We partner with a wide range of local and international companies to advance research across the biomedical sciences. These include partnerships with leading Pharmaceutical companies aimed at identifying new therapeutics for neurological disease, oncology and pain. We also perform contract research studies with Industry partners to test therapeutics and develop new approaches to tackle human disease.

Some of our past and ongoing partnerships include Pfizer, Takeda, Grünenthal, and CSL Behring.

We also educate undergraduate and post-graduate students in drug development and biomedical research translation. These themes provide our students with Industry-valued skills that can be used in the future workforce.
