About Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute
The Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) was created in 2006 to deliver on the promise of regenerative medicine.
It has built on the work of Monash University pioneers in IVF and stem cells to attract global regenerative science leaders and a new generation of young, creative researchers to inspire and to lead the cutting edge of this exciting new therapeutic field.
ARMI scientists explore new research methods and test new ideas that will allow us to bring revolutionary breakthroughs on heart disease, muscular dystrophy, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, brain injury and autoimmune disorders from bench to beside faster.
The Institute also trains the next generation of basic and clinical scientists and acts as a focus for public engagement and the source of advice for policy makers.
ARMI currently has 16 research groups, and a total of 230 researchers, students and support staff from 21 different countries. Its location on the Monash University campus offers a highly stimulating biomedical research environment allowing Institute researchers to work closely with other university research organisations including the Monash Institute for Medical Engineering (MIME) and Biomedical Discovery Institute (BDI) and CSIRO, one of Australia’s leading multi disciplinary research organisations. The vision promoted at ARMI is to exploit and connect the multi disciplinarity of its groups, aligning their complementary capacities around key research pipelines; Heart and muscle development and regeneration, Immunity and Regeneration, Stem cells and Regeneration and Neural regeneration.
