Centre of Molecular Pathology

Welcome to the Centre for Molecular Pathology

The University of Adelaide approved the formation of the Centre for Molecular Pathology (CMP) in 2012. The CMP is 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 is 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.

moleculesThe CMP brings 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.
