Message from the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research)

The University of Melbourne carries out research to enrich our understanding of the world. To grow the store of human knowledge. And to address major social, economic, health and environmental challenges. We instil this spirit of discovery in future generations of researchers. And we ensure that all our graduates have essential research skills.

The University is one of the largest and most productive research organisations in Australia. In 2018, we invested more than $A1.2 billion in research. We have thousands of research projects underway at any one time.

I am immensely proud of this University and its research workforce. Our researchers create, curate and critique the knowledge that helps society thrive. They are at the forefront of fields as diverse as Indigenous knowledge, human rights law, quantum computing, vaccine development, and fine arts and music. They work together to respond to the world’s biggest challenges. And to enlarge the knowledge and understanding of what it means to be human.

The research we conduct on behalf of society is enriched through collaborations with industry, government and the community. And by working together with other universities in Australia and around the world. Indeed, we benefit in many ways from our rich global networks and a thriving international student community.

I invite you to explore how the University of Melbourne is discovering, creating and sharing knowledge through research.

Professor James McCluskey
