The RC-APD provides a critical mass of research expertise, skills and capabilities underpinned by state-of-the-art resources and technologies to be applied across all three Research Programs.

Adelaide Glycomics

Adelaide Glycomics is a South Australian facility for glucan analysis.


It is a partner laboratory between the University of Adelaide and Agilent Technologies Australia Pty Ltd.

Adelaide Glycomics supports fundamental and applied aspects of Glycoscience research by enabling the fine characterisation of glycans from any biological origin and at every structural level, from sugar composition to 3-dimensional organisation, reactivity, function and physico-chemical properties.

Adelaide Glycomics has a range of highly specific ‘omic’ analyses and corresponding complex data analysis.


The Surface Interactions and Soft Matter Group, Uni SA

The Surface Interactions and Soft Matter group at the Future Industries Institute (UniSA) focuses on soft and condensed matter research of relevance for the food, chemical, pharmaceutical, and mining industries.


Our expertise involves the study of foams and emulsions, particle suspensions, stability of dispersed systems, and the influence of underlying physical and chemical principles on the formulation of products.

Our capabilities include advanced spectroscopies and scattering techniques (Raman, infrared, X-ray photoelectron, and X-ray scattering), microfluidic devices, high speed video capture and image processing of bubble and droplet interactions, and detailed physical forms of nanoscopic microscopy for characterizing thin films, and the forces that underpin dispersion stability.


Adelaide Proteomics Centre

The Adelaide Proteomics Centre offers leading technologies for proteomics and protein analysis, from academia to industry, across all fields of protein science.


It is equipped to provide specialist services in mass spectrometry-based protein identification, quantitation, and characterisation of post-translational modification. All aspects of projects from experimental design and data acquisition through to data analysis and interpretation are supported, with training opportunites also available.

The Adelaide Proteomics Centre offers particular expertise in intact and native mass spectometry, protein interactions and structural proteomics.


Myeloma Research Group

Myeloma Research Group is a University of Adelaide laboratory situated at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI).


The Myeloma Research Group uses state-of-the art genomics, in vitro cell models and assays, and preclinical animal models in a diverse range of projects in the cellular metabolism and cancer fields. The scope of our projects includes the investigation of nutrient-sensing pathways in the control of glucose homeostasis and diet-induced insulin resistance, and the effects of nutrient overload on oxidative stress and inflammation.

The Myeloma Research Group has access to a broad range of resources including primary clinical samples, whole genome, transcriptome and single cell transcriptome analysis (Illumina next generation sequencers), advanced microscopy and imaging equipment (IVIS spectrum, microComputed tomography, Bruker 1176), multi-mode plate-readers, state-of-the-art flow cytometry (CyTOF), and tools for assessing metabolism (Promethion cages, EchoMRI, Seahorse XF Analyzer).
