Research with impact
Every day, MIPS researchers dedicate their time to investigating and designing better medicines. Our research is changing lives, not just in Australia but around the world.
Our many successes are the result of our collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to research excellence, our better drugs by design philosophy and our determination to make a difference to the broad community we serve.
