The Biomagnetics Group at The University of Western Australia is a dynamic, well established research group housed within the School of Physics, equipped with a modern wet lab and magnetics facilities. In recent years there has been rapid growth in interdisciplinary research evidenced by increased funding from major funding organisations. We remain actively involved with interdisciplinary research by conducting investigations into the role of physics and magnetism in biology, medicine and nanotechology.

Under the guidance of Professor Tim St Pierre, the members of the group work on a diverse range of topics including iron-overload disorders, magnetic nanoparticles and magnetotactic bacteria. Over the last few years an increasing level of international interest within the field has resulted in collaborations with institutions both within Australia and overseas. With this continued growth it it seems likely that there will be a bright and exciting future ahead for research within this field.
