Postgraduate education

The CAB puts a major effort in the education and training of postgraduate students of both Science and Veterinary backgrounds. Since its formation in 1990, over 50 postgraduate students have successfully completed their studies and have found rewarding and stimulating positions in both Veterinary and Medical Research Institutes in Australia and overseas.

The opportunity to interact closely with commercial projects within CAB also provides extra scope for job opportunities in Industry and for the commercialisation of research results.

Prospective students are encouraged to browse through the CAB website to become acquainted with the various research programs available at CAB and contact Prof J-P Scheerlinck for further details.
