Honours is a fourth-year program which gives you the opportunity to apply your knowledge, skills and intellect on an exciting piece of original stem cell research.

Honours projects with the Centre for Stem Cell Systems provides students with a unique opportunity to integrate multiple disciplines and contribute to cutting edge research. Through their research, students will also gain exposure to the rapidly advancing ideas and technologies used to study stem cells.

If you are interested in completing your Honours Program in the stem cell area, explore the research projects and people completing work on stem cells who are available to supervise Honours students. When you have identified an area you are interested in, contact the Research Group Leader and discuss your options with them. It is advisable to approach a number of potential supervisors.
