Cellular and Molecular Biology
The Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) solves both fundamental and practical problems relating to health and the environment by carrying out research into molecular and cellular biology.
Chemistry, biotechnology and forensic sciences
We solve real-world problems through our research into pharmaceuticals, natural products, agricultural biotechnology, biomedical detection and materials science.
Environmental management and sustainability
Our researchers aim to make an immediate difference to the current planning and management of human use of the natural environment and resources.
Integrative physiology and biochemistry
Our research examines the function of animals and plants addressing key questions in organismal biology and adaptation to environmental change.
Marine, freshwater and aquaculture sciences
Our research focuses on a wide range of aquatic areas. We seek to improve local and national industries, communities we live in, and influence the broader global scientific community.
Palaeobiology and global change
Our researchers use geological records to understand and answer key questions about evolution, development and extinction on our changing planet.
Behaviour, ecology, evolution and ecophysiology
Our research centres on biological problems that are specifically related to the behaviour, ecology, evolution and ecophysiology of bird, sea and plant life.
Wildlife and conservation biology
We aim to understand the processes that influence the distribution of plants and animals, in order to improve biodiversity conservation outcomes.
