Coverage: Tiny gemstones advance nanoscale imaging

Low Res Edit 010620 July 2016:

A research team at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP) – led by Dr Philipp Reineck (pictured) from RMIT University’s School of Science – tested ruby and diamond particles, more than a thousand times smaller than the diameter of a hair, alongside other nanoparticles for use in biological imaging, and found that they have a higher degree of stability, critical to achieving imaging success. You can read more about it in the online publication ‘Science meets Business’.

Coverage: Counting cancer-busting oxygen molecules

Ewa Goldys Low Res Edit 01595 February, 2016:

Researchers from the Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP), have shown that nanoparticles used in combination with X-rays, are a viable method for killing cancer cells deep within the living body.

The research, published in the journal ‘Scientific Reports‘ is based on the successful quantification of singlet oxygen produced during photodynamic therapy for cancer. Singlet oxygen molecules (a highly reactive form of oxygen) are able to kill or inhibit growth of cancer cells in the body due to their toxicity.

Co-lead author on the paper, CNBP Deputy Director Ewa Goldys, provided comment on the work and was featured in a number of media publications including PHYS.ORGGIZMAG and R&D Magazine (all of which are accessible online).
