AgriBio accommodates over 400 staff from the Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DPI) and La Trobe University (La Trobe), including scientists, students, and business and science-support staff.

The facility consolidates all of DPI’s geographically dispersed metropolitan-based Biosciences Research staff, with a small group of staff who have expertise in plant physiology and food science.

AgrBio also houses La Trobe's existing biosciences staff in plant and animal genomics, plant pathology, animal health and agricultural sustainability, predominantly within the Faculty of Science, Technology and Engineering’s School of Life Sciences.

To facilitate collaboration, La Trobe and DPI have made a number of joint appointments.
