World-class research for real-world impact. Think Murdoch.

Research and scholarship are the cornerstones of Murdoch University. We have a proud tradition as a research-led internationally recognised University, and our researchers address some of the major challenges of the 21st Century.

Murdoch University’s distinctive research agenda informs leaders, nurtures innovative thinkers and inspires problem-solvers who are capable of tackling the most pressing regional and global challenges.

Our world-leading research in food security, sustainable development and health futures is applied to some of the most pressing realworld challenges of our time, by skilled researchers who perform and deliver in the most highly demanding work environments. Our researchers excel in their fields because they not only know… more importantly, they also understand.

Our research portfolios are coordinated through a dynamic central hub - Research & Innovation. Our team works with researchers through the whole journey of discovery, ensuring safe environments and ethical frameworks. Our advisors guide researchers through the complexities of grants and contracts and research management, offering support and insight across graduate supervision, international relations and business development.
