Adelaide node visited by Karen Andrews MP

Andrews 417 April 2015:

CNBP Adelaide node was recently visited by Karen Andrews MP, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Industry & Science.

The visit proved to be a wonderful opportunity to explain in greater detail, the trans-disciplinary work that CNBP is undertaking across the nano biophotonics field, and its particularly advantageous nature to biological and medical research.

As part of the visit, Mrs Andrews met with Centre Director Mark Hutchinson and other senior Centre staff including Heike Ebendorff-Heidepriem, Mel McDowall and Kathy Nicholson, and was shown around several working laboratories to get a flavour of CNBP activity.

Topics discussed with Mrs Andrews included 3D imaging of live and intact cells, sensing technologies for advanced reproductive research, the use of photonics for advanced diagnostics as well as the specific use of lasers and fibre in CNBP related science.
