About Science Stories

Monash Science Stories is a digital platform devoted to portraying, via words and video, the rich tapestry of human stories that form the heart of the Monash University Science community.

The documentary-style films and written stories provide a deep insight into the passion, intelligence, diversity and expertise of the people who make up Monash Science’s research and teaching core.

Monash Science is home to research and teaching staff at the forefront of their field – the work of its people changes lives, shapes our conversation and provides new ways to view and understand our world.

Their work – exploring the way atoms behave, understanding the inside of stars, conserving waterways, cultivating cures for disease, studying behaviour – doesn’t just take place in a lab or the class room. Our people are part of vibrant, complex groups who can be found across the globe, finding answers to some of the most challenging questions we as a human race can imagine.

For the first time, these researchers have shared their stories; the forces that drive them, the ideas that inspire them and the legacy they want to leave.
