We are accelerating research areas where we will be world-leading in the next decade.
Futures 2022 is supporting our research ambitions by investing in infrastructure, recruiting top students and academic researchers and developing partnerships with other world-leading universities and external partners.
The story so far...
We have made significant investments into three of our first 2022 Futures projects. Imagine: Imaging Life; The Florey Institute for Host-Pathogen Interactions; and Plant Production and Protection (P3).Our flagship projects>
What is it all about?
This initiative will help you to think about longer-term research plans. We will provide you with the support you need to help realise your visionary ideas.Hear more about 2022 Futures from Professor Richard Jones>
Preparing for growth
Building partnerships and networks for the future success of each project is very important. We're building links with industry in the agritech sector and initiating international strategic alliances to allow our PhD students to visit other world renowned laboratories in infection and microscopy.How are we building links?>
Meeting the challenge of understanding any living system by visualising its component parts and how they interact with each other using state-of-the-art super resolution microscopy.More on Imaging Life>
The Florey Institute for Host-Pathogen Interactions
Understanding how the human body reacts to pathogens and how treatments can be developed to take this into consideration.More on the Florey Institute>
Plant Production and Protection (P3)
Translating our basic plant and soil sciences research into practical solutions to feed the world’s expanding population.More on P3>
