Our staff and facilities support research across the University, Australian community and internationally in natural, agricultural, physical, life and biomedical sciences and engineering.
Research in the biosciences incorporates both natural and biomedical sciences. It involves understanding the structural, immunological and compositional properties of cells and tissues, with applications in fields such as biomedicine, marine biology, agriculture and evolution.
Analysing and characterising the minerals and microstructures of our rocks and soils, our research increases understanding of our planet’s past and guides the sustainable development of our resources for the future.
Our research involves the characterisation of the structure, composition and chemistry of materials down to the nano or atomic scales. We are involved in a wide range of collaborative research programmes in areas such as nanomaterials/nanotechnology, semiconductors and materials engineering.
