• We celebrated major achievements and reached important benchmarks during 2011-2012, including the official launch of SURE, the Secure Unified Research Environment, and the SEARCH study of Aboriginal child health entering a major new phase.

    More than 20 policy and program agencies have now joined our CIPHER network – the Centre for Informing Policy in Health with Evidence from Research – and the 45 and Up Study has seen significant interest from researchers. More than 440 are now using the Study in their work.

    We have leveraged more than $30 million in research funds for NSW in the past four years and the release of the NSW Health and Medical Research Strategic Review highlighted many themes directly relevant to Sax Institute programs and priorities.
