New laboratory to support  translational research

On Level 4 of the UNSW’s spaces within the Acute Services Building (ASB) extension, a new laboratory will support translational research – from basic and pre-clinical studies through to patient care.

Located on the same floor as the ASB’s aged care rehabilitation and acute aged care spaces, as well as the haematology and oncology units, the new laboratory will support the integration of research activity with clinical care.

In this lab, researchers might focus on activities like advanced tissue engineering, printing of biomaterials and use of novel technologies for therapeutic interventions.

The space will also provide opportunities for collaboration with industry partners sharing similar goals to the health precinct.
With internal fit-out almost complete, the UNSW spaces are set to become operational from mid-2024.
