UNSW Centre for Big Data Research in Health PhD Top-Up Scholarships


The Centre for Big Data Research in Health (CBDRH) is excited to launch Top-Up Scholarships for high-achieving domestic and international candidates seeking to start a PhD in 2025.


Established in 2014 at the UNSW Faculty of Medicine and Health, CBDRH is Australia's first research centre dedicated to health research utilising large-scale electronic data across biomedical, clinical, health services, and public health domains. The Centre engages with government, industry, healthcare providers, communities and consumers through codesign and coproduction methods to ensure the effective translation and implementation of research findings into health policy, services, and programmes.
