Department of Molecular Sciences

The Department of Molecular Sciences is a research intensive department of academics and students who study and teach chemistry and molecular cell sciences. The focus of our academics is at the exciting molecular science interfaces with chemistry, biology and materials. Our students gain cross-disciplinary perspectives while developing discipline specific skills in chemistry and biomolecular sciences.

We apply this philosophy of studying “molecules to cells” to achieve a sustainable environment, understand health and disease, develop materials and advance new molecular technologies.

Research and teaching strength in Molecular Sciences includes analytical chemistry, biochemistry, biotechnology, cellular biology, medicinal chemistry, microbiology, molecular biology and genomics, synthetic biology, organic/inorganic synthesis, proteomics, protein chemistry, physical chemistry.

Bridging Courses

We work to provide a pathway from school science to internationally leading research. As part of this route, we are pleased to be offering courses in chemistry, mathematics and laboratory skills. There is a range of course options available.

These courses are a fantastic opportunity to get to know your fellow students and academics, brush up on your maths and science skills and gain the foundational knowledge you’ll need to progress through your first year’s science studies at Macquarie.
