Hosted at the Faculty are several groups which specialise in various research areas including brain research, youth mental health, infectious diseases, medical bionics, and research & development for Indigenous health professionals among other areas.
Department of Medical Biology
More than 140 PhD students work as part of research teams investigating important questions in medical research in this Department.
The University of Melbourne Centre for Cancer Research
Led by Professor Sean Grimmond, the University of Melbourne Centre for Cancer Research (UMCCR) aims to foster innovation and integration in cancer care, research, education and training to achieve a world-leading cancer centre and workforce. It brings together leading cancer researchers from across the University to enable collaboration that ultimately results in improved outcomes for cancer patients.
The Sir Peter MacCallum Department of Oncology
The co-location of research and research training capability with a hospital dedicated to cancer treatment, enables researchers and clinicians to work side-by-side to make significant contributions to basic research, translational research and clinical trials for cancer.
Medical Bionics Department
Research undertaken in MBD encompasses the biology, engineering and clinical study of cochlear implants (bionic ear), hearing aids, retinal prostheses (bionic eye), brain implants for epilepsy, as well as intractable neurological & psychiatric disorders, with multidisciplinary research teams working to advance knowledge and capability in the areas of bionic hearing, bionic vision and neurobionics.
Florey Department of Neuroscience and Mental Health
Research undertaken at the Florey Department of Neuroscience and Mental Health spans a variety of disease states with about 70 per cent devoted to basic science and 30 per cent to translational research.
Health and Biomedical Informatics Centre
HaBIC's main themes of research address the challenges associated with the processing of biomedical data, information and knowledge, facilitating outcomes relating to:
Centre for Youth Mental Health
CYMH have the experience and expertise of world leaders in the field of youth mental health, and have become an internationally renowned research centre. The Centre's work focuses on understanding the biological, psychological and social factors that influence onset, remission and relapse of mental illnesses in young people.
Melbourne Neuroscience Institute
The MNI draws on the astounding breadth of Neuroscience research activity at the University of Melbourne and is the principal body for the promotion of cross-disciplinary research in the Neurosciences at the University of Melbourne.
The Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity is an unincorporated joint venture between The University of Melbourne and The Royal Melbourne Hospital, combining research, teaching, public health and reference laboratory services, diagnostic services and clinical care in infectious diseases and immunity.
Melbourne Poche Centre for Indigenous Health
The Melbourne Poche Centre for Indigenous Health provides training and development programs for emerging and established Indigenous leaders.
