Institute for Clinical Pathology and Medical Research

The Institute for Clinical Pathology and Medical Research (ICPMR) is located at Westmead Hospital and incorporates the Western Sydney Area Pathology Service and the Division of Analytical Laboratories, is probably best known as Australia's most comprehensive provider of pathology services. As well as servicing hospitals and laboratories in Western Sydney, we provide tertiary services throughout NSW and, where appropriate, throughout Australia and even to some overseas centres. ICPMR is far more than simply a pathology service. It has a commitment to fostering excellence in clinical care, public health, teaching, training and medical research. The work performed in ICPMR ranges from improving the health of children in Tibet to fighting heart disease and cancer, and helping solve crimes.
