Time to take stock: mini symposium provides research overview

Thank you to everyone who spoke at last week’s mini-symposium here at Monash. It was a great opportunity to hear all the different research programs that are currently underway.

While Centre members are working on a range of different organisms and biological systems including microbes, unicellular algae, invertebrates and fish, the core theme of understanding how size and shape affect energy acquisition and loss was a unifying theme.

The CGB allows all the different areas of research to use energy as a common currency for understanding life histories of individuals and dynamics of populations, communities and even ecosystems.

We are looking forward to further research stories at upcoming monthly meetings.
