School of Molecular Bioscience
The School of Molecular Bioscience was one of the first and largest schools in Australia devoted to research and teaching in the areas of microbiology, biochemistry, molecular biology and genetics, cell biology and human nutrition. The School organisation reflects its research and teaching strengths and priorities being composed of five research disciplines in Structural Biology, Microbiology, Molecular Biology and Genetics, Nutrition and Metabolism, and Proteomics and Biotechnology. In 2012 the School was comprised of a total of 60 academics (including 4 Fellows of the Australian Academy of Science, 2 Federation Fellows, and 17 postdoctoral fellows) and 35 general staff. A central mission of the School is in the training of the next generation of scientists and because of our research commitment we are very well placed to translate the latest scientific discoveries from the research lab into the lecture theatre and practical class.
