Research in the Faculty
The Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences is Australia's largest biomedical research faculty. We employ more than 1500 academic staff, 4000 honorary staff and 1500 graduate researchers undertaking world class research across a wide range of health and social issues in a diverse range of research settings. Researchers are located at key sites across Victoria, with more conducting research around the world. These renowned experts from every field can be found in labs, hospitals, affiliated research institutes and all across the wider community.Information and support tools for Faculty staff are available on the Faculty intranet.
Stem cell research is an multidisciplinary field integrating developmental and cell biology, computational and systems biology, clinical medicine, engineering, sociology, philosophy and law. Students at the University of Melbourne can study stem cells, and gain research experience in undergraduate and postgraduate programs.
The multidisciplinary nature of stem cells complements a diverse array of disciplines, electives, and majors. Stem cell specific subjects and research projects are available for undergraduate students.View
