The institute is home to researchers around the state who will work together, becoming a research force in Australia and internationally.

The state of the art laboratories and equipment have been purpose-built. The facility is adjacent to the new Royal Adelaide Hospital, the University of Adelaide medical and nursing school and UniSA Centre for Cancer Biology.

The launch will be held on Monday 23, June 2014 through to Thursday 26, June 2014 at SAHMRI Facility (North Terrace, Adelaide) and Adelaide Convention Centre (North Terrace, Adelaide).

A diverse program is on offer, including tours of their state of the art new facilities on North Terrace. These tours have proved very popular, so it is exciting that there are more opportunities to see this unusual new building and what services are provided to the research community. The architecture has proved a talking point for its design, both interior and exterior.

What a huge excessive waste of millions of our tax-paying dollars.
The building looks amazing, But at what extra cost ? Surely is't possible to design a structure without spending the excess massive of millions dollars needed to complete such a complicated building. I'm not talking about just building a square block of glass, but something functional without going overboard on the design & cost.

The architecture is exceptional which seems to be generating some excitement in the field of research. Sometimes it is good to see the boundaries pushed. A place that hasn't cut corners, well looking at this building, there are no corners!
