Griffiths Lab adds value by aiming to remove conceptual and methodological roadblocks to the advancement of science and by using high level biological theory, particularly an evolutionary perspective, to promote a more integrative approach to research questions.
Griffiths Lab is the University of Sydney component of the Theory and Method in Biosciences group, a collaboration between researchers at the University of Sydney and Macquarie University, led by Paul Griffiths and Pierrick Bourrat.
Our research bridges philosophy of science and the biological and biomedical sciences, with many group members holding degrees in both fields. The group is funded by research grants from the Australian Research Council, John Templeton Foundation, and other funders. Our grants support a vibrant, collaborative community of postdoctoral fellows, visiting fellows, PhD students, and undergraduate researchers.
