UNSW’s Single Molecule Science initiative focuses on transforming medicine by providing a molecular perspective on complex biological systems and processes, encompassing biophysics, biochemistry and cell biology as well as nanotechnology and nanofabrication.
This work is underpinned by the new imaging and analysis technologies being developed by Professor Katharina Gaus, head of the EMBL Australia node of Single Molecule Science at UNSW's Lowy Cancer Research Centre and Deputy Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Advanced Molecular Imaging.
- Unique microscopy capabilities in super-resolution and single molecule imaging, developed by the ARC Centre of Excellence in Advanced Molecular Imaging and supported by the Biomedical Imaging Facility
- nanofabrication at the Australian National Fabrication Facility
- drug development at the Australian Cancer Research Foundation Drug Discovery Centre
- genomics at the Ramaciotti Centre
- proteomics at the Bioanalytical Mass Spectrometry Facility
- animal models from Australian BioResources
- the Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre.
