In April–May 2013, LDI moved all its facilities and offices to the $175 million dollar, purpose-built, New Horizons biomedical manufacturing, research and teaching centre.
The New Horizons Centre is a joint venture building to co-locate and integrate up to 300 Monash staff (representative of Australia's largest university) and 150 researchers from the CSIRO (representative of Australia's largest publicallly funded research organisation) in the engineering precinct of the Monash University Clayton campus, with the aim to transform manufacturing in the areas of biomedicine, transport, aerospace and mineral processing. The goal of such a centre will be to create a globally significant scope and connectedness, in an interactive space with an entrepreneurial culture that will facilitate greater linkages with business and the community.
New Horizons will also be perfect to allow for the efficient use of major facilities already located in the Precinct, such as the Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy, the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication, the Australian Synchrotron, the Monash Istitute of Medical Research, and the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute.
