University of Melbourne leads life science rankings

Seven of the Group of Eight universities make the global top 100 in the new Times Higher life sciences ranking. As usual the University of Melbourne tops the team at 32, followed by the University of Queensland (=34), ANU (45), University of Sydney (47), UWA (69), UNSW (=93) and Monash U (=97). The University of Adelaide just misses the cut, being in the 101-125 band with James Cook U. All up 26 Australian universities and six from New Zealand, led by the University of Auckland (at 176-200) are in the world’s first 500.

Peking University (23) and the National University of Singapore (26) are ahead of them all as are three Canadian institutions, the universities of British Columbia (21) and Toronto (22) and McGill (31).

It’s rankings as usual at the top, with Harvard U first followed by Cambridge, Oxford, Stanford, MIT, Johns Hopkins, Princeton, CalTech, Yale and Imperial College London.
