The School of Medicine houses a vibrant program of research, including over 100 academic and other research staff as well as nearly 100 research students. The School has established a reputation for research excellence, underpinned by success in NHMRC and other competitive funding schemes, and research publications of consistently high impact. This is underpinned by strong strategic partnerships, including with Barwon Health, CSIRO (AAHL) and a network of clinical providers across Western Victoria.
The School's research is centred on four Research Pillars:
- Infection, Immunity & Cancer;
- Metabolic & Musculoskeletal Medicine;
- Rural & Regional Health.
Each of the School's Strategic Research Centres, Research Groups and Research Partnerships align closely with one or more of these Research Pillars.
