Our People

 

Research at the CNBP is both innovative and transdisciplinary - achieving our goals requires us to stretch the limit of knowledge in these disciplines. 

At the CNBP we are highly dependant on interdisciplinary collaborations - our teams work together across scientific disciplines and geographical boundaries.

CNBP will nurture our most precious resource, young Australian researchers, to gain a first rate scientific education and research experience, both in Australia's leading laboratories and those of international and industry partners.
