At Flinders, we believe research is an integral and defining element of a University. Flinders is home to a vibrant and constantly evolving research community. Our areas of research strength operate across a range of disciplines broadly housed under 5 themes.
The themes are:
• Biomedical and Clinical Sciences
• Culture, Policy and Society
• Health and Human Behaviour
• Molecular Science and Technology
• Water and Environment
Many of the problems facing the world are best tackled by multidisciplinary teams and Flinders is well placed to provide expertise in these areas.
Under each theme, Flinders has a number of research clusters, institutes and centres, within which Academic staff explore a variety of issues, ideas and problems.
Biomedical and Clinical Sciences – Medical Device Research Institute , Centre for Clinical Change and Health Care Research , Centre for Ophthalmology, Eye and Vision Research
