Research in BABS is aligned to four discipline areas:
- Environmental Microbiology
- Infectious Disease
- Molecular Medicine
- Systems and Cellular Biology
There is a wide scope of projects to interest Honours students, with research spanning human bacterial pathogens, functional genomics, genetics, viruses, cancer, cell biology, bioinformatics, extremophiles, and more.
The work spans from hypothesis-driven ‘blue sky’ research that advances human knowledge, to application-focused research that has potential medical and industrial benefits for society.
Our Honours students benefit greatly from world-class facilities that include the Ramaciotti Centre for Genomics, which houses nextg eneration genomic sequencing technology.
