School of Molecular Sciences
We offer research opportunities across all areas of molecular science, including chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology, molecular genetics and nanotechnology.
ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology
The ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology is a national research centre of 180 researchers and students focused on better understanding the way in which plants interconvert forms of chemical energy in response to environmental change.Read more
Hartmann Human Lactation Research Group
Human milk is a diverse fluid containing macronutrients, vitamins, hormones and live cells uniquely tailored for the human infant. Myriad health benefits, both short and long-term are conferred to both the mother and infant via human milk and lactation. Further early nutrition is implicated in the 'Developmental origins of Health and Disease' (DoHaD).Read more
