Cell therapy manufacturing CRC opens in Adelaide

A national biotechnology centre to develop advanced methods of treating diabetes, wounds and transplant patients has opened at the University of South Australia.

The $59-million Cooperative Research Centre for Cell Therapy Manufacturing will use cell-based therapy and medical “smart materials” such as molecular nanotechnologies to repair damaged organs and tissues.

The centre, based at the university’s Mawson Lakes campus, was one of the successful bids in the 2012 CRC selection round for federal funding. It will bring together materials scientists, bioprocess engineers, cell biologists and industries with expertise in medical smart materials manufacture.
