Research Projects

We actively support undergraduate students and practitioners/clinicians wanting to undertake research into all aspects of child health. Issues related to the health of infants and children drive our research questions that are addressed in a variety of clinical settings. Our laboratory-derived discoveries can also be rapidly tested in relevant clinical settings.

We encourage applications for Honours (Bachelor of Medical Science, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Biomedical Science), Masters and PhD research projects, and have fantastic opportunities for early career academic paediatricians and scientists who have recently completed a higher degree. We have extensive experience in supporting international students at all levels of post-graduate research.
