Multi-million dollar funding awarded to ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre for Cryo-Electron Microscopy of Membrane Proteins for Drug Discovery
July 17, 2020
We welcome the announcement that the Monash University-led ARC Training Centre for Cryo-Electron Microscopy of Membrane Proteins for Drug Discovery has been successful in obtaining funding.
BioCurate is an in-kind participant in the Centre, which will investigate membrane protein structures in detail, using the power of cryo-electron microscopy, to guide structure-enhanced drug design.
The new training Centre, to be led by Professor Patrick Sexton at Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (MIPS), will provide strong links between academic and commercial partners.The MIPS-led consortium includes the University of Melbourne, University of Wollongong, the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research (WEHI) and industry partners including Catalyst Therapeutics, AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Dimerix Bioscience and Thermo Fisher Scientific. More than 20 investigators will be involved across the collaborating organisations.
Congratulations to the Centre team on the exciting news and we look forward to working alongside the Centre’s investigators training the next generation of researchers in the principles of therapeutic discovery.
