Research centres

ARC CoE for Advanced Molecular Imaging
Developing better techniques and technologies to reveal the structure and dynamics of molecular interactions (the Imaging program), and applying these techniques to visualise the response of our immune system (the Immunology program).

Research in this area is conducted in the School of Physics.
