About the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI): Monash University, the Victorian State Government and the Australian Commonwealth Government are investing over $AUD150m in ARMI, a new research institute for regenerative medicine, focused on unraveling basic mechanisms of the regenerative process and developing clinical applications.
Situated on the Monash University Clayton campus in Melbourne, ARMI is a research Institute within the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences. Working with multiple centres and disciplines at Monash University and the neighboring institutes and medical centres, ARMI is laying the groundwork for the development of future therapeutic approaches to traumatic injury and degenerative disease, and will pursue rapid commercial transfer for its technologies.
ARMI research groups are located in new, state-of-the-art laboratories with well equipped common facilities creating a framework for a creative, interdisciplinary and highly interactive environment. A key objective of ARMI is to enhance the field of regenerative medicine by promoting the career opportunities for young scientists. As the headquarters of the European Molecular Biology Laboratories (EMBL) Australia Partner Laboratory, ARMI will also include at least 6 groups operated according to the EMBL research model and philosophy.
