6 November, 2015
Mark Hutchinson, CNBP Director, attended the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) Combined Biophysics and Human Performance Program Review that took place on 2-6 Nov 2015.
The Program Review was hosted by the USAF School of Aerospace Medicine detachment at Fort Sam Houston.
It served as an excellent opportunity to learn the basic research funded by the USAF as well as to explore collaborative opportunities with DOD program managers and researchers.
27 June 2015:
Associate Investigator Dr Yiqing Lu and PhD student Mr Xianlin Zheng were CNBP attendees at CYTO 2015 – the 30th Congress of the International Society for Advancement of Cytometry held in Glasgow, June 26-30, 2015.
Oral presentations were given by both – ‘A Multifunction Workstation Underpinning Lanthanide-Based Luminescence Techniques’ by Dr Lu and ‘Precise Pinpointing of Luminescent Targets Empowers Quantitative Scanning Cytometry’ by Mr Zheng.
Dr Lu was also on the program committee.
While in the UK, both researchers took the time to visit CNBP Partner Prof Tong Sun at City University London, as well as Prof Klaus Suhling at King’s College London and Prof Peter Sadler at the University of Warwick.
10 February 2015: International Engagement:
Thanks to all of our friends who attended the CNBP workshop at SPIE West. CNBP Director Mark Hutchinson and Deputy Director Ewa Goldys were delighted to see over 100 attendees and look forward to continuing conversations over the coming months.
More information about the workshop will be found on the CNBP events page soon
12 December 2014: They just could not stop talking!
Finishing 2014 on a high note the Macquarie CNBP node organized a CNBP-themed MQ BioFocus Research Conference on 10 December.
An ECR-led Conference Committee comprising Dr Wei Deng, Ms K. Drozdowicz-Tomsia, and Dr Varun Sreenivasan put together an exciting program of talks and posters, covering disciplines from medicine to laser physics.
Rarely have we seen more lively discussions!
The meeting was attended by 70 staff and students from CNBP and Macquarie MQ BioFocus Research Centre led by Professor Ewa Goldys (Deputy Director, CNBP).
CNBP Associate Investigators (pictured above) A/Prof Igor Aharonovich (right) and Andrei Zvyagin (left) have presented their research.
MQ BioFocus Research Centre was established in 2010 and it laid the foundation for the CNBP node at Macquarie.
7 December 2014: Upcoming event
The Macquarie BioFocus Research Centre is organising a conference in bringing together academics from Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Medicine from within Macquarie and other local institutions.
See http://biofocus.science.mq.edu.au/eventsandnews/events/2014-conference/ for details.
Registration is free, and all are welcome to attend.
12 December 2014: Upcoming Workshop
A half-day satellite workshop on Friday 12th December 2014 at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia will follow the international ASCEPT-MPGPCR meeting.
The aim of this workshop is to introduce the interdisciplinary approaches adopted by physicists, chemists and biologists to address fundamental and novel biological questions. Key cutting-edge technologies exclusive to the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics will be described along with examples of current and potential applications. This workshop is an excellent forum to discuss the impact of these cutting edge technologies on your research with CNBP researchers, who can then facilitate future collaborations.
Thanks to CNBP Researcher Dr Sanam Mustafa for organising this workshop

30 November 2014 : Engaging with other researchers
On 28th-30th November, the Mt Lofty Workshop on Frontier Technologies for Nervous System Function and Repair was hosted at Mt Lofty House in the beautiful Adelaide Hills. The workshop included three sessions: (1) Neural Technologies (2) Neuroprotection and Neurorepair and (3) Nanoscale Biophotonics.
With a program than included national and international speakers, the Nanoscale BioPhotonics session highlighted the transdisciplinary approach CNBP is adopting to answer novel biological questions.
This workshop is considered a boutique and exciting meeting. The meeting had diverse speakers and engaging discussions.
