Metabolomics SA is housed within The Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI), is enabled through NCRIS and is funded through Bioplatforms Australia and investment from the South Australian State Government and AWRI. Opportunities for multi-disciplinary projects are facilitated through collaboration with partnered Bioplatforms South Australian Genomics Centre (SAGC) and Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics Facility.
Bioplatforms Australia is a non-profit organisation that supports Australian Life science research by investing in state-of-the-art infrastructure and expertise in genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and bioinformatics. This is made possible through investment funding provided by the Commonwealth Government National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS).
Bioplatforms Australia’s metabolomics nodes operate as Metabolomics Australia and include The University of Melbourne (Bio21 Institute), The Australian Wine Research Institute in Adelaide, Murdoch University and University of Western Australia in Perth and the University of Queensland in Brisbane.
NCRIS is a national network of world-class research infrastructure projects that support high-quality research that will drive greater innovation in the Australian research sector and the economy more broadly.
Projects support strategically important research through which Australian researchers and their international partners can address key national and global challenges.
