The Faculty of Science has a number of upcoming events for students, teachers and the community. Our events include tours, seminars, information sessions and opportunities to get involved. Take a look below to see what's happening in Monash Science.
The Australian bush fires, the pandemic and other catastrophes have made it clear we are living in a new climate disrupting world.
The Faculty of Science at Monash University is proud to launch its new ‘Climate Change Seminar Series’ showcasing our world-leading research in this area.
The next guest speaker in the series is Professor Christian Jakob who is a climate scientist. He’s interested in how scientists around the world can work together better to improve climate models. He has worked for organisations as varied as the United States Department of Energy, the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, and the Bureau of Meteorology.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic the Biospectroscopy group within the Monash School of Chemistry have become part of a research working group headed by Prof. Dale Godfrey and Prof.Damian Purcell at the Doherty Institute to develop a new IR diagnostic for the detection of COVID-19. An infrared-based test would be reagent-less, able to test hundreds of thousands using the same instrument, be highly sensitive and inexpensive, producing results in minutes. The talk will focus on new developments in the arena of point-of-site COVID testing highlighting rapid diagnostic-based tests and our new infrared based saliva screening test.
