Sydney Institute of Marine Science

Macquarie University is one of four founding universities of The Sydney Institute of Marine Science (SIMS), located at beautiful Chowder Bay, Mosman in Sydney. SIMS is a collaborative research institute bringing together scientists from the universities in the Sydney region, several government departments, The Australian Museum and the Australian Defence Science & Technology Organisation. Macquarie University is involved in several exciting research projects based at SIMS, such as invertebrate immunology, developing biomarkers to assess estuarine pollution, octopus behaviour, wobbegong tag & release, urchin aquaculture and marine mammals. Its location near the Sydney Heads provides not only an amazing scenic lookout but gives access to high quality seawater to service the state of the art facilities such as the SIMS research aquarium.
