Molecular Medicine Research Facility


The state-of-the-art Molecular Medicine Research Facility, located on Deakin's Waurn Ponds Campus, was opened in 2010 as a core component of a $15M Federal Government initiative. It incorporates a suite of PC2 experimental and support laboratories for high-end molecular and cellular analyses, especially in the areas of infectious disease, immunology and cancer.


The MMRF has a comprehensive suite of equipment for cell and molecular biology, microscopy and biochemistry to investigate the molecular basis of cancer, immunology and host-pathogen interactions and new approaches to therapy.
