UNSW Health Translation Hub


Project Summary

The UNSW Health Translation Hub will bring together educational and medical researchers, clinicians, educators, students, industry partners and public health staff to drive excellence in innovation. Students will work side-by-side with researchers on real-life cases, and practitioners will be better positioned to answer big research questions and solve significant health problems. This shared interaction will allow researchers to undertake studies that are immediately relevant in the real world, with the results of these studies benefitting patients without delay.

The NSW Government is partnering with UNSW Sydney to strengthen the Randwick Health & Innovation Precinct through the integration of additional health education, training, and research with acute healthcare services - directly benefiting patients, carers, and the wider NSW community.

Building on over 60 years of teaching hospital affiliations, this partnership will help grow the relationship between UNSW Sydney and the Randwick Hospitals Campus, its research institutes and broader health partners. The UNSW Health Translation Hub will enable a seamless physical and working integration between the hospitals and the University, positioning the wider precinct at the forefront of international health research and education.

Located on the corner of High Street and Botany Street, Randwick and providing opportunities for collaboration, the UNSW Health Translation Hub will enable the rapid translation of research, innovation, and education into improved patient care, enabling greater outcomes and impacts for Randwick Health & Innovation Precinct to positively impact on the wellbeing of the broader community

The UNSW Health Translation Hub will include:

  • Purpose-built spaces for researchers, educators, students and industry partners to work alongside clinicians
  • Education, training and research rooms
  • Clinical schools
  • Ambulatory care clinics
  • Support facilities including retail premises
  • Over 2,500 m2 of publicly accessible open space for staff, students, patients and the community
