Our Research Students
The School of Biomedical Sciences is committed to the training of research scientists. Our research students have the opportunity to study in diverse areas of interest including the visual-guided behaviours of reef fishes, the regeneration of brains following injury, the cell physiology of signalling mechanisms in the heart, kidneys and brain, and the development of new anti-inflammatory drugs. Our postgraduate brochure highlights some of our postgraduate students working in various specialised labs in the School.
Why study in our School?
The ability to tailor your research program to satisfy your interests. Dual supervisors provide avenues for obtaining broader research skills.
The opportunity to be part of an active and vibrant research culture that values its postgraduate student population. We have regular postgraduate symposia that highlight the activities of our students and provide experience in presenting research findings to a wider audience (see below).
The opportunity for students to attend national and international scientific conferences. Academic success demands that researchers present their results to the wider scientific community. This exposure enables researchers to gain critical analysis of their work. The School of Biomedical Sciences recognises the significance of these events and provides financial support for postgraduate students to attend and present at conferences.
Individual work stations for each postgraduate student with access to computers, printers, photocopying, and free internet access.
Financial support of research projects.
Access to tutoring in the highest quality undergraduate programs and mentoring by award-winning lecturers. We offer research students the opportunity to teach in our undergraduate courses. Not only does this provide welcomed additional revenue for research students, it also provides experience in university teaching. Teaching is a valuable means of strengthening your skills portfolio and enhancing your curriculum vitae.

Annually the School hosts two significant events for postgraduate students in schools and institutes within the Faculty of Science: the School of Biomedical Sciences International Postgraduate Symposium and the Annual Public Lecture. These events provided a platform for UQ students, and others within the Asia-Pacific region, to present cutting-edge research in biomedical sciences to peers and mentors.
