MD students at the University of Melbourne are invited to hear about the work we do at the Baker Heart & Diabetes Institute, and available projects in:

As a research scholar in our department, you will spend 4 weeks in MD3 (preparation phase) and 18 weeks in MD4 (hands-on research at the bench or clinical data collection, analysis and presentation of findings).
Our basic and clinical researchers are dedicated to understanding cardiometabolic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, heart failure, rhythm problems, heart attack and stroke as well as finding new clinically relevant approaches to diagnosis and treatment for these diseases.

The Baker Department of Cardiometabolic Health is a collaboration between the Melbourne Medical School and the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute, leveraging both organisations’ strengths in cardiometabolic capabilities.
Research in the department focuses on improving the lives of people with, or at risk of, cardiovascular disease (CVD), obesity and diabetes. These global health challenges affect many millions of people in Australia and globally.
Work at our department involves:

  • Developing novel diagnostic tools and therapeutics.
  • Using big data and new technologies, such as proteomics, lipidomics, metabolomics, transcriptomics, genomics, to transform prevention, diagnosis and disease management.
  • A focus on clinical translation.
  • Contributing to clinical service delivery and prevention
