Biomedical Research Centre
The Biomedical Research Centre is a vibrant collaborative unit of molecular biologists, biochemists, chemists, clinicians, microbiologists, parasitologists, physiologists, and cell biologists.
The multidisciplinary research focuses on the analysis of the function of cells and organs in the human body and animal systems in physiological and pathological settings, focusing on cancer, inflammation, therapeutics and drug design, infectious diseases, pharmacology, physiology, immunology, molecular diagnostics and cell biology.
It also encompasses the perturbations caused by zoonotic and pathogenic microbes on human and animal health. BRC research sits within a rapidly developing area, which underpins our understanding and treatment of diseases and is developed with our partners in hospitals to generate better therapies. We continue to work closely with regional hospitals and wider national collaborations with universities and research centres, this includes KidScan Centre for Children’s Cancer Research, which focuses on new and improved treatments and other key areas like parasitology drug action and diagnostics for malaria.
