• An RMIT honours program provides you with foundation research skills to underpin your future career as a scientist or researcher in the biomedical sciences.

    Specifically, honours students develop :
    scientific communication skills
    critical thinking capability
    experience in scientific analysis and problem solving
    knowledge of research theory and practical methods
    research independence and capacity for self-directed learning
    Research experience gained as part of an honours program is required for future higher degree by research study, most academic and research positions, and increasingly for positions in other sectors of industry.
    In consultation with the program coordinator and your potential supervisor, you will be allocated a project that aims to complement your skills and areas of interest.
    Honours projects
    The projects are developed specifically for honours students and may be a preliminary exploration, a smaller component of a bigger research project or may also be part of an existing collaboration with industry. All projects draw from the wide range of disciplines taught across RMIT’s biomedical science programs.
    Research areas include:
    Cardiovascular biology
    Comparative endocrinology
    Cell biology and signalling
    Drug delivery
    Exercise metabolism and physiology
    Growth and development
    Gut neuroscience
    Medical radiations
    Molecular biology
    Natural products
    Obesity and diabetes
    Pharmacology and pharmaceutical sciences
    Physical activity and disability
    Skin cancer
    Thrombosis and vascular diseases
    Transfusion/transplantation science
    Wound repair

    Research community
    This research extension to your undergraduate degree is closely aligned with RMIT’s research community. Depending on your project, you will work with a supervisor who is actively contributing to RMIT’s research strength area of biomedical and health innovation and is connected to recognised local and international research groups and institutes.
    You may also have the opportunity to use RMIT’s extensive biomedical and biotechnical equipment and facilities and to work collaboratively with professional technicians and staff from these facilities.
