The Garvan Institute of Medical Research is one of Australia's largest medical research institutions with over 600 scientists, students, and support staff. The institute conducts research on cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease as well as autoimmune and inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, asthma, and Sjogren's syndrome, a chromic automimmune disease in which the body's white blood cells destroy the exocrine glands. The institute developed a test that may predict the outcome of prostate cancer more effectively than the standard (PSA) test. Genetic research is conducted by the institute and in 2014 the institute became one of three organizations in the world able to sequence the entire human genome for less than $1,000 USD.
