About our research

The Health Sciences Office of Research and Development promotes and supports staff and students in research across the Faculty. We are continually exploring innovative solutions to health problems through our strong links with professional bodies and industry.

The majority of staff are involved in leading research and many prominent health practitioners are involved in teaching, ensuring that there is strong integration of theory, research and practice. The Curtin Health Innovation Research Institute provides a focus for staff and student research into a range of health issues gaining prominence in the community which have been translated into 9 Areas of Research. Areas of Research have projects that are available for new higher degree by research students and potential collaborative partners.
