Maurice Wilkins Centre for Molecular Biodiscovery
The Maurice Wilkins Centre brings together leading biologists, chemists, and computer scientists to target serious disease.
The Wilkins Centre includes researchers with world-class reputations for inventing new drugs and vaccines targeting cancer, diabetes, and infectious disease, as well as new tools to help basic research and clinical medicine, including sophisticated software for medical use. In bringing together a national network of scientists and doctors from a wide range of backgrounds, the Centre sponsors cutting-edge research that would not otherwise have happened. This intense research environment provides an outstanding training ground for the next generation of leaders in New Zealand biomedical science.
The Wilkins Centre also provides world-class research infrastructure to its researchers, including both cutting-edge equipment and highly specialised technical training, often with international partners.
