CNBP researchers have developed a new method of detecting multiple cytokines – the body’s messenger proteins – in very small volume samples, which could lead to earlier diagnosis of diseases such as lymphoma. Continue reading
Meet CNBP’s Dr Lianmei Jiang in our latest ‘Quick Chat’ video! She’s developing advanced microfluidic devices for use in cancer diagnosis.
“What I love about science is the more that I learn, the more I realise how little I actually know. Science is a way to turn ‘I don’t know’ into ‘I don’t know yet’,” she says. Click to find out more!
CNBP researchers at Macquarie University celebrated the formal end of National Science Week by participating in Macquarie University’s Open Day, Sunday August 20th.
With a table and demos set-up to entice intending students and members of the public, CNBP researchers discussed their science and talked about the opportunities that a science education can provide. A key focus was the potential of the biophotonics field which will lead to exciting new diagnostic tools and techniques, which will be hugely beneficial to society.
Demonstrations were also undertaken by CNBP researchers including participation in a 30 minute magic show (showcasing real life science that appears fantastical). CNBP Research Fellow Martin Ploschner entertained and educated young and old with his fluorescing bubbles!
The day was hugely fulfilling and given a big thumbs up by CNBP Research Fellow Lianmei Jiang (pictured below) who led the outreach coordination on the day.
CNBP Macquarie node welcomes on board its newest recruit, Dr Lianmei Jiang, Postdoctoral Research Fellow.
A part of Prof Jim Piper’s group, Lianmei will be undertaking CNBP related research activity, particularly related to CNBP’s Olympus collaboration.
Welcome to the CNBP team Lianmei.
