Australian National Science Week

It’s National Science Week and we are celebrating our talented research scientists in their pursuit of life-changing discoveries.

Burnet Institute is at the centre of a thriving research community in Australia and at the forefront of scientific breakthroughs internationally.

Our researchers are on track to exceed last year’s Institute-record of 216 peer-reviewed scientific published papers, and continue to experience outstanding success across a broad range of translational research and public health programs.

During National Science Week find out more about the cutting-edge discoveries or the impact of public health research underway in Australia and internationally.

Burnet has 24 laboratories with more than 340 scientists and public health professionals working on the world’s most devastating diseases including HIV, malaria, hepatitis viruses, tuberculosis, influenza, and also in alcohol and other drug use, and sexually transmitted infections.

Through its cutting-edge research, Burnet attracts many Honours, Postgraduate and PhD students across the three centres and currently has 71 students working on a variety of projects.

National Science Week started in 1997 to acknowledge the contributions of Australian scientists’ to the world of knowledge.
