The Biomolecular Frontiers Research team is a multidisciplinary network of researchers undertaking world-class research in the fields of proteomics, glycomics and genomics.

  • Our mission is the molecular analysis of biological systems.
  • Our vision is to develop, improve and apply biomolecular analysis to increase the understanding of living systems.

The Centre is embedded within the Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Sciences, Faculty of Science, at Macquarie University. We interact closely with the Australian Proteome Analysis Facility (APAF), which offers state-of-the-art research infrastructure and services.
Our objectives
