Multidisciplinary and purpose-driven research addressing real-world health issues.

Research in the Faculty of Health

"As the university for the real world, it is vitally important that the results of our research get to those in need, whether that is here or around the world with our international partners in both developing and developed countries.

A unique emphasis in terms of our work is the partnership with healthcare providers; those involved in healthcare teams facing every day the challenges of assessment, diagnosis and delivery of treatments to patients."

- Emeritus Professor Ross Young
