Bioengineering live human brain tissue in a petri dish
Our laboratory has established a pre-clinical platform in vitro to facilitate the discovery and validation of treatments for brain disorders. Our research is at the frontier of human cellular neuroscience research and translational applications that benefit global public health.
SAHMRI - South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute
Our laboratory is located in the iconic South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) in Adelaide and affiliated with Flinders Health and Medical Research Institute (FHMRI) and the College of Medicine and Public Health (Flinders University).
SAHMRI is a new, vibrant medical research institute, which houses 800 international scientists. The state-of-the-art research facility and cores provide an outstanding environment for scientific discoveries. SAHMRI was listed on the top 40 of the world's best research institutes by the Times Higher Education.
The strong collaborative research community within SAHMRI, local universities and international partners fosters an exceptional environment where scientists can thrive to the best of their creativity and productivity in one of the cities ranked as the most livable in the world.
SAHMRI highly benefits from the close partnership with 3 major local universities and a total of 90,000 students: Flinders University, The University of Adelaide, The University of South Australia.
