The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute is Australia's oldest medical research institute. It was founded in 1915 with financial support from a trust established by Eliza Hall, following the death of her husband Walter. The vision was for an institute that 'will be the birthplace of discoveries rendering signal service to mankind in the prevention and removal of disease and the mitigation of suffering'. The Institute offers postgraduate training as the Department of Medical Biology of The University of Melbourne, and is affiliated with the University of Melbourne and The Royal Melbourne Hospital.
