Department of Biomedical Sciences

Department of Biomedical Sciences

As part of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and MQ Health, we are committed to improving patient health through world-class fundamental and translational medical research.

Staff in the Department of Biomedical Sciences teach and conduct research in many core disciplines: anatomy, biomedical engineering, biomechanical engineering, cancer biology, neurobiology, pathology, pharmacology, and physiology.

Through our PACE (Professional and Community and Engagement) program, you will be taken out of the classroom and into an industry related scenario where you’ll get hands-on experience in the field. More information can be found in the Handbook.

Our students benefit from a strong culture of innovation and collaboration, work in start-of-the-art research facilities and receive opportunities for international research experience and travel.
