Research

Academics in the School of Medicine undertake research across a matrix of research facilities and institutions, including the world-leading UOW Molecular Horizons facility and the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute (IHMRI).

Academic staff members build knowledge that complements teaching programs across a number of disciplines, producing graduates in Medicine, Exercise Science and Rehabilitation, and Nutrition and Dietetics, all with a commitment to the health of Indigenous Australians.


The school research strategy aims to translate basic science into healthy lifestyles and evidence-based clinical practice. Our research strengths are broad and cover the spectrum of research ranging from basic science discovery, translation of research to humans, patients, clinical practice and populations.
