Australia's First Peoples

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we research, work and live, and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging. We recognise that the knowledge of Australia's First Peoples has been crucial to past and current research efforts into Australian antimicrobial phytochemistry.
