Researching today to change lives tomorrow

At our core is a commitment to innovation and excellence in health research. Through leadership and collaboration, we champion research to optimise health in our local and global communities.

Our mission is to engage in ground-breaking research aimed at making meaningful improvements to the health of our communities. We do so by advancing the knowledge of science on which health science is founded, expanding the evidence base for health outcomes and health systems, and improving health education.

In pursuit of future research to improve health outcomes of our communities, we support Higher Degrees Research students through a range of activities and programs, ensuring students get the very best out of their learning experience.
