The Faculty of Medicine has a research office that is dedicated to supporting our research staff and research higher degree students. The Research Strategy and Support office is led by Associate Dean (Research), Professor Elizabeth Eakin and Research Dean, Professor Sean Emery, with support from research partnerships managers, administrative, and external relations staff.

Working with the Faculty Research Committee and Faculty Research Higher Degree Committee, the research office works to:

  • Provide advice to staff on external research funding schemes, strategies for developing competitive funding applications and research training (RHD students).
  • Identify, cultivate and profile the research strengths of the Faculty
  • Facilitate integration across the organisational units that make up the Faculty
  • Facilitate the establishment of new partnerships with other research entities, funding bodies and industry
  • Develop research and research training strategies to enhance the research performance and profile of the Faculty
  • Manage a number of internal and some external research funding schemes.
  • Provide a network of support for research and research higher degree student administrative staff in Schools, Centres and Institutes
