Western Sydney is a great base for pregnancy and childhood research. Nepean Hospital is one of the largest maternity units in Australia. We have a very stable population where generation after generation continue to reside in the area. This gives a unique opportunity for long-term epidemiological studies and makes monitoring of research far easier.
The people of Western Sydney will benefit in many ways from research being carried out in the area. Research opportunities will help attract the best clinicians and academics into the area. It will also encourage pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to consider investing in the area. Licensing discoveries will open up national and international markets. Most importantly we will be building a foundation for our children... our future.
