THE new-look Muresk Institute

THE new-look Muresk Institute, part of Curtin University, has signalled a more comprehensive approach to agribusiness, biosciences and landcare.

The institute will also be headed up by former Department of Agriculture director Dr Graeme Robertson.

As part of the move Curtin’s Department of Environmental Biology will be included under the Muresk umbrella as one of three academic areas.

Separate academic areas of Applied Biosciences and Agribusiness have also been created as part of the change.

Dr Gary Hepworth has been appointed as the head of Agribusiness. He has been with Muresk for 15 years.

Dr Glen Whisson has been named the inaugural head of Applied Biosciences, which includes aquaculture, viticulture and horticulture.

Professor Jonathon Majer will continue in his role as head of Environmental Biology. He has been in that position since 2001.
