Division of Research - Overview

 The Division of Research was established in 2001, incorporating and expanding the role of the former Research Committee. It is the central body coordinating the myriad of research activities within the Hospital to ensure a concerted effort in sync with the national emphasis on life science research.

The Division comprises 2 Departments and is under the purview of a Chairman who is supported by the Research Secretariat.
