Project Brief:


The new 2,600sqm facility is connected to the existing Chemistry building in Lensfield Road on the south side.  It will house the Centre for Protein Misfolding Diseases, a Chemistry of Health Incubator, and the Molecular Production and Characterisation Centre.

These facilities will not only enable fundamental discoveries in the molecular processes underlying human disease, but also promote their translation into clinical and commercial applications.

The four-storey building will provide space for the study of neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
