School students will be able to document their local insect biodiversity and potentially discover new species in their area, as part of a new project led by SA Museum and University of Adelaide scientists.Read more about New citizen science project to create a buzz in rural Australian schools
When Ali Gill enrolled in a science degree, she never thought she’d go on to pursue a PhD to determine the drought tolerance and water use efficiency of industrial hemp.Read more about Ali Gill’s unlikely journey to a hemp PhD
Scientists are a step closer to creating a fluorescent sensor that detects cancerous cells, which could become a new tool in the early identification of cancer.Read more about Fluorescent cells could be key to cancer diagnosis
Our faculty & schools
The Faculty of Sciences is spread across three vibrant campuses. Explore our four schools who each specialise in areas of teaching and research.
Our co-location with major national and global research organisations keeps our researchers and students at the forefront of developing technologies and the latest discoveries in science.
How do we feed the world’s growing population? How do we save our wildlife from extinction? Got an idea that will build a brighter, greener world?
Australian high school students are invited to submit a short video about one of Australia’s big science challenges.
