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

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

  • Provide advice to staff on external research funding schemes, strategies for developing competitive funding applications and research training (HDR 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 higher degree by research student administrative staff in Schools, Centres and Institutes
