Do you need access to some of our brilliant minds to propel your idea to the next phase of development? Or would you like to make use of our cutting-edge technology platforms?
Through successful partnerships we have been able to translate our research into tangible outcomes, positively impacting people and communities around the world. We aim is to continue making a difference by fostering strong collaborations which starts by connecting you to our people and platforms.
Take a look at our research capabilities, grouped in nine themes, aligned with national and international health priorities and reflecting our combined strengths across partner organisations.
As Australia's largest university, we are a gateway to outstanding researchers, many of whom are also doctors and leading clinicians renowned globally for their work. In our Monash Expert Database you can find academic experts by Name, Department or Topic.
Monash University is home to a range of world-leading facilities and technologies that you can get access to. Here are two examples of platforms used by our staff and their collaborators from industry, government and other research organisations.
The Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) FishCore facility is the largest zebrafish facility of its kind in the southern hemisphere, consisting of 1000 quarantine tanks and 5200 main facility tanks (non quarantine). It houses genetically modified and mutant strains of zebrafish that model a variety of human diseases and conditions. By observing developing cells in zebrafish our researchers at ARMI have recently unlocked a mechanism that triggers stem cell production in blood, making the production of blood cells in the laboratory an achievable end goal.

Monash Biomedical Imaging (MBI)
Monash Biomedical Imaging (MBI) is a Monash University-led Technology Research Platform providing world class imaging facilities for clinical and pre-clinical research. The team working for ASPirin in Reducing Events in the Elderly (ASPREE), an international collaborative project led by Monash University are using the MBI facility to determine the relationship between the presence of white matter lesions and/or changes in small blood vessels of the brain and whether that puts older people at risk of having a stroke or developing dementia in the future.
