The ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP) officially launched its Macquarie University Research Node, at a formal event today in Sydney.
This official launch was attended by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Bruce Dowton, a number of distinguished guests and a large contingent of CNBP researchers from all three Research Nodes, as well as members of the CNBP International Advisory Committee.
In helping launch the node, Professor Mary O’Kane, NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer said, “Physics, biomolecular sciences and nano-technology are key research strengths at Macquarie University.”
Professor Piper noted that over fifty researchers, staff and students from the University, spanning a wide range of disciplines, would contribute to CNBP activity.
Said Piper, “The technologies and tools that the team is developing will help us better understand a wide range of human related conditions and offer many opportunities for commercialisation, benefiting the Australian economy.
Also acknowledged during the event was CNBP’s industry partnership with BioPlatforms Australia.
