Pioneering Biomedical Research and passionate about Biomedical Teaching.
We have expertise that ranges from diabetes, cardiovascular and cancer, infection, hearing loss, genetic diseases and pain as well as a community of fundamental researchers exploring the fabric of life. This short video gives a snapshot of some of these efforts and what drives us as pioneers in biomedical research, hoping to make a difference to human medicine & health.
Our passionate teachers aim to inspire undergraduate and postgraduate students and given them the tools and drive to pursue a diversity of careers, whether it’s in biomedical research, a pathway to industry, science teaching, clinical medicine or as a health professional. If you have an interest in any of our core majors (Anatomy, Pathology, Physiology, Pharmacology, Neuroscience or Immunology), our academics are ready to inspire you on a life long journey understanding the human body, how it goes wrong in disease and how we can fix it.

Studying Biomedical Sciences at UNSW will help you discover practical solutions to global health issues. Our interdisciplinary study areas will help you investigate human health, disease and the role technology plays in how our bodies function.
Research is at the heart of the school, and we are proud of our long history across the broad sweep of biomedical research disciplines. As a central element of the biomedical research precinct at UNSW, our school features modern laboratory facilities and leading-edge research infrastructure.
From anatomy and physiology to pathology and pharmacology, the School of Biomedical Sciences has created opportunities for immersive and inclusive student life at UNSW Medicine & Health. View our list of internships, mentoring and peer programs to excel.
Following the amalgamation of Anatomy, Physiology & Pharmacology and Pathology in 2001, the School of Medical Sciences was formed. We have benefited from the rich research and teaching heritage of each of these former schools. Today, we are known as the School of Biomedical Sciences.
