Our research includes theoretical understandings of the universe, healthcare and cancer treatments, medical technology and synthetic drug development, renewable energy research, management of the earth’s resources, and investigating how the universe was formed and life evolved.
- Our scientists conduct world-leading research in these disciplines and collaborate with diverse global universities and industry across cutting-edge projects.
- We bring this research experience into the classroom and our study programs prepare students for a diverse range of science and non-science careers. Our students develop deep discipline specific knowledge as well as the skills required for graduate level employment.
- We are one of four schools in the Faculty of Sciences. You will find us at the University of Adelaide’s North Terrace campus.
Harness your curiosity - study with us or join in our research. Let’s work together to discover new perspectives on the universe.
