National Imaging Facility

The Australian National Imaging Facility (NIF) is a $130 million project that provides state-of-the-art imaging capability of animals, plants, and materials for the Australian research community. NIF’s grid of imaging facilities spreads across Australia, aiming to provide a range of leading-edge imaging instrumentation and expertise in the optimal use of imaging technology to the Australian research community.

Established in 2007, NIF is one of the four initiative projects implemented by the Australian Government, under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) Characterisation capabilities. Recently, NIF has further expanded by the Education Investment Fund (EIF), which supports world-leading, strategically-focused infrastructure investments that will transform Australian tertiary research and education.

 

 

 

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

Featured Research Projects

National network of trusted data repositories establish standard for the future

Imaging equipment such as MRI, PET and CT scanners are capable of producing vast amounts of valuable research data. In order to maximise research outcomes, data must be stored securely, have its quality verified, and should be accessible to the wider research community. Informatics fellows from around Australia have combined their expertise to build a... Read more

Imaging Data, a Treasured Asset

Micro-CT imaging data collected at CAI by National Imaging Facility (NIF) Fellow, Dr Karine Mardon, has been transformed into an interactive display as part of the 200 treasures exhibition at the Australian Museum’s newly restored Long Gallery (now Westpac Gallery). The data has been reconstructed to create a multimedia, interactive exhibit where visitors can see... Read more
