Research Update from CI Goldys

nanorubies7 August 2014: New update from Macquarie

August promises to be an eventful month for CNBP. On the 6th of August, Ewa established a new collaboration with ETH in the area of SPAD arrays. These devices have applications for real-time fluorescence lifetime imaging. The idea is to use them as a version of Google glass for surgeons, enabling them to see the operation in a totally new light with molecular contrast.

On the 7th of August we obtained our first collaborative results from our joint work with Professor Rainer Heitzmann from our partner institution, IPHT. We used nanorubies developed by the Macquarie team (Zvyagin, Goldys, Sreenivasan, Wan) to carry out superresolution imaging in Rainer’s laboratory. The results are truly spectacular

Dr Christian. Leiterer from the Institute for Photonic Technology in Jena Germany (IPHT) Macquarie University has been funded to undertake a 6 month research fellowship in 2014 at the Macquarie Node of CNBP . The competitive Fellowship is provided by German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) . His research will focus on the development of a microfluidic device for the separation of non-polar biomarkers. The work is expected to commence in the second half of 2014 Christian will be working with Professor Ewa Goldys, Deputy Director, CNBP and Dr David Inglis, (Macquarie Engineering).

Dr Leiterer is currently working as scientific employee at the Institute of Photonic Technology in Jena, a Partner Institution of our Centre.

CNBP visits IPHT

Professor Ewa Goldys delivered a talk at the Translational Centre for Regenerative Medicine, University of Leipzig, Germany  entitled “Biological label-free interrogation of cell populations by hyperspectral imaging”. Discussions about collaborative engagement prospects  in the area of cell analysis were held with Dr Attila Tarnok, Professor for Immunology and Cytomics at the University of Leipzig and  Editor-in-Chief of Cytometry A.  Professor Tarnok is Chair of the CYTO meeting series, the leading forum for cell analysis globally and is very closely aligned with the German business scene.

To initiate this collaboration, Professor Tarnok invited Ewa to write a joint review to Cytometry A regarding hyperspectral technology.
