About our Centre

CDBS is located at Central Campus and Little France Campus and its research consists of a broad variety of disciplines and cutting edge techniques.


We research fundamental physiological mechanisms and pathways, from single genes to complex behaviour, relevant to normal human function and how disruption of these mechanisms lead to disease.
