Australian Drosophila Biomedical Research Support Facility



Established with NH&MRC Enabling Grant












OzDros, the Australian Drosophila Biomedical Research Support Facility, was established at the Australian National University and currently operates at Monash University with funding from the Australian Government, through a National Health and Medical Research Council (NH&MRC) Enabling Grant.

This facility aims to lower the barriers that currently inhibit Drosophila research in Australia by providing expert, low cost support for Drosophila resesarch. We hope to increase the productivity of researchers currently using Drosophila and to encourage more researchers to include Drosophila in their experimental armoury.

IMPORTANT NOTICE - please read.

After several years operating at the Australian National University, OzDros has now moved to Melbourne.

Fly imports will now be handled through Monash University.

The stock collection has been distributed to various Drosophila groups within the Melbourne area and is available free of charge via the shopping-cart system.
