Formed in 2001, the School united biomedical research on the Clayton campus and is now one of the largest biomedical precincts in Australia.
At a cost of over $110 million, two research buildings were built in 2008/09. The buildings increased the size of the school and provide scientists with the latest facilities and equipment to expand their research programs.
The laboratories accommodate over 500 scientists in over 17,000 square metres of space.
In 2009 the School generated a research income of over $45 million.
The School has over 700 research staff and over 270 PhD students.
In 2009 the School published a total of 500 papers.
35 were published in high impact journals including; 2 in Nature, 3 in Blood, 7 in Immunity, 4 in Hepatology, 1 in Journal of Experimental Medicine, 1 in Cell, 2 in Nature Medicine, 2 in Gastroenterology, 1 in Cell Metabolism, 1 in Nature Biotechnology, 1 in Nature Methods.
Researchers have a variety of biomedical backgrounds and engage in cross discipline collaborations in areas including:
Researchers teach in a number of courses including Science, Biomedical Science, Behavioural Neuroscience, Medicine/Surgery, Nutrition and Dietetics, and Radiography and Medical Imaging.
Encourages collaboration between researchers and investors to accelerate the technology discovery process, and produce commercialised outcomes important in addressing the needs of society.
