CNBP dementia research given new funding boost

Bing-yang-shi27 October 2015:

In October 2015, CNBP researcher Dr Bingyang Shi, was awarded more than $571,000 in National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) – Australian Research Council (ARC) Career Development Fellowships.

Says Bingyang, “I aspire to make important contributions to medical and public health based on my unique and sought-after set of knowledge and skills across the intersection of neuroscience, biomedicine, cell biology and material chemistry.”

“This Fellowship will allow me to translate my knowledge towards applications of multifunctional for brain disease theranostics, provide a stepping-stone for me towards becoming an independent research group leader in biomedical research, and to build up the robust and productive collaborations with other CNBP researchers.”

“I strongly believe that the success of this fellowship project will significantly contribute towards translational discoveries in brain research, ultimately benefiting the health and wellbeing of dementia patients in Australia.”

This research topic is aligned with the CNBP Theme: “Recognize”, and the Biological challenge 2: “Origin of Sensation”.
