About Us

Bob Vink, PVC - Health Sciences

As Pro Vice Chancellor: Health Sciences, I extend a warm welcome to you.

Home to the Sansom Institute for Health Research and the Centre for Cancer Biology and incorporating the schools of Health Sciences, Nursing & Midwifery and Pharmacy & Medical Sciences, the Division of Health Sciences has an outstanding reputation amongst industry, government and community for the education of health professionals and delivery of research excellence in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of health issues.

We collaborate with our partners to ensure our innovative research and consultancy is conducted with a focus on applied knowledge in key areas of health, including cancer treatment, genetic and infectious diseases, nutrition and exercise, population health and epidemiology, the early origins of adult health, and healthcare models.

We place a strong emphasis on practice-based learning, with significant investment in teaching and research facilities, including the Health Innovation Building in South Australia’s health and biomedical precinct. Our students gain valuable hands-on experience, learning within modern purpose-built laboratories and on-campus clinics that service the community.

Drawing on world-class skills, knowledge and facilities, we celebrate our successes and invite business, industry and government to explore valuable opportunities for collaboration, discovery, progress and innovation.
