National Imaging Facility

The National Imaging Facility (NIF) is an Unincorporated Joint Venture (UJV) that was established in 2007. It has received substantial funding through the Australian Government’s National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS), with co-funding from Australian and state government agencies and partners to the UJV to provide state-of-the-art imaging capabilities for the imaging of human, animals, plants, and materials through three main themes of:

  • Molecular Imaging and Radiochemistry;
  • Human Imaging; and
  • Animals, Plants, and Materials Imaging.

 

With a range of cutting-edge imaging technologies and highly specialized expertise, NIF develops advanced imaging solutions to drive innovation.

Featured Researcher

Dr Gary Perkins

Gary Perkins is ANSTO’s Radiochemistry Development Platform Coordinator and the National Imaging Facility Fellow at the University of Sydney/ANSTO node. Gary started at ANSTO in 2008 looking at the development of several treatment and diagnosis based drugs such as 195mPt-cisplatium. In 2010 Gary travelled to South Africa to conduct a technology transfer which resulted in a Phase Zero Clinical trial of 195mPt-cisplatium. Since then Gary has continued in the radiochemistry field investigating new production methods for new and known radiotracers particularly... Read more

The uncovered toxins in Fang Blenny fish venom could pave the way for new medications

The UQ Node of the National Imaging facility has recently helped a scientific breakthrough in the field of venom research. The 3D image of a fang blenny reef fish was produced at the Centre for Advanced Imaging using the Siemens micro CT scanner. It was part of an international study led by Professor Bryan Fry...
