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.
We can help you change the future.

We bridge the gap

Our collaborative team of global biomedical experts bridge the gap between:

Academia + Industry
Ideas + Impact
Focus + Collaboration
Collaboration + Commercialisation
Research + Translation

What is 'proof of concept (POC)?' For industry, POC almost always applies to clinical trials. However, to the academic researcher, POC is often defined differently. How do we ensure clarity and specificity? Find out: https://bit.ly/3wOUQuO

In collaboration with @LSQld, we present a two-day Business of Regenerative Medicine Asia Pacific symposium on 21-22 Oct at @QIMRBerghofer, Brisbane, Queensland to support and accelerate the translation and commercialisation of regenerative medicine. #BRMAP21

Understanding the forces behind choices in academia can help us unlock commercialisation potential. Basic research is critical, but we know many researchers are keen to make a real word impact through research translation.
