Research and Discovery Programs

What we do

The Central Clinical School (CCS) is based at the Alfred Research Alliance (A+) precinct and is a centre for clinical and biomedical research and education, offering medical education, undergraduate and postgraduate study programs. CCS researchers investigate both the basic biological mechanisms of our body (how things work) and the clinical translation of this research (how to fix them when they go wrong).

Our expertise

See our publications for detail of the research, and our news page for feature articles of our research.

For specific research programs at CCS, refer to the CCS centres and departments home pages.



CCS is co-located with a number of Victoria’s premier research institutions, its sister school within the Monash University sub faculty of Translational Medicine and Public Health at the A+ precinct, the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine (SPHPM) and Alfred Health.

Our researchers work collaboratively in basic, clinical and population based biomedical research, which speeds up the translation of research into clinical practice.

CCS has extensive collaborations (see graphic to right) not only with its precinct partners, but nationally and worldwide with external research organisations, industry and health providers.
