The work of the SA Centre will ensure that research breakthroughs lead to direct clinical benefits for patients and help eliminate the need for people going to hospital in the first place.

The SA Centre will also look at the South Australian public as a whole to analyse health trends and determine where health promotion and prevention programs can have the most impact.

The integration of the SA Centre with Transforming Health will be the vehicle that provides the link between the research outcomes and translating advances in medical research into clinical practice, day-to-day care of patients and training of health professionals.
