Our research helps shape public health interventions and policies. We focus on where we can make a difference and respond quickly in a dynamic world where new priorities emerge at any moment. This is what differentiates and inspires us.
Innovation for Impact
Our Health 25 Strategy sets a course to pursue our ambitions of improving quality of life for all by tackling the complex and important health challenges our society will face in coming years.
Our research themes are designed to deliver meaningful impact—they are areas where we excel in advancing medicine and health, not only eliminating health disparities but also fostering social wellbeing. We make a difference in everyday lives affected by:
- Infectious Disease, Immunity and Inflammation
- Neuroscience, Mental Health and Addiction
- Cardiac, Vascular and Metabolic Medicine.
At UNSW Medicine & Health, we pride ourselves on our innovative and inclusive approach to research. We collaborate widely within and beyond our themes by partnering with other researchers, institutions, clinicians, and patient communities both inside and outside the Faculty.
We're working on improving treatments for ovarian cancer patients; guiding the most effective and equitable responses to COVID-19; supporting people with intellectual disability to enjoy the highest attainable standard of health and wellbeing; finding new therapies for cardiovascular disease, and much more.
