ALERT: $100 million scientific research centre to be launched this week

The La Trobe Institute of Molecular Science (LIMS) will officially launch
their new research facility on Friday 15 February, a centre that will
continue to grow the University¹s world-class research in molecular science,
biotechnology and nanotechnology.
 
The $100 million complex includes the iconic LIMS building, a stunning
six-storey, molecular sciences research hub with 34 research and support
laboratories nestled in the heart of the Melbourne campus.
 
LIMS has a number of key aims, including a commitment to research that will
help solve global problems relating to human health and food security. LIMS
also aims to attract international researchers, to train the next generation
of scientists, and to inspire school age students to pursue a career in
science.
 
The project is the outcome of generous support from the Commonwealth
Government, and La Trobe University funds. The building has been
innovatively designed by Lyons Architects.
 
Media are invited to the opening of the LIMS building, to be held at 10am on
Friday 15 February. Tours of the building can be arranged on request between
9 and 10am. The date and all details about the launch are under strict
embargo.
