Undergraduate opportunities at the Charles Perkins Centre

The Charles Perkins Centre is proud to support a senior undergraduate unit of study and a range of honours projects.

The Charles Perkins Centre is excited to offer a diverse range of Honours projects for third-year students in School of Medical Sciences and School of Life and Environmental Sciences.

In 2015, we trialled a new interdisciplinary approach to science education that will break existing disciplinary boundaries. 

Metabolic Cybernetics (NUTM3004) is a senior unit of study that uses interdisciplinary and problem-solving approaches to a very real-world problem – obesity and diabetes. It is the first of its kind in Australia and Southeast Asia, with student teams participating in the analysis of cutting-edge research.

This senior unit is offered to students in the Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Medical Science, Bachelor of Applied Science and Bachelor of Liberal Arts and Science. It is taught in the Charles Perkins Centre and is coordinated by the discipline of Nutrition and Metabolism, the School of Molecular Bioscience and the Charles Perkins Centre.

For more information about this unit, please contact Dr Kim Bell-Anderson.
