WELCOME TO THE IMAGING COE

ABOUT US

The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Advanced Molecular Imaging (Imaging CoE) develops and uses innovative microscopy and imaging techniques to observe the details of how the immune system functions at the molecular level. Funded in 2014 with more than $39 million over seven years, the Centre brings together leading biologists, chemists and physicists from five major Australian universities, as well as scientific and commercial partners globally. Collectively, the Centre uses a truly multi-scale and programmatic approach to imaging to deliver maximum impact. The Imaging CoE is headquartered at Monash University in Melbourne, Victoria with four collaborating organisations – La Trobe University, University of New South Wales, University of Melbourne, and the University of Queensland.

VISION & OBJECTIVES

The Imaging CoE aims to visualise and interpret the atomic, molecular and cellular interactions involved in our immune response. We achieve this by developing and using a wide range of tools across chemistry, biology and physics.

What we do

Research Programs

While our Centre is composed of chemists, immunologists, physicists, structural biologists, single molecule scientists and biophysicists, we break these down into nine research themes which cover three key disciplines: immunology, chemistry and physics. The researchers within these disciplines are engaged in the application and fundamental development of imaging, for the mutual benefit of all. Read More

Partnering

The Imaging CoE is passionate about maximising the impact of the cutting edge research conducted within the Centre. Therefore, in addition to making scientific discoveries that impact on our knowledge and understanding, we also aim to translate our discoveries into tangible outcomes for society at large, either through commercialising our discoveries into products and services or through inspiring and educating the next generation of scientists to drive innovation.

Community

Our centre has a commitment to the communication of science. Our vision is to create a body of information about the scientific work of the Centre that demonstrates the power of interdisciplinary science and develops strong community links, including with secondary schools. Read More
