Profile of the Adelaide Centre for the Molecular Genetics of Development

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Centre for the Molecular Genetics of Development (CMGD)
was established in 2000 at the University of Adelaide through
the Special Research Centre scheme of the Australian Research
Council. The CMGD was established to work towards a
molecular understanding of the rules and mechanisms that
govern the behaviour of cells during development. The research
centre, funded for nine years by the Australian Research Council
encompasses researchers from the University’s Departments
of Genetics and Biochemistry and leading to the employment
of new researchers. South Australia’s biotechnology industries
will be boosted by the centre’s work, which will offer
more sophisticated genetic technologies to tackle problems
ranging from stock improvement to human developmental disorders.
Research aimed at generating specific tissue types for
therapeutic use will also be an important part of the research to
be carried out by the centre.
