EXCELLENCE AND IMPACT
Imaging allows us to see the hidden universe that lies within the cell.
Why does this matter? Our health – the ability to ward off infection and disease – depends on our immune system. If we understand its complexity, we can develop more effective treatments and prevention.
We focused on excellence and impact across six categories. To achieve this, we collaborated across disciplines and institutions and shared access to technology, core facilities, scientific expertise and data.
In 2014, the Imaging CoE was established, headquartered at Monash University in Melbourne. Funded with over $39 million, the Centre brought together leading biologists, chemists and physicists from five Australian universities, as well as scientific and commercial partners globally. Collectively, we have developed new microscopy and imaging techniques that allow us to visualise details of how the immune system functions.
