About us

Our aim is to make our graduates career-ready by placing them at the forefront of knowledge into how biomolecules, cells, organ systems, disease and the surrounding environment interact to form functioning organisms (i.e. viruses, bacteria, animals, humans, etc.)

We are one of the largest departments at La Trobe University with over

  • 50 academic staff
  • 50 Higher Degree Research students (Masters and PhD)
  • 30 Honours students.

We teach into all of La Trobe’s undergraduate Science and Allied Health Degrees and offer online subjects through Open Universities Australia. Our staff are frequently recognised with university and national awards for innovation and excellence in curriculum design and delivery.
