Biomedical Sciences and Department of Surgery Collaborative Research Initiative

The School of Biomedical Sciences and the Department of Surgery met in a collaborative research initiative on Tuesday 27th March 2018 at the Woodward Conference Centre.

Sixty five academics from both entities attended, with a mix of basic scientists and clinician researchers.

The event was opened by MDHS Associate Dean of Research, Professor Mike McGuckin, and it is hoped that this initiative will assist in driving an ongoing relationship between the Department of Surgery and the School of Biomedical Sciences. We are aiming to facilitate greater interaction and collaboration by offering pilot project funding for our joint researchers to undertake internationally or nationally collaborative research, with funds provided by both entities and the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences.
