THE FUTURE IS SMALL.
THE FUTURE IS SCIENCE AT SYDNEY. JOIN US.






From building the newest nanoscience facilities for the Australian Institute of Nanoscience to investigating the smallest forms of life in microbiology, and from the chemistry of designing materials to sense the presence of particular substances at the molecular level to unravelling the functions of specific genes, scientists in the University of Sydney’s Faculty of Science are working on our small future.

As home to the new Australian Institute of Nanoscience, the University of Sydney is bringing together the best nanoscience expertise and building the latest nano science facilities, to enable new research in optics, photonics, materials science and medical science.

Our microbiologists are investigating how multiple antibiotic resistance occurs and is passed on in a number of different bacteria.

Our chemists are designing molecular materials with nanopores that can store atoms or molecules, such as catalysts, fuels or sensing molecules.
