Health Sciences Research and Education Building for Notre Dame's Fremantle Campus

In 2006, the University was successful in its application to the Commonwealth Government for capital funding for what will be the first building the University has constructed in the West End of Fremantle.

From the area of research infrastructure, it received a grant of $2.675 million towards a project costing over $6.0 million for a new building which will house the new Institute for Health and Rehabilitation Research.

The facility will support research, research training and teaching in the areas of Education, Nursing, Health Sciences and Medicine.

Vice Chancellor, Dr Peter Tannock said “This is a most exciting development for Notre Dame.  It will do much to advance our research and quality in these vital areas.  It is the largest capital grant the University has received.”

The Centre will be overseen by a Board comprising experts from the University’s Schools of Education, Health Sciences, Nursing and Medicine.  The Board will be chaired by Professor John Bloomfield, an international expert in the health sciences area.

It will be linked electronically to the University’s Broome Campus which is a base for Kimberley Aboriginal community research and also to the Sydney Campus.

Building commenced on the site, lot 57 Henry Street, Fremantle, in April 2007.
