Share this:

Come along on an exciting journey as our dedicated team members explore some of the different nodes of Phenomics Australia. We’re diving into the places where all the action happens, meeting cool people, and checking out the awesome tools that keep things running smoothly.

Phenomics Australia Histopathology and Digital Slide Service  – Our journey kicks off at the University of Melbourne, meeting the passionate staff instrumental in Phenomics Australia success. From state-of-the-art equipment to innovative solutions, we were able to get a peek at the gadgets and gizmos that make our Pathology service stand out.

iPSC Derivation and Gene Editing FacilityNext up, to the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, where the magic happens! Our team was able to hang out with the smart people who run things here, witness the intricate equipment driving progress in our In Vitro Genome Engineering and Disease Modelling service and gained insights into the collaborative spirit that defines Phenomics Australia.

Melbourne Advanced Gene Editing Centre (MAGEC)Transitioning next to the Olivia Newton John Cancer Research Institute, we chat with the talented people who bring ideas to life and got a closer look at the special instruments they use in our In Vivo Genome Engineering and Disease Modelling Service. But that’s not all – we’ve also captured a video showcasing a remarkable process that promises to captivate your attention (wait for the bam!).

Victorian Centre for Functional Genomics (VCFG)Next stop, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre a place bursting with creativity and talent. Our team members along with other NCRIS representatives immersed themselves in the vibrant atmosphere, interacting with the diverse talents contributing to our Functional Genomics and High-Throughput Screening service success. We were able to uncover the role of specialized equipment in transforming ideas into reality.

Australian Drosophila Transgenic Facility (ADTF)As our journey progressed at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, we unveil the newest addition to the In Vivo Genome Engineering and Disease Modelling Service family. This cutting-edge node is a testament to our commitment to innovation and growth. Our team members engaged with the dynamic individuals who are shaping the future of new clinical understanding and treatments. Stay tuned for an in-depth exploration of the exciting developments emanating from the ADTF.
