Our Biology PhD student body includes a range of bioscience PhD work including biomaterials PhD and molecular biology PhD.
Students are part of a thriving research culture that undertakes international collaborations and delivers high impact change to local and national environments.
As one of our team you will be providing material based solutions to emerging global health and environmental priorities, with membership offered across a number of relevant research groups and centres, for example, the Biomaterials Research and Enterprise Group and, the Centre for Stress and Age-Related Disease (STRAND) or the Centre for Regnerative Medicine and Devices.
You will join our researchers as they examine and innovate in the structure, design and functional performance of natural and synthetically derived pure and composite biomaterials with diagnostic or therapeutic impact on living systems.
We conduct research within the broad areas of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Biological Sciences, Biomedical Sciences and Chemistry. We are open to enquiries relating to any of these wider fields, but also have particular strengths in research in the fields of biomaterials, chemistry, chronic disease, ecology and conservation, paediatrics, sensory neuroscience, microbiology, biochemistry, regenerative medicine, ageing, diabetes, drug delivery, drug stability, and cancer.
Our diverse research provides an excellent environment to tackle global problems using multidisciplinary research approaches. A thriving postgraduate community of over 30 PhD students is supervised by subject specialists from across the life and physical sciences. Research is supported by postdoctoral researchers, visiting fellows and technical staff.
