Connecting Australia’s chemistry researchers with the global bioscience research community.

Compounds Australia - Logo

Compounds Australia provides access to critical infrastructure and expertise to ensure flexible, efficient, reproducible and cost-effective compound management, supporting biological characterisation of compounds throughout the drug discovery pipeline.

Compounds Australia is part of the Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery (GRIDD). GRIDD tackles devastating diseases using the unique Compounds Australia and NatureBank resources, and an extensive global network of partners.

Our libraries

Compounds Australia securely stores and curates sample libraries submitted by Australian based chemists. The facility makes these compounds available at low cost in flexible screening and assay-ready formats to academic and not-for-profit researchers.

Testimonial

"Communication from Compounds Australia was extremely efficient and unambiguous. Importantly, after the primary screen concluded and the end user was looking to validate the key targets, Compounds Australia went above and beyond to identify solutions to a major problem we faced in sourcing sufficient reagents. Without their diligence and commitment, this project would not have been completed as originally anticipated."

Associate Professor Kaylene J. Simpson, Head, Victorian Centre for Functional Genomics
