Who we are

BioCurate is a bold, collaborative venture, dedicated to translating Australia’s research potential to drive economic returns and health impacts worldwide. Created jointly by two of Australia’s leading biomedical universities – the University of Melbourne and Monash University – with the support of the Victorian government, we identify promising biomedical research and help accelerate its development into new therapies. We are operationally independent, with a team that brings decades of scientific and commercial expertise, enabling us to recognise and realise real-world potential and providing a critical bridge, aligning the efforts and interests of industry and academia.
