These schools work together to deliver world-class research and education across the spectrum of medicine and health-related fields, working in partnership with the health sector at local, national and international levels.

The John Curtin School of Medical Research (JCSMR) is a multi-disciplinary research institute with a distinguished history of ground-breaking discoveries in Immunology, Genomics, Cancer Research, and Neuroscience. The Centre for Personalised Immunology (CPI) is a translational research centre located within the JCSMR focussed on understanding the mechanisms of immunological disease as a means to improve diagnosis and treatment. The CPI operates as a national and international network of clinicians and researchers.
