Research Centres and Institutes
A healthy planet equals healthy people
A Griffith University researcher is helping save the planet in a new study that maps global nutrient production from farms worldwide. PhD candidate Eloise Stephenson highlights that 'this paper provides a breakdown of global agriculture and nutrient production by farm size and this information is critical for promoting healthy diets in the face of population growth, urbanisation and climate change'.
This project, led by Dr James St John, is being conducted across two of the university’s leading research institutes, the Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery and the Menzies Health Institute Queensland.
National nod for food waste reduction program
A Social Marketing @ Griffith program, Waste Not Want Not, was designed in collaboration with Redland City Council, to help reduce food waste in the area – a costly problem both for the budget and the environment.
