Australian Health Research Alliance (AHRA)
The Australian Health Research Alliance (AHRA) is a national grouping of the seven NHMRC-accredited Advanced Health Research Translational Centres (AHRTCs) and two Centres for Innovation in Regional Health (CIRHs) found across Australia.
As a body, through collaboration both across and within the membership centres, AHRA aims to drive excellence in health research and in health care delivery that responds directly and quickly to the needs of patients.
