School of Biomedical Sciences

Our school investigates the fundamental biological and physiological principles underpinning human function, in health and disease. Our research is organised into six distinct research groups. Our goal is to translate our research findings for clinical benefit, and to achieve optimal human function across the lifespan.

Working hard to achieve our goals are our academics

Our teaching

The Faculty of Biological Sciences offers an exciting portfolio of undergraduate, Masters and research degrees, including those taught within the School of Biomedical Sciences.

Research impact

We're working on research to change lives, and change the world. Here are some examples of our high impact case studies:

Research carried out by Dr Ichiyama has led to the development of a rehabilitation training regime people with spinal cord injuries causing complete paralysis to walk again.
