Healthy Active Communities publication

Research is a key component for staff and students at the Peninsula campus. Currently there are 124 Higher Degree by Research students enrolled at the campus incorporating 50 PhD students and 57 Masters by Research students.

Research undertaken at the campus covers a diverse range of areas with a theme of developing healthy, active communities for all.

The Penisnula campus is the home of many dynamic, world class researchers recognised widely for expertise in their fields, from three Monash faculties: Business and Economics, Education, and Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.

Collaboration is a key component of research. Our researchers may work in multi-disciplinary teams and often partner with local business, and government groups at every level to explore issues of local national and interntaional significance.
