Have you heard of the Australian National Fabrication Facility – Queensland Node (ANFF-Q)? Did you know that ANFF is advancing medical therapies by conducting ground-breaking scientific research on the bio-nano interface?

Join us to tour this incredible scientific resource, right here on UQ’s St Lucia campus. 

You will receive an overview of the research being conducted at the Australian National Fabrication Facility’s Queensland Node (ANFF-Q). Including:

  • The development of a 10-minute universal cancer test
  • A ‘smart’ gene delivery system that directs cardiac tissue to self-heal after a heart attack, and
  • A tissue culture device that enables the growth of cardiac, skeletal muscle, and neural organoids for use in researching new therapies without the need for human subjects.

You will also hear from ANFF-Q technical staff and the researchers who are performing this ground-breaking research.

During the tour participants may be required to stand for up to one hour. After the tour, participants may walk or bus back to Women’s College (lunch available for additional cost).
