Research

Our researchers are tackling complex medical problems that represent global challenges to human health. Our internationally renowned research centres, institutes and schools combine modern infrastructure with a culture that champions research excellence. As a Faculty, we possess enormous strengths spanning research, teaching, industry engagement and clinical practice in disciplines ranging from the basic sciences, biomedical research, and development, to clinical trials and public health

Medical and biomedical science research projects within the Faculty have already led to discoveries with far-reaching social and economic impacts, including the Gardasil vaccine for cervical cancer.

Research highlight

Our immunology researchers at the Diamantina Institute focus on diseases of immune regulation. Their work examines the origins and progression of autoimmune disease through genetic studies, clinical and pathological observations, and the development of and in depth analysis of animal models of disease. In so doing, researchers share the common aim of working to develop novel immunotherapies. Clinical trials into diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, spondyloarthropathies, and Type 1 diabetes are testing novel therapeutics, novel uses of existing therapies, and the development of novel assays to help predict disease severity and progression.
