The Australian National Phenome Centre (ANPC) is the first of its kind in the nation, offering high-throughput, small molecule analysis in targeted and exploratory metabolic phenotyping in health, agriculture and biodiversity. Metabolic phenotyping provides a readout of the metabolic state of an organism and is the product of its genetic and environmental contributions. Through spectroscopic techniques such as Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry, metabolic phenotyping enables scientists to examine the dynamic interactions between genes, environments, microbiomes, diets and lifestyles, and their impacts on diseases.
The ANPC is one of the three core pillars of Murdoch's research and innovation strengths, driven by the overall aim to provide life-changing solutions to complex world challenges. The ANPC is currently located in Murdoch University's South Street campus, with its future location to be the Harry Perkins Institute for Medical Research at Fiona Stanley Hospital. Come along and get a close-up view and a better understanding of the ANPC's cutting edge research. Please note that no lunch or refreshments will be provided during this session.
