Our scientists play a leading role on the national and international stage, collaborating with major institutions and industries worldwide.
The School of Science strongly supports the Campus' vision to add value to the country and region through research innovation and external engagement. The School has a strong research profile with over 60 PhD students and 40 MSc/Honours students. We collaborate closely with Monash's Faculty of Science in Clayton, Australia and a number of other world-leading international institutions.
Our research is supported by well-equipped facilities that meet the demands of academic research and industrial collaborations. We have a dynamic group of experienced full-time academic staff with established research track records in the areas of:
- Health Sciences
- Tropical and Environmental Biology
- Food and Plant Sciences
- Genomics and Bioinformatics
Monash University has appointed a number of individuals to act as Research Integrity Advisors. These academics and professional staff may be approached when researchers have concerns about appropriate conduct of research and may be considering making allegations of a breach of 'the Code'. Their role is not to investigate or assess any allegations but to use their research experience, knowledge of Monash policy and familiarity with the accepted practices in research to assist researchers to understand what research misconduct entails and what their options are to address any concerns. Their role is not to make judgements about whether specific concerns meet criteria for research misconduct. For our School, the Research Integrity Advisor is Professor Sunil K. Lal.
The School of Science also works closely with the Malaysian Biotechnology Information Centre (MABIC) to identify and establish invaluable research and academic links with the biotechnology industry in Malaysia and around the region.
