Addressing the big global challenges
Our research is structured across themes that align closely with the United Nation SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). Our specific goals and mission are targeted at realising the potential of microbiome science to help address some of the key global challenges we face today – such as reducing the societal burden of chronic disease and incidence of infectious disease; combatting the rise in antimicrobial (or antibiotic) resistance (AMR); and developing new and novel ways for microbiome-based science to contribute to more sustainable food production and agri-industry practices that are better for our environment.
