Adelaide centre will shed new light on disease

Medical technologies using light and optical fibres to measure the human body’s health at a cellular level will be developed at a $38-million research centre based at the University of Adelaide.

The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics brings together physicists, biologists and chemists from universities in Australia, China, Canada and the UK to explore ways of using light as a medical diagnostic tool. The centre will be led by UA with leading researchers from Macquarie University in Sydney and the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Victoria.

Launching the ARC Centre of Excellence in Adelaide on 21 November, its director Mark Hutchinson said it would “create new windows” into the human body.
