Our staff and facilities support research across the University, Australian community and internationally in natural, agricultural, physical, life and biomedical sciences and engineering.

Research areas

Biological science

Research in the biosciences incorporates the natural sciences. It involves understanding the biology (from whole organism to subcellular level) of organisms, with applications in fields such as marine biology, agriculture, zoology, plant biology, and evolution.

Additional contacts: Asst/Prof Jeremy ShawProfessor John Kuo

Biomedical science

Research in the biomedical sciences span basic, applied, translational and clinical research which develop knowledge in the area of human health and disease. It seeks to  improve the understanding, aetiology, diagnosis, monitoring, management or treatment of physical or mental disease or other health conditions in humans.

Biomedical Science Application Group Leader: Assoc/Prof Matt Linden

Additional contactsAssoc/Prof Paul Rigby, Assoc/Prof Kirk Feindel, W/Prof David Sampson

Earth science

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.

Earth Science Application Group Leader: Dr Janet Muhling

Additional contacts:  Professor Matt Kilburn, Asst/Prof Laure MartinDr David Wacey

Physical science

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.
