Burnet celebrates National Science Week

Burnet Institute

20 August, 2014

It’s Australian National Science Week and we would like to thank you for supporting our scientists in their pursuit of life-changing discoveries!

Burnet Institute is at the centre of a thriving research community in Australia and at the forefront of scientific breakthroughs internationally, thanks to the support of our loyal and generous donors.

Last year, Burnet had a record 201 peer-reviewed scientific papers published, and experienced continued success across its translational research and public health programs.

Burnet Institute Director and CEO, Professor Brendan Crabb pointed out that what makes Burnet’s work unique is the linking of laboratory-based research with field-based public health programs aimed at creating a healthier world.

“We work with the knowledge that through our research and public health activities we are making a difference to the lives of millions of people,” Professor Crabb said.

“Our supporters’ generosity has underpinned our pursuit of scientific breakthroughs, the purchasing of new technology, and developing of new approaches in infectious disease research and diagnostics.”

Burnet has more than 380 staff involved in research and public health programs, working on infectious diseases of global health significance including HIV and AIDS, hepatitis viruses, tuberculosis, malaria and influenza, as well as alcohol and drug use and sexually transmitted infections.

Through its cutting-edge research, Burnet attracts many Honours, Postdoctorate and PhD students across the three centres.
