About Us

Medical School Entrance

The Department of Oncology & Metabolism was formed on 1 September 2015 from the merger of the Departments of Oncology and Human Metabolism.  This merger brings together research strengths in bone oncology and tumour microenvironment, genome biology and life course biology.

The Department provides a dynamic research environment with an internationally renowned portfolio of basic, clinical and translational research, encompassing the life course. With access to world class facilities, our researchers study human processes from the level of basic biology through to diseases such as cancer, osteoporosis and diabetes. We focus on translating scientific discoveries into meaningful advances in the clinic that can benefit our patients and the general population. The Department is home to a dedicated network of academic and clinical specialists, independent research fellows, postdoctoral research scientists, students and professional services staff.
