31 October 2014: Welcome Dr Leiterer.
Dr Christian Leiterer from the Institute for Photonic Technology in Jena Germany (IPHT) has been funded to undertake a 12 month German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) research fellowship in 2014.
His research will focus on the development of a microfluidic device for the separation of non-polar biomarkers.
7 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
6 August 2014: Dr Christian Leiterer from IPHT Jena
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.
3-5 June 2014: Visit to IPHT, Jena
A/Prof Heike Ebendorff visited with collaborators Prof Markus Schmidt, Dr Kay Schuster and Porf Lothar Wondraczek to disucss current and future collaborations.
28-29 April 2014:
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.
22-25 April 2014:
Professor Ewa Goldys hosted productive meetings with CNBP Partner Organisation at the Institute of Photonic Technology (IPHT) in Jena, discussing future joint CNBP projects.
