Higher Degree Research



Postgraduate research students at UNSW Medicine not only benefit from being able to learn alongside globally recognised researchers, but also from being part of a Faculty ranked among the world’s top 50. UNSW Medicine is also one of Australia’s leading research-focused medical faculties and provides students with new, state of the art research and teaching facilities including the Lowy Cancer Research Centre, the Wallace Wurth Building and the newly-developed biomedical research precinct.

Research in our key themes of (i) Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction, (ii) Infectious Disease, Immunity and Inflammation, (iii) Cancer, and (iv) Non-Communicable Diseases is not only advancing medical technologies but improving the health of our special populations.

UNSW Medicine is building the future of healthcare, with leading researchers and clinicians translating discoveries into breakthrough cures, therapies and treatment strategies and turning high achieving students into caring healthcare professionals with globally recognised qualifications. The Faculty also encourages commercialisation and the development of professional networks with industry to ensure discoveries made at UNSW are translated into better health outcomes in the community.

We invite all students who are motivated to make a difference, to innovate, to generate new ideas and question old beliefs to join us.
