Developing novel nano-tools to better understand the brain

guozhen_liu11 November 2016:

Understanding how the brain works is one of the greatest challenges of modern science – A challenge that CNBP Research Fellow Guozhen Liu is certainly up to!

She has recently been awarded an ARC Future Fellowship commencing in 2017 and will work on the creation of a suite of novel biomolecular nano-formulations capable of adaptive responses to the rapidly evolving environment inside of the body.

Coverage: Tiny gemstones advance nanoscale imaging

Low Res Edit 010620 July 2016:

A research team at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP) – led by Dr Philipp Reineck (pictured) from RMIT University’s School of Science – tested ruby and diamond particles, more than a thousand times smaller than the diameter of a hair, alongside other nanoparticles for use in biological imaging, and found that they have a higher degree of stability, critical to achieving imaging success. You can read more about it in the online publication ‘Science meets Business’.

Science, beauty, and the art of asking questions

High Res Edit 00896 May 2016:

Good science is simply the art of asking really good questions said CNBP Chief Investigator Prof Tanya Monro, in a motivating TEDx talk that took place in Adelaide, May 6th, 2016.

Tanya’s talk, titled “Science, beauty, childhood and the art of asking questions” explained how science and mathematics can help explain everything from the expansion of our universe to the workings of the world’s subatomic particles, to even broadening our understanding of beauty.
