Go behind the scenes of one of Victoria's leading medical research institutes
As part of the Day of Immunology Victoria 2023, organised by the Australia and New Zealand Society for Immunology (ASI), the St. Vincent's Institute of Medical Research (SVI) is opening its doors to the public.
Discovery tours provide a unique opportunity for the community to find out more about medical research, see our state-of-the-art facilities, learn about our exciting discoveries and talk to passionate scientists about their research.
At SVI, we work collaboratively to tackle critical health challenges that face many Australians, including cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease, infectious disease and dementia.
At SVI, we celebrate fundamental biological discovery and practical application alike because both are required to improve disease treatment, diagnosis and prevention. There are no breakthroughs, no new wonder drugs, no big leaps forward without new understanding.

Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology - Day of Immunology
The purpose of the Day of Immunology is to strengthen public awareness of immunology as a basis for individual health and well-being.
Established in 2005 by the European Federation of Immunological Societies (EFIS), the success of Day of Immunology led to it being celebrated worldwide since 2007. Under the auspices of the Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology (ASI) and other generous sponsors, Day of Immunology has been celebrated in Victoria since 2009.
