Study with us

At the Centre for Molecular and Medical Research (C-MMR) we research cancer, infectious diseases, diabetes and much more, at a molecular level. Study with us and you'll have the opportunity to collaborate with industry and academia. You'll also gain access to the tools needed to push the boundaries of understanding health and disease.


CStrong student focus

C-MMR researchers foster strong supervisory relationships with their students, whether they are based on campus, or with our partners locally or overseas. There's a vibrant research student community comprising around 60 students from over a dozen countries.

Cancer, infectious diseases, diabetes and obesity can have devastating impacts on the individuals affected as well as the community as a whole. Our research aims to confront these diseases head-on to reduce this impact.
