ATP Science Pty Ltd and Research Fellow Dr Miaomiao Liu from the Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery have been awarded the Griffith Sciences Industry Collaborative Grant aimed at developing collaborations with industry partners/end-users.
Both ATP Science and Griffith University (GU) will work together to develop a novel plant extraction process and analyte detection methodology.
“ATP Science is optimistic that the collaboration between GU and ATP Science will provide synergistic outcomes for both parties in terms of knowledge and real-world applications that improve education, research and commercialisation,” said Jeff Doidge, ATP Science Managing Director and Co-Founder.
Dr Liu will be working with ATP Science for the next 12 months under the mentorship of her scientific supervisor Prof Ron Quinn, AM, who is a world-renowned expert in natural products and medicinal chemistry.
“The collaboration with GU perfectly aligns with our core values to put traditional health medicine and science together to advance humanity. It’s not East verses West, it is all about using science to understand and improve solutions to help people in all walks of life, from disease to performance,” said Jeff Doidge.
ATP Science believes that the research collaboration with Griffith University will specifically yield new knowledge in novel plant extracts that can be incorporated into new and existing ATP Science supplement products to enhance the nutritional value delivered to clients and end-users of the products.
