The Faculty of Medicine has a research office that is dedicated to supporting our research staff and higher degree by research 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.
