The Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI) is changing the rules in the fight against disease, embracing new perspectives for new solutions. We're part of the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.
Home to more than 700 researchers, 120 research groups and 200 international research collaborators, we're one of the largest – and highest quality – research institutes in the southern hemisphere.
With a growing pipeline of biomedical breakthroughs – such as our work with stem cells and immunology – we're accelerating discoveries in the lab into clinical treatments.
Hone your expertise under the guidance of at least two supervisors. Join our growing network of more than 270 PhD students across 100 labs, focused on making novel scientific discoveries.
We're committed to making the discoveries that will relieve the future burden of disease. But we need your help.
Our more than 120 specialised research labs are led by recognised leaders in the biomedical field.
We're making the research discoveries that tackle global health issues.
Humanity continues to face challenges in the fight against disease. Watch our two-minute video to discover what we're doing about it.

A woman’s fertility decreases as she ages – largely because of fewer healthy oocytes or eggs, and those that are available for fertilisation often have chromosomal abnormalities which result in a higher incidence of miscarriage and genetic disorders such as Down’s syndrome.
The immune system is vitally important for resolving COVID-19 when individuals are infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Moreover, the vaccines that are being administered to millions of people across the globe are designed to ‘pre-warn and arm’ the immune system so that if infected with SARS-CoV-2, individuals are significantly less likely to develop severe disease or die. Here, two crucial arms of the immune system, namely B cells and T cells, play a central role.
Monash University researchers have made a breakthrough discovery that could pave the way for the development of novel non-opioid painkillers (analgesics) to safely and effectively treat neuropathic pain.
