ICNT is a multi-disciplinary, internationally-competitive and well-funded Centre whose research focuses on developing novel, long-acting biotherapeutics for chronic pain. Recent advances include generation of potent and selective protein inhibitors of neuroexocytosis that give prolonged relief of neuropathic pain in rodents. These unique and promising recombinant anti-nociceptives are to be produced in a new ‘state-of-the-art’ GMP facility for evaluation in man.
Now that the GMP facility is constructed and functional, the post is required for hands-on, long term operation of the facility for future production of GMP grade therapeutics.
