AIB Labs Hosts Victorian Biotech Delegation
AIB Labs hosted a delegation of representatives from the Victorian Platform Technology Network (VPTN).
The VPTN is a network of biomedical research facilities that provide state-of-the-art infrastructure and expertise to the biomedical, health and biotech research sector in Victoria, throughout Australia and around the world. The VPTN is coordinated by The Bio21 Cluster and Monash University with funding provided by the Victorian State Government.
VPTN Node Managers Karen Clarke and Gerard Gibbs were accompanied on their trip on 19 June by Caroline Laverty (Monash Antibody Technologies Facility), Zofia Felton (Metabolomics Australia) and Vivien Vasic (MHTP Medical Genomics Facility).
All VPTN delegates gave well received presentations to a meeting of 20 AIB Labs facility managers. The delegates also visited some of the AIB Labs facilities including the Wark™ Biotechnology Materials Characterisation and Microfluidics Facility and the new SA Health and Medical Research Insitute’s Preclinical, Imaging and Research Labs.
It is intended that AIB Labs will continue to foster a close relationship with the VPTN for the benefit of researchers across Australia.
