The Curtin Health Innovation Research Institute (CHIRI) is the only research institute in the southern hemisphere solely dedicated to developing new treatments for diseases that more commonly occur with older age – we call these ‘adults-only’ diseases.

CHIRI’s vision is to identify new prevention and treatment strategies for adult diseases by supporting researchers who are prepared to explore the unexplored, take bigger risks in research and think outside the box in the search for major scientific insights and adult health outcomes.

Your support will further our four key research areas – vascular and metabolic disorders, immune disorders, neurological disorders and cancer – as we strive to be bold and innovative and aim to improve quality of life for countless Australians.
