Centre for Molecular Pathology
The University of Adelaide has approved the formation in 2012 of the Centre for Molecular Pathology (CMP) that will be a collaborative initiative involving research groups located in the University of Adelaide Faculty of Sciences and SA Pathology. Headquartered in the University's School of Molecular & Biomedical Science, the CMP will be a centre of excellence in molecular pathology research, globally recognised for its important contributions to a better understanding of the molecular basis of diseases and bacterial infections. The CMP will play a leading role in translating its research findings to reduce the burden of disease in society, and a leading role in elite post-graduate education.
The CMP will bring together high profile laboratories in molecular and cell biology, human genetics, biochemistry, microbiology and immunology, and chemistry in a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary manner, in order to develop novel technologies and share successful experiences to solve common problems in the pipeline from gene discovery to diagnosis, prevention and treatment of significant human diseases. The Centre will have a strong inter- and cross-disciplinary emphasis, being composed of researchers who have a diversity of research backgrounds including genetics, biochemistry, chemistry, microbiology, immunology, biomedicine, proteomics, bioinformatics and cell and cancer biology.
