Fighting diseases of global impact

Our unique research expertise makes us the only institute of its kind in Australia and only one of a handful in the world. We seek to collaborate with leading scientists around the world to build a critical mass around this multidisciplinary research. Global collaboration is essential to achieving our vision to bring forward novel drugs and vaccines to the community.

Our research

A major research theme is discovering the role that carbohydrates play in disease and with that knowledge to develop new drugs and vaccines which will interfere with the biological process of disease.

We provide a multidisciplinary approach to research and education, spanning medicinal and computational chemistry, various biological and physical sciences. This approach presents an exciting platform for the control of a wide-range of medical conditions such as infectious disease, cancer and other disorders.
