The Joanna Briggs Institute mission is to facilitate evidence based health care practice globally. The Institute focuses on teaching and research related to the translational health cycle.

Also home to world-class research organisation the Joanna Briggs Institute, the teaching and research programs offered through the Institute are underpinned by methodologies and methods that are recognised internationally. The Joanna Briggs Institute is an international, independent, not for profit research and development organisation that focuses on the synthesis, transfer and implementation of evidence to improve global health outcomes.

Translational research is a process derived from the need to ensure that our best knowledge (that is, the best available evidence) is used in policy and practice and involves the ongoing, iterative and interactive process of translating knowledge from research into practice through the ethically sound application of complex interactions between research developers and the end users of research.

The Institute offers specialised higher degree programs that provide students with the skills of evidence synthesis and a comprehensive research program that seeks to address the 'gaps' in the translation of knowledge into action.

We invite you to join us in translating scientific discovery into meaningful outcomes for our communities: from discovery to clinical research to implementation.
