21st Century Medicine - 2012 Lecture Series

The medicine of tomorrow is a direct outcome of the research of today. Sydney Medical School has a large research portfolio that extends from fundamental biology to the public health measures to control disease and to leadership in large international clinical trials. Its biomedical scientists are at the forefront in areas including genetics and cell biology; its clinician scientists directly translate bench-top research into better health and improved patient care.

The research is organised around six major disease and health-focused themes: each of the lectures in the 21st Century Medicine series is presented by one of these themes.
