WELCOME TO THE IMAGING COE
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.
