Garvan-Weizmann partnership building up

Date: Sunday, March 26, 2017

Construction of the Garvan-Weizmann Centre of Cellular Genomics in Sydney, Australia, is on track, and the Centre is set to open later this year.


The Garvan-Weizmann partnership will involve a staff and student exchange; the use of sophisticated tools to investigate immunological responses in complex diseases; and cellular genome sequencing for clinical purposes. The center is located at the Kinghorn Cancer Centre at the Garvan Institute. Studies by Institute scientists Prof. Ido Amit (Department of Immunology) and Prof. Yardena Samuels (Department of Molecular Cell Biology) are among the first collaborations with Garvan colleagues.
