Working with Amyris and the Queensland Government
Microbial strains are both literally and figuratively the catalysts required for the conversion of Queensland’s naturally advantaged raw materials and location near Asian markets into a $1bn bio-manufacturing industry
Working with Zoetis
Through a linkage grant, we were helping Zoetis develop better vaccines for clostridial diseases.
Brewing natural products with yeast
We are replicating the biosynthesis of natural products in Baker's yeast to produce renewable versions of rare active ingredients for cosmetics, medicines and food supplements. This biotechnological approach overcomes the limited availability of these high-quality products and provides a sustainable alternative to the overexploitation of natural sources.
Sustainable Carbon with Lanzatech
We designed our cell factories to consume greenhouse gases and recycle carbon.
Inspired by a sustainable future we are working on Biological systems capable of consuming C1 feedstocks for sustainable carbon.
Working with Dow
Working with Dow to make sustainable propionic acid using biological systems
Working with Dow AgroSciences
Helping Dow AgroScience develop a systems biology platform for organic biopesticides.
Working with Servatus
To help them develop microbial Biotherapeutics
for the treatment of a variety of inflammatory conditions and bacterial infections
Working with Plant Extracts
To enable the thorough characterization of native Australian plant extracts.
EnzOnomy is an innovative technology for cell-free and cell-based enzyme-driven biotransformations for industrial applications
Microbial bioplastic production
Plastic waste accumulation poses a global challenge. We work with the Evolve Group to produce biodegradable and recyclable biopolymers via microbial fermentation tailored for a circular plastic economy.
Fostering opportunities for HDR candidates and postdoctoral fellows to pursue industrial training
We support career opportunities by providing students and staff with the opportunity to undertake industry placement.
Driving growth, productivity, and competitiveness by linking to key growth sectors
