Health Security Systems

The Health Security Systems Australia team is building sovereign industrial and research capabilities for Australia, aligned to national health security priorities.

This is achieved by

  • Leading collaborative teams to harness expertise from diverse research and industry partner groups to steward applied research and technology development from promising concepts to maturity; and
