Victorian Consortium for Cell-based Therapies (VCCT) Biological Isolator Facilities

Two biological isolator facilities have been established to facilitate clinical development of human cell-based therapies. Established under the auspices of the Victorian Consortium for Cell-based Therapies (VCCT), the isolators provide a complete barrier from environmental and operator-borne contamination and are therefore ideally suited for aseptic processing.

Stem Core

The SCA Stem Cell Core facility at the Melbourne Brain Centre provides essential services for Australian scientists using pluripotent stem cells in their research. SCA resources support bioengineering, nanotechnology, stem cell biology, advanced molecular analysis and clinical research activities

Victorian Cancer Biobank

The Victorian Cancer Biobank is a not-for-profit consortium of tissue banks, supported by the Victorian Government through the Victorian Cancer Agency. Our purpose is to provide high quality, ethically obtained biospecimens to support research that will lead to improvements in cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Victorian Brain Bank

The Victorian Brain Bank (VBB) has the function of providing Australian and International researchers with easy access to clinically and neuropathologically well-characterised post-mortem human brains and related samples.
