About us

The National Drug Discovery Centre (NDDC) is an initiative of the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute and offers Australian medical researchers access to a fully staffed facility with drug screening expertise and the latest in robotic high-throughput technologies. 

Government and philanthropic funding

Support from the Australian and Victorian Governments has enabled the expansion of the NDDC, and subsidises the cost of access for Australian researchers.

This funding builds upon the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute’s own $32 million investment, as well as previous Victorian Government support and generous donations from AWM Electrical, Mr Mike Fitzpatrick AO and Ms Helen Sykes.
