Fluorescence Applications In Biotechnology And Life Sciences (FABLS)

Funding: 2005: $9,560

Project Member(s): Harry, E., Phillips, M.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Research Networks commencing in 2004)

Start year: 2005

Summary: This Network will concentrate Australian research in new applications of fluorescence to biological systems to solve significant problems in health diagnostics, biotechnology and the environment. The scientific goals identified by the Network such as highly selective fluorescent labelling and purpose-engineered fluorochromes will be accompanied by the development of specialised instrumentation. These research directions pursued by strong multi-disciplinary teams spanning biology, chemistry, physics, bioengineering and medicine will benefit from the support of the Network programs. Through its focus on academic - industry collaboration the Network will also facilitate development of basic scientific discoveries into commercial outcomes.
