Chemistry has a role in almost every aspect of our lives, from the design of new drugs to curing diseases to the development of self-cleaning materials to the advanced dyes and plastics used in Australia’s $20 note.

Chemistry provides strong linkages to all physical, natural and life science disciplines. We seek to demonstrate the interdisciplinary nature of chemistry as it applies to other sciences such as forensic, biological, physics and the materials sciences

Nicole Gardiner

Griffith forensic science and criminology graduate

When Nicole Gardiner was 10 she used to sneak out of her room to watch criminal forensic TV show CSI. This sparked a passion for forensics that led her to study a Bachelor of Forensic Science and Bachelor of Criminology double degree Griffith. Working as a forensic biologist with the Northern Territory Police Fire and Emergency Service, Nicole says Griffith paved the way for her to be a prime candidate in the workforce. “Griffith gave me the knowledge and the building blocks for my dream career,” she says.
