Nanoscale BioPhotonics satellite meeting Friday 12th December 2014, Melbourne

Sanam Mustafa High Res Edit 016612 December 2014: Upcoming Workshop

A half-day satellite workshop on Friday 12th December 2014 at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia will follow the international ASCEPT-MPGPCR meeting.

The aim of this workshop is to introduce the interdisciplinary approaches adopted by physicists, chemists and biologists to address fundamental and novel biological questions. Key cutting-edge technologies exclusive to the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics will be described along with examples of current and potential applications. This workshop is an excellent forum to discuss the impact of these cutting edge technologies on your research with CNBP researchers, who can then facilitate future collaborations.

Thanks to CNBP Researcher Dr Sanam Mustafa for organising this workshop

Frontier Technologies for Nervous System Function and Repair

Sanam Mustafa High Res Edit 016630 November 2014: Invited Presentation

CNBP researcher Dr Sanam Mustafa was an  invited speaker at the Mount Lofty workshop. Her talk, “Nanoscale Biophotonics: A multidisciplinary approach to future proofing drug discovery” highlighted opportunities for developing high-throughput, cost-effective technologies for drug discovery.

On 28th-30th November, the Mt Lofty Workshop on Frontier Technologies for Nervous System Function and Repair was hosted at Mt Lofty House in the beautiful Adelaide Hills. The workshop was composed of three sessions: Neural Technologies, Neuroprotection and Neurorepair and Nanoscale Biophotonics. The program included national and international speakers that cover a broad range of topics.

On 28th-30th November, the Mt Lofty Workshop on Frontier Technologies for Nervous System Function and Repair was hosted at Mt Lofty House in the beautiful Adelaide Hills. The workshop included three sessions: (1) Neural Technologies (2)  Neuroprotection and Neurorepair and (3) Nanoscale Biophotonics.

With a program than included national and international speakers, the Nanoscale BioPhotonics session highlighted the transdisciplinary approach CNBP is adopting to answer novel biological questions.

This workshop is considered a boutique and exciting meeting. The meeting had diverse speakers and engaging discussions.

Encouraging future scientists

November 2Neuro014: High School Work Experience

Mr Julian Greentree spent a week in the neuroimmunopharmacology laboratory working with CNBP researchers Ms Vicky Staikopoulos and Dr Sanam Mustafa.

During this time Julian was trained in cell culture techniques and novel clearing histological techniques in the development phases for later rollout in biophotonics projects.

Dr Mustafa visits key collaborators at Macquarie University

Sanam Mustafa High Res Edit 016620 October 2014: Dr Mustafa visit key collaborators at Macquarie University to discuss novel and interdisciplinary projects.

During her visit to Macquarie University, Dr Mustafa met with Prof Ewa Goldys and Dr Ayad Anwer to discuss the progress of a collaborative project. During her visit, Dr Mustafa shared her expertise in cell culture with Dr Anwer and discussed the progress of the project. Dr Anwer provided a tour of the facilities and explained the process behind image acquisition and data analysis for hyperspectral studies.

Dr Mustafa also discussed a new collaborative project with Prof Nicki Packer and Dr Arun Dass. This project is now in its initial planning stages and experimental work will start shortly.
