Get ready for the biocentury
Our world is built on biology - every living organism wired with genetic hardware. In the 1970s, we began deciphering its code. Today, we’re altering it.
With advanced technologies and data analytics opening doors to things that would have seemed miraculous only years ago, biological science is poised to transform life as we know it. DNA origami, genetic modification, stem cell engineering, clones - feeding, fuelling and healing the world has never been more exciting.
You’ll have access to world-class training from leading researchers, and some of the most advanced technology in the southern hemisphere. And you’ll graduate ready to join one of the fastest growing sectors in the world.
Advancing health through research
The University conducts acclaimed research in a wide range of biomedical and biotechnological areas. Drawn to us from all over the world, our researchers - the same people who’ll teach you as a student - are pursuing potential cures for
major diseases and exploring biological processes at a molecular level.
These pioneering scientists are also developing, and teaching with, state-of-the-art equipment, such as CRISPR gene editing technology. The University of Adelaide houses the first genome editing facility in Australia.
