Centre for Immunology
The Centre for Immunology is a research centre of St Vincent’s Hospital and the University of New South Wales.
The Centre is located on the St Vincent’s Darlinghurst Campus and also occupies space in the Garvan Institute building. Plans are underway to collocate all St Vincent’s Hospital laboratory research programs in a new facility currently under construction on the St Vincent’s Research & Biotechnology Precinct site with the aid of state and federal government funding.
