Animal Research Centre
University of the Sunshine Coast
The Centre brings together researchers focused on developing innovative solutions to health problems that are of significance to wildlife conservation and the sustainable production of domesticated animals. Many of the diseases studied by our researchers also cross over into the human health setting, requiring "One Health" solutions that will assist stakeholders such as state and local governments, companies, not-for-profit organisations, veterinarians and medical practitioners in reducing the prevalence and impact of diseases on all affected hosts. The Centre research is cross-disciplinary and brings together expertise in genetics, molecular biology, microbiology, immunology, epidemiology and ecology, covering a range of animal health research areas.
