Collaboration with industry, other institutions and research organisations, the community, not-for-profits and government means research outcomes in our School can have a global impact.
The School of Biomedical Sciences includes some of the University, and Victoria’s, most historically renowned departments, hosting a number of unique programs of community and scientific interest.
The Biomedical Precinct
The School of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Melbourne is part of the largest biomedical precinct in the southern hemisphere. It is a hub of innovation, exceptional collaboration opportunities and cutting-edge facilities.
Virtual Reality Learning Studio (VRLS)
The Virtual Reality Learning Studio was developed in the Department of Physiology by Dr Charles Sevigny (Senior Lecturer) and Mr Jairus Bowne (Senior Tutor). The development of the VRLS has involved collaborations between physiologists, anatomists, cardiologists, game developers, animators and graphic artists.
Centre for Muscle Research
Investigating the mechanisms underlying skeletal muscle wasting and weakness, the Centre develops and tests therapies to counteract muscle wasting disorders. It receives industry backing to perform pre-clinical trials on therapeutic compounds for disorders caused by ageing (sarcopenia), muscle diseases (such as the muscular dystrophies) and cancer cachexia.
