Research is at the heart of the mission of the School, and we are proud of our long history of excellence across the broad sweep of biomedical research disciplines. As a central element of the biomedical research precinct at UNSW, our School features modern laboratory facilities and leading-edge research infrastructure. Our staff and students use their disciplinary expertise in molecular and cellular biology, experimental physiology, pharmacology and tissue pathology to explore the causes and treatment of a wide range of diseases important to our community. They have a strong commitment to assisting the next generation of biomedical researchers gain expertise through higher degree studies, and are supported in their work by an integrated team of research support staff. Many of our researchers are recognised internationally as leaders in their field of research, and we have strong links with colleagues within UNSW, as well as leading research groups both nationally and internationally.
