James Cook University - Mackay Education Research Centre (JCU)

James Cook University

James Cook University is a university of the tropics, spanning three tropical campuses across two countries. Teaching and research at JCU reflects its tropical focus in four related themes: Tropical Ecosystems and Environment; Industries and Economies in the Tropics; People and Societies in the Tropics; and Tropical Health, Medicine and Biosecurity. The landmark State of the Tropics [http://sott.jcu.edu.au/] report coordinated by JCU, highlighted that most of the world’s population will live in the tropics by 2050. Increasing pressures, particularly on the environment and health, are among the challenges that JCU’s tropical research is helping to address both in the region and globally.
