Servatus Ltd Moves offices to the University of the Sunshine Coast
April 2017 saw Servatus Ltd relocating to the University of the Sunshine Coast, with laboratories set up on the university campus and offices just minutes away in the renowned Innovation Centre. Located in one of the country's fastest growing regions, the University of the Sunshine Coast campus at Sippy Downs has grown to accommodate more than 10,000 students since opening in 1996.
“We have found USC very progressive in its thinking and very willing to accommodate industry linkages that will benefit both.” said Managing Director Dr Wayne Finlayson. Servatus look forward to developing and strengthening the relationship with the University and its students furthermore over time.
For Servatus, the construction of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital and the establishment of the clinical trials department at the University paves a pathway for ground-breaking opportunities in research directed at selectively improving specific characteristics of existing therapeutic proteins to enhance their clinical utility.
The Sunshine Coast area is expanding rapidly and offers a balance of lifestyle and innovation, as well as reduced costs of living in contrast to major cities. Located only an hour away from the State’s capital city of Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast has been affectionately known as the Silicon Valley of Australia. Servatus aims to launch projects in the near future, providing the university with employment opportunities for local graduates.
