Management

The VBIC will operate under a Collaboration Agreement, forming the basis for umbrella collaborative agreements between all member organisations. There are five geographically distinct nodes:

The VBIC Coordination Committee (VBIC CC) is supported by the VBIC Coordinator and comprises representatives from each node. The goals of the VBIC CC are to:

  • Austin (primarily run by the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health)
  • Clayton (primarily run by Monash Biomedical Imaging)
  • Parkville/Werribee (primarily run by the University of Melbourne)
  • Hawthorn (primarily run by Swinburne University of Technology)
  • Olivia Newton John Cancer Research Institute and La Trobe University
  • Enhance excellence in biomedical research by provision of cutting-edge imaging capabilities
  • Pursue additional investment in Victorian biomedical imaging research and infrastructure
  • Develop human capital to support the applications of biomedical imaging modalities
  • Increase the development of diagnostics and treatments for adoption in clinical practice

Collaboration

The VBIC network enables participants to work with the Victorian State Government as the leading industry group for biomedical imaging research and development in Victoria. The Capability operates in a collaborative structure to establish the processes and forums necessary to optimise the use of imaging resources in Victoria.

Funding

The Victorian Biomedical Imaging Capability is a Victoria’s Science Agenda Strategic Project Fund project.

It represents an investment of over $24M, comprising $8.6M of State Government funds and $16.3M in cash and in kind from the foundation partners, to improve the capacity and capability of biomedical imaging in Victoria.

Partners

Although not part of the collaborative or funding agreements, the following organisations play a significant role at one or more of the VBIC nodes:
