Microbiologists’ warning to humanity 

Microorganisms are critical to achieving an environmentally sustainable future. Ignoring them risks the fate of humanity.  

We invite all microbiologists to endorse the warning and bring this issue to the forefront of environmental debate. 

Nura Gili Indigenous Winter School Program

BABS hosted high school students as part of the Nura Gili Indigenous Winter School Program. These students had the chance to work in our newly opened state-of-the-art laboratories, performing hands-on investigations under the theme of ‘Bacteria’. As a part of the experience, they toured the Ramaciotti Centre of Genomics and our research labs while speaking with academics, researchers and current students. Learn more about our research programs on offer.
