We engage at all levels to ensure that our research has the broadest possible impact on future health outcomes. Whether we are sharing our expertise through our work with various organisations, helping develop the careers of future research stars, or inviting people to join our research studies – connections are what brings our research to life.

IPAN is recognised as a leader in innovative, high-quality research that translates into real-world applications. We’ve consistently secured funding to support our research from competitive research funding schemes, including the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and the Australian Research Council (ARC), as well as substantial funding from public sector, industry and philanthropic sources.

We have many national and international research collaborations which both strengthens our expertise and offers exciting opportunities for our staff and PhD students.

We pride ourselves on delivering high quality research outcomes for the many non-research organisations we work with, either through providing services or via research partnerships. By working with others we can achieve so much more than we can on our own.

We are keen to hear from organisations interested in connecting with us to answer important research questions. Starting discussions early is critical. If you have an idea, please contact us at or phone +61 3 9244 6613.
