The Caring Edge of Research
Calvary Mater Newcastle, in partnership with Hunter New England Local Health District and the University of Newcastle, forms a part of the Hunter Medical Research Institute, a multidisciplinary medical research hub in the Hunter Region of New South Wales, Australia.
Calvary Mater Newcastle is a world class leader in oncology, toxicology, psychiatry and palliative care research, ranging in scope from basic laboratory to large scale implementation studies. Over 80 per cent of all cancer research in the Hunter is conducted at Calvary Mater Newcastle which is currently the main centre for cancer clinical trials in the Hunter region.
Research at Calvary Mater Newcastle is multidisciplinary, with researchers working hand in hand with hospital clinicians and patients, universities and affiliated organisations, as well as charities and community members, to produce leading edge research into cures and improved treatments that will benefit patients at the hospital and ultimately throughout the world. Our researchers are passionate about their work and desire to make a difference.
Calvary Mater Newcastle is blessed with tremendous community support for its research efforts. Each year a number of project and equipment grants are administered through the hospital's Research Committee from various funding schemes. These programs continue to be supported by generous donations from family and friends of our patients, specific fundraising events held by community members and ongoing bequests established in memory of local citizens whose lives were touched by our caring philosophy.
