Astrophysics is a branch of science that applies the laws of physics and chemistry to explain the lifecycle of stars, planets and galaxies in the universe as well as how the universe has changed with time.
Meta-analysis is a research synthesis method to reveal the robustness and generality of research findings. Researchers in UNSW Science have not only conducted meta-analyses but also developed methodologies for meta-analysis.
Evolutionary biology is the study of organismal adaptation over both short and long-time scales. Evolutionary biology research in UNSW Science strives to understand biological diversities and phenomena in the natural world in the light of evolutionary theory.
The School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences is a powerhouse of biomolecular research. Our research is grouped into three clusters; genomics and bioinformatics, microbiology and microbiome, and molecular and cell biology.
The ocean covers two thirds of the planet and contains over 90% of all life. Oceanography is the study of the mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology of the ocean and is a fundamentally interdisciplinary and data focused research area.
Recent advances in molecular and cell biology, especially the continuing development of recombinant DNA technology, have revolutionised our understanding of the structure, function and regulation of individual genes.
UNSW Chemistry carries out a wide range of research across a variety of chemical disciplines. Each research project can be aligned with one or more of the school's main research themes; catalysis and energy, nanoscience and medicinal chemistry.
