are caused by bacteria and not stress, was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2005.

SCGH is located at the QEII Medical Centre, which is set to become a fully integrated centre of excellence in medical research as a result of major donations of infrastructure funds from the State and Federal Government and the University of Western Australia. A new Research precinct is currently being built adjacent to SCGH and will be home to hundreds of researchers. The centre will comprise new laboratories for PathWest, a new centre for the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research (WAIMR), new facilities for the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research, and a centre dedicated to neuroscience research. SCGH also has exceptionally strong links to all major WA universities including the University of Western Australia, Edith Cowan University and Curtin University, as well as to WAIMR.
