Monash University’s globally esteemed research reputation
Founded in 1958 in Melbourne, Australia, Monash University has rapidly grown into a large network of campuses and international centers that have facilitated strategic partnerships across the globe. We are now proudly Australia's largest university.
Despite its relatively young age, Monash University has developed a global reputation for conducting groundbreaking research, particularly in the areas of clinical medicine and health sciences. Without the passionate work of Monash University researchers, seat belts in cars, influenza drugs, IVF and the Low FODMAP Diet wouldn’t exist today.
As the youngest member of the prestigious Group of Eight, Monash has already developed an impressive history of innovation through research collaboration and engagement with leading industry partners. Monash was ranked 73rd in the latest Times Higher Education World University Rankings and is considered one of the top 50 universities worldwide in the medical and health science fields. Today, Monash continues to lead and partner with teams around the world to conduct first class research in over 150 different areas of study.
First in FODMAP
Over 10 years ago Professor Peter Gibson and his research team at the Department of Gastroenterology proved that a Low FODMAP Diet can help to alleviate the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Since then, the team’s contributions have helped millions of people across the globe to manage their IBS.
Thanks to Monash University’s extensive work in this area, sufferers of IBS can take their gut health back into their own hands by managing their symptoms through a specialized diet.
