The School of Medical and Health Sciences is the lead research school at Edith Cowan University. We have three research centres and over 100 researchers. Together we have been awarded $40 Million in research funding, authored over 1000 papers, and completed 100 students over the last five years.

Our research encompasses medical science, biomedical science, human biology, human genetics, paramedical science, nutrition and dietetics, speech pathology, occupational therapy, exercise and sports science, public health, occupational health and safety, health promotion, addiction studies, and occupational and environmental health.
