The Menzies School of Health Research (Menzies) is an independent medical and research institute, a national leader in health, education and research training.
Menzies has made a difference in people’s lives for more than a quarter of a century.
Specialising in Indigenous and tropical health research, the team at Menzies carry out research in more than 60 Indigenous communities across Australia and in developing countries in our region.
We continue to find new ways of breaking the cycle of disease and improving the health and wellbeing of Australian society and beyond.
Menzies was established in 1985 as a body corporate of the Northern Territory (NT) Government under the Menzies School of Health Research Act 1985 .
This Act was amended in 2004 to formalise Menzies' relationship with Charles Darwin University (CDU). Menzies is now a school within CDU's Institute of Advanced Studies.
Her Honour the Honourable Sally Thomas AM, Administrator of Northern Territory, is the official Patron of the Menzies School of Health Research.
