Adelaide Science Building At Leading Edge

Sunday, 15 October, 2000

A building which will support research and education in science, was opened at Adelaide University by Australian scientist Sir Gustav Nossal.

The $18 million Molecular Life Sciences Building will be home to the Department of Molecular Biosciences, a department which will bring together staff and students from the disciplines of biochemistry, genetics, microbiology and immunology. It will accommodate more than 30 research teams engaged in a range of work including stem cell replacement, vaccines and the Special Research Centre for the Molecular Genetics of Development. Research across a wide range of the biological sciences will also include work in wine, food, nutrition, medicine and the environment.

Adelaide University will also continue to pioneer development and commercialisation of biotechnological research with two spin-off companies: BresaGen and GroPep which have floated on the Australian Stock Exchange.

The Department hopes to make a contribution to Australia's future through commercial applications of scientific advances.
