Research in Central Clinical School

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. See our research projects.

Our expertise

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), head and neck cancerskin cancer, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology, immunology, infectious diseases, epidermal development, neurosciences and neurotrauma, psychiatry, sexual health , surgery. 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).

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

For specific research programs at CCS, refer to the school's centres and departments' home pages.  See links for all CCS centres and departments.



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.
