La Trobe Institute for Molecular Sciences

Launched in 2009, LIMS brings together the University’s leading scientists to create new levels of collaboration, and a multi-disciplinary approach to drive innovation and produce translatable research outcomes.

The LIMS complex has 56 research and support laboratories, advanced research equipment, a 200-seat auditorium, and over 3,000 square metres of teaching facilities. Around 400 La Trobe academics, research fellows, postgraduate students and support staff are based at the Institute. LIMS also has an important regional node: many of its scientists work at La Trobe’s Bendigo campus.
