The ANU Research School of Biology carries out research, research training (MPhil and PhD), undergraduate and coursework Masters teaching in a wide range of biological and biomedical sciences. Research in the School is carried out in three Divisions:
and in the newly-established Computational Biology and Bioinformatics Unit.
The School oversees the ANU Biology curriculum, offering a diverse range of courses that form part of both undergraduate, Honours and graduate coursework Masters degrees. The education program is 'research-led' and features teaching contributions from leading scientists from a wide range of biological and biomedical disciplines. Students have opportunities to work in research labs in the School, both as part of their degrees and as Summer Scholars.
Many of the labs in the School are housed in the new Linnaeus Building which provides state-of-the-art laboratories and research infrastructure. Much of the School's teaching activities are carried out in the new Sciences Teaching Building, which is immediately adjacent to the Linnaeus Building and which provides modern teaching laboratories and flexible learning facilities.
