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 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 100 years. Our teams are well placed to progress their valuable research and achieve vital improvements in healthcare over the next 100 years.

The areas of research focus for our Kolling Research Strategy 2021-2025 are our three Research Priority Areas: Musculoskeletal, Neuroscience and Pain, and Cardiovascular and Renal research. As an institute of medical research closely linked to Royal North Shore Hospital, we are committed to improving patient care across the broad range of clinical care that patients would receive at our local health district. We invite you to discover our range of research strengths by visiting our Research Teams pages.
