miCF Research Centre ®

Welcome to the Molecular and Integrative Cystic Fibrosis (miCF) Research Centre ®.  Our lab is interested in understanding the cellular and molecular processes involved in the regulation of epithelial cell biology and how the breakdown of this regulation leads to pathogenesis of disease such as Cystic Fibrosis.

We are based at the Westfield Research Laboratories at the Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick. We have a range of specialised equipment to facilitate our research efforts such as digital and confocal microscopy and multiple ultra-freezers that are used for biobanking services. The lab is well-equipped and configured to support a wide range of experiments making it possible to perform cytogenetic, epigenetics, and molecular and cell biology research.

We have access to world class genomics and proteomics facilities based at UNSW Kensington, who assist us with all our sequencing and mass spectrometry needs. We also have a strong affiliation and collaboration with the Drug Discovery Centre at the Children's Cancer Institute of Australia, where we test and develop our new small molecule therapies.
