    Research at the Australian Museum involves the study of our collections and how they tell us about our world and history. We seek to ensure that our research is relevant and innovative, drawing on the vast resources of knowledge within our collection. The Science Strategy Panel provides an objective viewpoint on our research and assists the Museum in communicating its research activities to the wider public.
