Bridging Medical Research and Health

At the Kolling, we have brought together a large, talented team driven by a common goal to help diagnose, prevent and treat disease, and improve the care our community receives. Our research is focused on improving community wellbeing across the age spectrum.

Our researchers have a track record of success, a unique breadth of skills and knowledge and globally recognised expertise. 

Supported by a culture of collaboration, our researchers are investigating some of the biggest health challenges of our time from heart and kidney disease to musculoskeletal conditions, chronic pain and neurodegenerative disorders.

Our researchers are in a strong position, backed by the resources and expertise of our joint venture partners, the University of Sydney and the Northern Sydney Local Health District.

Located alongside Royal North Shore Hospital, our teams incorporate scientific breakthroughs into clinical practice, directly improving patient care and the health of our community.

This research strength places the Kolling in a distinguished position, while enhancing its reputation as a centre for world leading research.

As the longest-running research organisation in NSW, the Kolling has been at the forefront of research for more than a century. Our teams are well placed to progress their valuable research and achieve vital improvements in healthcare over the next one hundred years.

Our Kolling Research Strategy 2021-2025 focuses on three priority research areas: Musculoskeletal, Neuroscience and Pain, and Cardiovascular and Renal research. Each priority research area contributes to our overarching theme of wellbeing and optimal ageing. Discover more about our research strengths by visiting our Research Teams pages.
