The Sydney Biomedical Accelerator (SBA) will revolutionalise the science of healthcare. Researchers, clinicians and industry collaborators will work together to dramatically shorten the time between scientific discovery and health outcomes.

The Sydney Biomedical Accelerator (SBA) is a partnership project between NSW Health, Sydney Local Health District and the University of Sydney. It will be a state-of-the-art biomedical research complex spanning the University campus and the District’s Royal Prince Alfred Hospital campus and will offer a unique global concentration of biomedical research talent.

Located within the Tech Central precinct, the SBA will be positioned to dynamically collaborate with industry and start-ups as part of a world leading hospital, university and tech innovation eco-system. 

The SBA will be much more than just a physical space. It will foster a collaborative culture and enable new, differentiated partnerships that will continue to evolve and remain at the forefront of research infrastructure, services and talent.
