Engage with us at the Sansom Institute and you’ll tap into the work of leading scientists finding solutions to some of the big health care challenges of the 21st century.
Named after eminent Australian pharmacist Lloyd Sansom AO, the institute was founded in 2004, uniting UniSA's internationally-recognised research strengths in molecular medicine, pharmaceutical science, and the quality use of medicines and pharmacy practice. Since then the institute has built upon its strengths and expanded its focus to encompass a unique breadth of research that extends across the entire health and biomedical spectrum.
From cancer treatment to genetic and infectious diseases, nutrition and exercise, population health and epidemiology and the early origins of adult health, our researchers' interests are many and varied, but what all share is a spirit of cooperation and a desire to improve human health through innovative, outcomes-focused research.
With state-of-the-art laboratory and research facilities and links to industry and research partners across the globe, the benefits of being part of the Sansom Institute are many.
