Our research: making the world a better place
Researchers from the School of Veterinary and Life Sciences conduct work across three research areas that align directly with national priority areas recognised by the Australian Research Council:
Murdoch University prides itself on its fundamental and applied research that is making a difference in the world we live in.
The School of Veterinary & Life Sciences (VLS) is a highly integrated, collaborative and research-intensive school, with 130 academic staff, 30 research associates and post-doctoral fellows, and 300 doctoral students.
We maintain strong links to industry, other Australian and international universities, Government agencies and NGOs to ensure translation and application of our research in the real world.
We are proud to be part of the Innovative Research Universities (IRU) helping to maintain human and animal health, and to improve and manage natural, agricultural and managed ecosystems to ensure their health for future generations in the context of global change.
Six Research Themes
We have six Research Themes across the School, which are articulated and translated into practice through the development of policy and engagement with stakeholders. We work with individuals, communities, organisations, industry and government at local, national and global scales to inform science and guide policy towards on-ground solutions.
You can also browse through our exciting research bulletins detailing some of our research activities and latest findings.
You can also access the Murdoch University Research Repository, an open access digital collection of research created by Murdoch University staff and students. The repository aims to collect, preserve and make openly available the scholarly output of Murdoch University and is a service of the Murdoch University Library.
