Global BioImaging

NIF and Microscopy Australia are partners in Global BioImaging Project, which facilitates access to a global network of imaging platforms; enables exchange of experience in technology development; explores standardisation of access protocols, data formats and processing protocols. Such standardisation, together with the sharing of data, facilitates transglobal collaborative discovery projects with translation to multi-centre clinical trials.


NIF is a member to a Memorandum of Understanding with Euro-BioImaging. Euro-BioImaging is a platform for a distributed, open-access research infrastructure with a complete range of state-of-the-art technologies and training in biological, molecular and medical imaging.   

NCRIS Health Group

Health and medical researchers investigate solutions to complex problems that are often not easily solved by a single discipline. The NCRIS Health Group is aimed at enabling them collaboratively throughout the innovation and translational process. Learn more.


In addition to our Delivery Partners (‘Nodes‘), NIF runs on a co-investment model highlighting local backing for imaging research infrastructure. Co-investing in an NCRIS project provides financial partners with a cost-effective mechanism to meet their research infrastructure or broader policy implementation needs.
