Medicine is a thriving and ambitious multidisciplinary faculty - a national leader in medical education, with an outstanding reputation for our combined expertise in research and teaching.

In 2011/12 we celebrated 40 years of medicine at the University.  During this time we have trained thousands of doctors and scientists, and have led cutting edge research in areas as diverse as cancer, osteoporosis, asthma and nutrition.

We lead innovative learning and discovery across the lifecourse from before birth to the elderly, by investing in multi-disciplinary research teams, creative educational programmes and initiating external partnerships and collaborations.

Join Professor Nick Macklon for the next Inaugural lecture on Thursday 10 April from 5.15 - 6.15pm in LT 2, SAB, SGH, followed by wine and canapes. 
Professor Macklon will present 'Sexy Science: IVF under the Microscope'. Since the birth of the first IVF baby in 1978, more than 5 million babies have been born as a result of this technique. As we enter the second generation of children conceived by IVF, media interest remains high, commercialisation is increasing, and a number of new and exciting scientific challenges and opportunities have arisen.
