Laying a platform towards remarkable research through innovation and collaboration

Griffith Sciences’ expertise across the traditional disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics is matched by a superior understanding of the impacts and opportunities presented through continued technological advancement. This creates the bedrock of learning and teaching strategies, while also translating into successful research outcomes across a broad range of scientific fields.

Griffith researchers are providing scientific solutions to global challenges through our research. Griffith was named in Nature, the world’s leading multidisciplinary science journal, as the Nature Index Rising Star for the Oceania region in 2018.

Profile: Alan Mackay-Sim

Griffith University’s 2017 Australian of the Year, Emeritus Professor Alan Mackay-Sim has spent his career researching how nerve cells in the nose regenerate and pioneered a way to safely apply that same regenerative process to damaged spinal cords. His stem cell research work is also making inroads into creating treatments for conditions such as schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease and Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia.
