Associate Professor Paul Grbin
Paul Grbin is the joint head of the Wine Microbiology and Microbial Biotechnology Group within the School of Agriculture, Food & Wine.
The research conducted within this group is principally funded through the Australian Grape and Authority (AGWA) and the Australian Research Council (ARC) with strong support from the Faculty of Sciences and the School of Agriculture, Food and Wine.
The group is devoted to new grape and wine microbiology and biotechnology initiatives to bring long-term benefits to the Australia wine industry. It is located in the Wine Innovation Cluster (WIC) situated on the Waite campus. This state-of-the-art facility brings together all partners on the Waite campus that are devoted to research for the Australian wine industry. The partners include AWRI, CSIRO and SARDI . The critical mass of personnel coupled with research infrastructure is unique in Australia and allows for rapid targeted viticulture and oenology research to address industry needs.
