Project Details

Project Description

This will complete an integrated state-of -the -art vibrational spectroscopic mapping facility for the chemical mapping of hard and soft tissues, cells ,materials and minerals that will complement the infrared beamline at the Australian Synchrotron. It will enhance Australia's position at the cutting edge of research with major impacts on the design of : new drugs; green chemical processed; and new medical diagnostcs. It will also be used in the identification of: origins and evolution of life on Earth; pigments in archaeological samples; and geological processed. Outcomes will range from a fundamental nature (biochemical origins of diseases), to applied applications (catalyst design)
