The NPC is happy to welcome the Australian Metabolic Phenotyping Centre (AMPC) to the international community of phenome centres.
Located in Western Australia, the AMPC is an international research node dedicated to developing and delivering metabolic phenotyping services to benefit the global population. The AMPC is the nation’s first phenome hub. It is affiliated with the International Phenome Centre Network (IPCN) and shares an interest in building a global infrastructure around harmonised research information, data, methods and technologies. A key part of the initiative is the harmonisation of instruments between the network members, ensuring that samples can be run anywhere in the world and the results will be the same. The network will enable database sharing and big data mining with other health and research institutions.
The AMPC is a core platform of the WAHTN. It involves collaborations between all WAHTN partners, including the five Universities in WA, the WA health research institutes, and the WA health department.
