Compounds Australia has been awarded a $2 million Australia Cancer Research Foundation grant to enable a transformative compound management platform within the new ACRF Centre for Compound Management and Logistics at Compounds Australia.
This project will support establishing a transformative acoustic compound management platform, with specialised integrated software, within the compound management facility and will enable Australian cancer researchers’ access to the most advanced compound management capability available, thus accelerating cancer target validation and drug discovery efforts nationally.
The new ACRF Centre for Compound Management and Logistics was championed by Professor Vicky Avery (Griffith University), Professor Ross Hannan (ANU), Associate Professor Kaylene Simpson (Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre), Professor Ross McKinnon (Flinders University) and Professor Kum Kum Khanna (QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute), all of whom are current users of Compound Australia’s research services. They were supported at the interview by the Griffith University Pro Vice Chancelor for Sciences, Professor Andrew Smith, and Moana Simpson, Manager Compounds Australia.
Many thanks to this supportive team for their time, effort and confidence in Compounds Australia.
