Prof Goldys elected as ATSE Fellow

11 October 2017:

Fluorescence expert Ewa Goldys, Deputy Director at the CNBP and Professor at Macquarie University, has been elected as a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE).

The Fellowship recognises Professor Goldys’ pioneering research in non-invasive medical diagnostics, and her work associated with fluorescence, advanced materials and biomedicine, supporting clinicians in making improved diagnosis and health decisions for patients.

“It’s a great pleasure to be recognised with this Fellowship”, says Professor Goldys.

“The ATSE is a respected Australian body which provides informed and visionary views to decision-makers across a wide range of technology focused areas. I look forward to providing my input and advice as a member of this prestigious organisation.”

As a world leader in the study of cellular fluorescence, Professor Goldys is also a former Eureka Prize winner for her innovative use of technology. This prize was awarded for her work in developing revolutionary imaging techniques, allowing for the extraction of biomolecular information hidden in fluorescent colour signatures of living cells and tissues.

“Modern day microscopes and powerful computer analysis enables colour to be used as a uniquely powerful diagnostic tool in medicine,” she says.

“Exploring the subtle colour differentiations of cells and tissue lets us distinguish between healthy and diseased cells in areas as diverse as embryology, neurodegeneration, cancer and diabetes.”

As an ATSE Fellow, Professor Goldys will provide expertise across biomedical, nanotechnology and biophotonics areas. She will also be able to tap into the knowledge and capability of her research and industry collaborators.

“Australia needs to harness technology and innovation as part of its successful transition to a knowledge based economy,” says Professor Goldys. “This is what the ATSE mandate is all about.”

Recognising Australia’s leading minds in technology, science and engineering, the prestigious ATSE Fellowships are awarded to people who apply technology in smart, strategic ways for social, environmental and economic benefit.

Fellows advise government, industry and the community on how technology can improve the quality of life of all Australians and are drawn from academia, government, industry and research sectors.

The ATSE Fellowship announcement is accessible online from the ATSE web site.

Multi-year Fellowship announced

A multi-year Fellowship has been jointly announced by the CNBP and the American Australian Association.

The Fellowship will support an American PhD or early career Postdoctoral Fellow who wishes to conduct research at the CNBP, at any of its Australian nodes – the University of Adelaide, Macquarie University or RMIT University.

The Fellowship will support one year of research at $30,000.

Additional information is available from the American Australian Association web site.

Marie-Curie Fellowship Success

Xue Bai_blog16 March 2015:

Our forthcoming CNBP Research Fellow, Xue Bai, has been awarded a prestigious Marie-Curie Fellowship. The Fellowship, one of Europe’s most competitive awards, is aimed at fostering interdisciplinary research and international collaboration.

Bai’s project, entitled ‘Real-time Up-conversion Luminescence Thermometry Based on Lanthanide Doped Nanodiamonds in a Living Cell’, will see the development of a novel thermometer to be used for intracellular temperature sensing. This project will be carried out at CNBP’s Macquarie University node, as well as at Aston University in the UK, and includes two key partners, the Humboldt University (Germany) and Medtronic Inc (USA).

Xue Bai has more than 10 years research experience in the construction and optical investigation of lanthanide based nanophosphors. At CNBP, she will bring her extensive knowledge and expertise of luminescence to the ‘Illuminate’ theme. She will be responsible for the development of new generation biological imaging nanoparticles, for use in super-sensitive and high-resolution biological sensing systems.
