Driving Change in Healthcare
The question of how to integrate new research findings and education in healthcare is crucial for ensuring optimal patient care and the sustainability of our healthcare systems.
Many of these systems, including those ranked among the best in the world, are faced with rising pressures from the overuse, underuse, different use and waste of healthcare practices and services with varying outcomes.
An interdisciplinary team of experts at Monash and Warwick have united to lead a local and international program of research and education to revolutionise healthcare improvement.

Drug Discoveries

Building a research community of global excellence through drug discoveries
Our commitment to a stable, ongoing partnership enables both institutions to strategically plan, develop and harness capabilities in world-relevant fields.
One such field is polymer chemistry where the need for polymers stretches across global priorities in energy, food security, innovative manufacturing, and science and technology for health.
The Alliance has developed a joint strategy to establish a world-class collaborative polymer chemistry research programme that brings together talented researchers, facilities and networks to leverage existing and new capabilities.
