Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery (GRIDD)

Australian drug discovery research centre

Researchers at the Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery (GRIDD) search for, and develop, new drug- and cell-based therapies in areas such as:

  • Cancer
  • Infectious diseases
  • Neurological diseases
  • Global health

GRIDD research is supported by the unique Nature Bank resource, an integrated drug discovery platform encompassing a library of over 50,000 optimised natural product fractions derived from a diverse collection of over 45,000 samples of plants and marine invertebrates.

GRIDD is also home to Compounds Australia, an automated library of nearly 400,000 pure compounds from Australian chemists for collaborations with international and national biologists.
