Discovery tours provide a unique opportunity for the community to find out more about medical research, see our state-of-the-art facilities, learn about our exciting discoveries and talk to passionate scientists about their research.
The La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science (LIMS), a La Trobe University-embedded molecular research institute, is committed to solving global problems and improving the welfare of human societies. The Institute's research is supported by a state-of-the-art facility where scientists from different disciplines work together to achieve research outcomes.
In celebration of the "Day of Immunology", we would like to invite you to join us on a public Facility Tour, where you will:
