Research in Central Clinical School
The Central Clinical School (CCS) is based at The Alfred Medical Research and Education Precinct (AMREP) and is a centre for clinical and biomedical research and education, offering medical education, undergraduate and postgraduate study programs. CCS’s co-location with a number of Victoria’s premier research institutions and The Alfred hospital enable CCS researchers to undertake collaborative biomedical research in integrated basic, clinical and population based research, and ultimately, facilitate the translation of research into clinical practice.
CCS has scientific and medical expertise in allergy and respiratory medicine (including lung disease, asthma and cystic fibrosis), anaesthesia, blood disorders (including cancer and clotting), diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology, immunology, infectious diseases, neurosciences and neurotrauma, psychiatry, sexual health, surgery and the clinical translation of this research.
CCS has extensive collaborations with other research organisations, industry and health providers.
