Prince Henry's Institute of Medical Research (PHI) was a Melbourne-based independent, not-for-profit, medical research institute based at Monash Medical Centre in Victoria, Australia. In January 2014 it merged with the Monash Institute of Medical Research and has since been renamed Hudson Institute of Medical Research.

History[edit]

Originally established in 1960 as the Medical Research Centre at Prince Henry's Hospital in South Melbourne, the Institute moved from its St Kilda Road premises during the amalgamation of Prince Henry’s Hospital with the Queen Victoria Medical Centre and Moorabbin Hospital. It now operates as an independent Institute based at Monash Medical Centre in Clayton, Melbourne, Australia.

The Institute’s name-sake originates from Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester whom served as the 11th Governor-General of Australia.
