The Centre for Animal Health Innovation (CAHI) is focused on developing innovative solutions to health problems that are of significance to wildlife conservation and the sustainable production of domesticated animals.
CAHI research brings together experts in genetics, molecular biology, microbiology, immunology, epidemiology and ecology, covering a range of animal health research areas.
Marine and Coastal Ecology is an emerging research strength at USC. Our scientists include world-leading researchers in the areas of deep sea biology, marine climate change ecology and the environmental impacts of human activities on coastal ecosystems.
Much of their work involves research collaborations with international and national institutions.
