Working with CNBP Industry and Research Partners to create disruptive new technologies

Australia is home to many new innovations and technologies.

We aim to add to that proud reputation - and to bring our fellow Australians on this journey, engaging them in science that will play an important part in building our economic future. 

CNBP Researchers are focused on using the Centre to pioneer the fundamental science required to facilitate translational outcomes. This cannot be done as an afterthought of research. CNBP researchers are encouraged to build translational thinking, and strategy into all projects.  This will help to create an outcome based culture - that celebrates and nurtures innovation.

In this way we will drive the science in directions that will create opportunities for economic and societal benefits as well as attracting to the Centre researchers seeking to make a difference.

The CNBP will nurture our most precious resource, young Australian researchers, to gain a first rate scientific education and research experience, both in Australia's leading laboratories and those of our international and industry partners.

To find out more about partnering with CNBP please contact our Business Manager Mrs Melodee Trebilcock.
