Bond medical laboratories undergo major refurbishment

Renovations of the medical science and research laboratories at Bond University have recently commenced.  Level 4 of the Health Sciences & Medicine building will undergo a complete refurbishment over two stages, with each stage estimated to take approximately 10 weeks to complete.

The refurbishment is a mark of the continued growth of the health, medicine, sports and research disciplines led by the Faculty of Health Sciences & Medicine that also include the launch of three new postgraduate programs, the recent purchase of the Bond Institute of Health Sport (BIHS), as well as the $14 million grant for the Collaborative Research Network (CRN) for Advancing Exercise and Sports Science.

“The newly refurbished space will double in size, increasing much needed teaching and research capacity” says John Leggett, Laboratory Manager.

“This refurbished facility underpins the Faculty’s commitment to cutting edge research, and for our students to enjoy extensive use of the latest equipment and access to researchers who are committed to developing innovative research that contributes to ‘new thinking’ on a regional, national and global scale.”

“Due to our intimate cohorts, our students and research students will have improved access outside their scheduled hours to master their technical scientific and research skills.”

Bond University administers numerous research projects in collaboration with various levels of government and other providers from multiple sclerosis, immunology and stem cell research, through to sports science.
