Loco for confoco! Visitors to RMIT

Hannah-Brown21 April 2015: Visitors from UoA and MQ to RMIT:

The confocal microscope at RMIT has been the object of several visits lately, most notably Hannah Brown (April 16 & 17), a researcher from University of Adelaide, and Ishan Rastogi (April 20-25), a PhD student from Macquarie University.

Hannah was kind enough to give an introductory presentation about epigenetics to the RMIT team, and used the microscope to investigate some fixed cells that she brought with her.

Ishan also brought some samples with him, but with less focus on the biological side – he is in the process of benchmarking the flourescence of nanodiamonds.
