Open to industry at the Bundoora Campus in early 2023
Providing biotechnology and agritechnology companies with fully serviced PC2 laboratories and equipment for short and long-term access.
A new hub for biotechnology innovation
Based at La Trobe’s iconic Thomas Cherry Building, the BioInnovation Hub provides start-ups and small companies with access to purpose built PC2 laboratories, currently in limited supply in Victoria, to support the commercialisation of breakthrough research. It will house a range of self-contained PC2 laboratory suites and open plan laboratory benches, shared laboratory equipment including biological safety cabinets, autoclaves, centrifuges and freezers, together with offices, hot desks, a meeting room and shared kitchen.
Partners located in the BioInnovation Hub can connect with La Trobe’s research expertise, talented students and specialist research infrastructure to further support their development and commercialisation programs.
Construction has commenced within the Thomas Cherry Building at the Bundoora Campus. Construction is expected to be completed in early 2023.
