The University issues media releases on major announcements and research findings, while journalists regularly call the media office for expert comment on topics such as the economy and food security. We’re home to some of the world’s best experts in a variety of academic disciplines across all nine faculties and our business school. We do research that is focussed on changing lives for the better, and we’re on the cutting edge of scientific endeavour.
