The Australian Centre for NanoMedicine (ACN) combines Medicine, Science and Engineering to deliver therapeutic solutions to research problems in medicine. ACN is a hub for nanomedicine research in Australia and through a commitment to research, education, knowledge transfer and commercialisation, ACN is dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis and curing of diseases, especially hard to treat diseases.
By taking the expertise that has been established across UNSW disciplines, ACN is a translational research centre based on a multidisciplinary approach that undertakes basic, clinical and institutional technological research. This research is directed at increasing capabilities in specific disease focused programs by bringing biological scientists and nanotechnologists together to encourage collaboration and development of new technologies.
Our vision is to merge nanoscale science and engineering with medicine to yield fundamental and translational impact to advance human health.
Our mission is to discover and translate cutting edge nanodiagnostics and nanotherapeutics.
Our purpose is to advance clinical impact and human health.
The Australian Centre for NanoMedicine (ACN) was established in mid-2011 as a national innovator in NanoMedicine, bringing together a diverse team of leading researchers in Medicine, Science and Engineering to deliver the next generation of health innovations.
