Griffith University and Menzies Foundation collaboration

Griffith University aims to be positioned as a world class allied-health research institution following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding and the beginning of collaboration with the world-renowned Menzies Foundation.

Under the partnership, the University’s Griffith Health Institute at its Gold Coast campus will be renamed the Menzies Health Institute Queensland. The new centre will avail of resource sharing with the Menzies Foundation and there are plans for greater engagement between researchers and healthcare professionals, both in Australia and abroad.

“Earlier this year, Griffith and the Menzies Foundation held discussions around the potential to establish a national Menzies institute with a focus on allied health headquartered at the Gold Coast campus,” says vice-chancellor professor Ian O’Connor.

“This development is significant and one which I believe will provide major advantages in better-profiling the health research done at Griffith, in leveraging off the strong national Menzies brand.”

“We are delighted to be participating in the establishment of a fourth Menzies health research institute in partnership with Griffith University. Our priority is for the allied health profession to be better profiled in the research sector,” says Menzies Foundation chairman, Brian Doyle.

“We are impressed with Griffith’s commitment to allied health. They show great determination to grow national research opportunities, underpinned by strong leadership.”
