The Heart Research Institute is housed in international standard, purpose designed facility in Sydney’s Inner West. In 2010, the Eliza Street Facilities were listed in the finals for the Marrickville Medal, awarded to the most outstanding project in which restoration works enhance the rich cultural and architectural heritage of the area. The facade of a 1931 National Trust listed telephone exchange has been preserved whilst the interior has been converted into a state-of-the-art research facility.
Opened in September 2009, the laboratories provide research space for more than 100 scientific staff and feature Physical Containment Level 1 and 2 labs and dedicated wash-up staff with onsite autoclave. The Heart Research Institute has a fully equipped tissue culture facility for both PC1 and PC2. In addition, staff have access to onsite (PC2) and offsite (PC1) animal facilities. The PC2 facility is GMO compliant and contains a large RNA clean area for qPCR/RT PCR.
It will give you the chance to meet the scientists, see and discuss the important work being done at The Heart Research Institute. Whilst giving us a chance to personally thank you on behalf of our entire organisation for your wonderful support which will contribute to the life saving research we are striving for - a cure for Heart Disease!
