Biomedical Science and Biochemistry

The anti-epiletic drug phenytoin enters a membrane lipid bilayer pulling water behind it.

Research in the Division of Biomedical Science and Biochemistry (BSB) covers a wide range of disciplines, much of which fits within two broad themes: Host/Pathogen Biology and the Biology of Membrane Proteins.

Ecology and Evolution

The Division of Ecology and Evolution (E&E) is a global leader in key areas of biodiversity sciences including evolutionary, behavioural, physiological and molecular ecology; animal behaviour and life history evolution; phylogenetics, macroevolution and comparative biology; population genetics, quantitative genetics and comparative genomics.  E&E is home to a large and talented group of early career researchers including research students and postdoctoral fellows from around the world.  We take pride in the high quality of our research and the accomplishments of our staff and studen

Plant Sciences

The underside of a leaf

Research in the Division of Plant Sciences (PS) addresses a wide range of topics of fundamental importance to plant function and performance in natural and agricultural environments. Understanding how plants respond to global climate change, both now and in the future, is a unifying feature of our research. We integrate a wide range of approaches, from genomic and molecular technologies to studies of plant biochemistry, physiology, ecology and evolution.
