Discover how our researchers are making a global environmental impact
For billions of people around the world, cereal-based foods including bread, rice and noodles provide a significant proportion of daily calories and energy. However, many of these foods are poor sources of essential micronutrients like iron and zinc.
Go behind-the-scenes with some of our top researchers and discover how they're making a global impact by redesigning wheat to create healthier versions of one of the world’s favourite foods – bread.
Join our sustainability programs
At Melbourne, we're proud to be a global leader in sustainability. You'll have the opportunity for students to act on sustainability issues, through our resources, volunteering and training, and staff-student collaboration.
