Research is about more than writing papers and proposing new ideas. It’s about bringing together the brightest minds to reimagine research and find the answers to the questions that really matter.

Courage, creativity and collaboration – these are the foundations of our research. And we are just getting started. Our brave approach to research is opening the door to bright new ideas and endless possibilities. For colleagues and students, we’re disrupting the research landscape to enable bright minds to rise up and make a difference. For businesses we’re redefining what it means to engage with our community. For our community, we’re creating new opportunities to build and grow.


From health and equality to addiction and climate change, discover how our experts are reimagining research.
