Faculty support for research administration
The Research Development team provides support to academic and professional staff across the Faculty in the areas of: Research Strategy & Governance, Research Institute Partnerships, Research Information, Research Training and Research Collaboration & Funding. Working closely with the Associate Deans for Research and Research Training, the team provides advice and support to the Dean and Heads of Schools on the research strategy of the Faculty, with a focus on fostering excellence and impact in research. Staff in the Research Development team work closely with staff in Chancellery and University Services (Academic Services, Business Intelligence and Reporting, and Research, Innovation and Commercialisation) to provide integrated support for our researchers.

The School's museum
Henry Forman Atkinson Dental Museum
The Henry Forman Atkinson Dental Museum is unique in Australia for its age and comprehensiveness and its ability to provide insights into the social history of health, the history and development of the dental profession, and the history and development of dental education in Victoria. It aims to inspire, engage and educate audiences about the changes that have taken place in dentistry from the mid-1800s, when unregulated practice was widespread, through numerous developments to the eventual establishment of the Australian College of Dentistry in 1897 and the emergence of an organized, qualified profession.
