Monash University was established in Melbourne, Australia in 1958. We are a youthful organisation, enthusiastic, optimistic and accessible. We believe quality education and research can change the world for the better.
Monash Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences is the University's largest research faculty and has established a reputation for the quality and impact of its research in health care and the biosciences. Beyond basic science we have a very clear focus on translational research: taking our frontier scientific discoveries and converting these into measurable human health benefits.
