About Monash Research Platforms


Monash University research platforms are an incredible resource available to our research community, collaborators and industry partners, both locally in Melbourne and around the world.

We differentiate ourselves with the breadth and the quality of our platforms. With over 25 platforms in operation, we have capabilities to take your project from discovery right through to translation and commercialisation.

Monash has made significant investments in research infrastructure, very frequently matched by funding and investments from government and other funding schemes.

All our platforms are backed by teams of in-house expertise to support our researchers and partners in your work.

Our philosophy is to operate platforms to world’s best practice standards, including good governance, oversight and management, it means we can support the very best research outcomes and impact.

Acknowledgement of Platforms

It is important that the impact of Monash Research Platforms is able to be recognised and quantified. To that end, we strongly encourage researchers to acknowledge any and all Monash research platforms utilized in the course of a study, in any publications or research outputs arising from that study.

Access Monash Research Platforms


If you are a Monash Employee or Student you are able to use your Monash authentication to log in. 


If you are an employee or student working at the HUDSON INSTITUTE please sign up or login via the Monash tab but please use your HUDSON EMAIL ADDRESS to login. This is important to avoid getting a login error

The ARMI AquaCore facility is the largest zebrafish facility of its kind in the southern hemisphere, consisting of 1000 quarantine tanks and 5200 main facility tanks (non quarantine). It houses genetically modified and mutant strains of zebrafish to model a variety of human diseases and conditions. Additional services include a sperm freezing and rederivation service for any long term storage requirements. AquaCore is also currently running a pilot system to house axolotl and shark embryos for research, with the intention of developing larger scale facilities in the future.
