Vision and mission

“By fostering discovery science we increase the likelihood of major scientific insights and significant adult health outcomes.”

The Curtin Health Innovation Research Institute’s (CHIRI’s) vision is to identify new prevention and treatment strategies for adult diseases by supporting researchers prepared to think beyond existing paradigms. 

CHIRI’s mission is to:

  • host medical researchers prepared to explore novel ideas that may give new insight into the causes, prevention or treatment of adult diseases;
  • provide stability of resources to research projects that are not tied to short-term wins and competitive grants success. We support our medical researchers to explore the unexplored, take risks and think outside the box;
  • nurture new ideas and support innovation. By fostering discovery science we increase the likelihood of major scientific insights and significant adult health outcomes;
  • build strong academic and clinical partnerships to rapidly translate our findings to the medical and general community; and
  • provide a vibrant and multi-disciplinary research training environment for the next generation of medical scientists, and encourage them to pursue new insights that will lead to big outcomes.
