Established in 1982 the Institute was the first comprehensive facility with the most modern recombinant DNA C2 C3 laboratory in Australia, comprising of 3,000 square metres of laboratories,clinical offices, and support facilities, the Institute houses every discipline and activity applicable to effective research in neuromuscular diseases. Subsequently with the incorporation of the Centre for Neuromuscular and Neurological Disorders of the University of Western Australia into the ANRI facility the focus has expanded to include neurological research.

Located on the Queen Elizabeth II Medical Centre site together with Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, the location is ideal as a means of fulfilling the primary aim of the Institute. This aim is to maximise benefits to patients by integrating basic scientific research with ongoing health care and medical training in a sympathetic and supportive environment. Prof. Lind sees patients with Dr Rick Stell in the ANRI Movement Disorder Clinic on Monday mornings and is in regular discussions with Dr Stell and Dr Julian Rodrigues to optimise clinical care for patients undergoing deep brain stimulation surgery for movement disorders.
