The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) is designed for students with a keen interest in cutting edge medical research.

The Australian National University provides research students with a vibrant research community and outstanding program support. When selecting a research program, an institution’s reputation is everything. ANU is one of the world’s leading universities, and the smart choice for your research program.

The major component of a research program is a substantial written work known as a thesis, which investigates a particular subject or issue. As a research student you will work with increased independence, under the direction of an academic supervisor or a supervisory panel of academic staff.
