Funding Success: ARC LIEF 2018

We are pleased to announce successful ARC Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities (LIEF) funding worth $639,369 to a team from the ARC Centre of Excellence in BioNano Science, including SBL Director Professor Edmund Crampin.  The funding will support a nano-bioscience imaging facility. This project aims to investigate the interactions between nano-engineered materials and biological systems through the use of cutting-edge imaging technologies, including an ImageStreamX Imaging Flow Cytometer and a Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering Microscope. Together these will allow high throughput and label-free imaging of cell-nanomaterial interactions. 

Further details in the announcement here.

Welcome to the Systems Biology Laboratory at the University of Melbourne.

At the Systems Biology Lab we build and analyse mathematical models of biological processes, pathways and networks, and the cellular geometries within which these processes take place. We apply these models to problems in human health and physiology, including heart disease, cancer, nanomedicine, and in synthetic biology.

We are based in the School of Mathematics and Statistics and in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Melbourne.

We are also part of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Convergent Bio-Nano Science and Technology.
