Many Hunter researchers are national and international leaders in the field.. They work and collaborate across the research spectrum - from basic laboratory science, to developing new drugs and treatments, implementing clinical trials, improving clinical care, health behaviour and prevention, population health, as well as improving health service policy and planning.
