Medical Research Divisions

  • The Division of Cancer Research focuses on biological, translational and clinical cancer research. Our aim is to understand the biological and behavioural mechanisms underlying cancer and to translate this research into the clinic to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease.

  • The Division of Molecular & Clinical Medicine is a world-class biomedical research centre that aims to improve the health of individuals and the community through its translational research programme, which primarily focuses on disorders of cardiovascular disease and metabolism.

  • The Division of Neuroscience provides a platform for an abundance of research technologies, with approaches spanning from the cellular and molecular level through behavioural to clinical neuroscience and neuroimaging.  The overarching goal is to use these approaches to understand mechanisms involved in such research themes as: addiction, cognitive development and pain.

  • Research in the Division of Population Health Sciences uses advanced health informatics and novel clinical trials to address important health problems, delivering practical solutions leading to health improvement for individuals, communities and populations.
