Our Vision

No Australian biota is threatened by Phytophthora.

Our Mission

Through a coordinated program of management and research, and in partnership with industry, government and community, the Centre will provide science, management and training to underpin the amelioration of the threats posed by Phytophthora.

Our Goals

  • Develop a cost-effective, efficient method for control of spread and impact of Phytophthora cinnamomi.
  • Develop technologies for biodiversity conservation, and ecosystem restoration for threatened species recovery.
  • Develop technologies for cost-effective detection and mapping.
  • Provide excellence in research leadership, training, consulting and extension.
