Molecular Horizons is dedicated to illuminating how life works at a molecular level and solving some of the biggest health challenges facing the world.Visit the Molecular Horizons website
UOW is very excited to partner with ANTSO to use their fantastic research infrastructure and support personnel to house our Titan electron microscope. Housing our microscope there allows us to start using the microscope for two years before the molecular horizons building will be finished on the UOW campus the electron microscope will be used by researchers who are interested in various diseases such as cancer, antimicrobial resistance and motor neuron disease and understanding how these diseases are caused at the molecular level. The Titan microscope will allow researchers to visualise the three-dimensional shape of proteins, the little machines inside our cells that can cause disease when they stop working the way they should.
UOW's molecular horizons facility will put New South Wales and in fact Australia on the map as a leader in this revolutionary science and open up unlimited possibilities for vital health-related discoveries.
