Research facilities and services
Our, and Macquarie University's, externally accessible research facilities and services include:
Australian Proteome Analysis Facility
The Australian Proteome Analysis Facility provides access to equipment and expertise for measurement of proteins in biological samples. This discipline of ‘proteomics’ is an important part of understanding healthy biological functions in humans, and for understanding what goes wrong with proteins in specific diseases and conditions.
Macquarie University Simulation Hub
The ‘Sim Hub’, as it is known, provides researchers with a range of different research tools in virtual reality, simulation and motion capture that support research across many disciplines. Our faculty uses the hub primarily for doing precise measurements of the biomechanics of human movements, such as walking and running, that feed into studies of physiotherapy and rehabilitation, orthopaedic implant design and surgery, and sports science.
Macquarie University Hospital and Clinics, and Macquarie Medical Imaging
Macquarie University Hospital and our outpatient clinics not only offer the highest quality of clinical care, but also support clinical research to push the boundaries of the healthcare that we offer. These clinical capabilities are complemented by the state-of-the-art imaging offered by Macquarie Medical Imaging in the hospital. These include two high-field 3 Tesla MRI scanners, a PET-CT scanner and a host of other imaging modalities – are used for clinical care and for innovative clinical research.
MQ Health Surgical Skills Centre and Anatomy Laboratory
These integrated facilities provide industry and clinicians with access to cutting-edge laboratories and expertise for development of, and training in, new surgical techniques. They provide capabilities in areas such as robotic surgery and the design and use of new types of orthopaedic implants, and they support a range of biomechanical research.
