Kishan Sangani is an exchange student from Indiana University. He will be spending the next 6 months working under the supervision of Dr Sanam Mustafa on CNBP projects.
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
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.
November 2014: 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.
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.
Hugh Kearns is recognised internationally as a public speaker, educator and researcher. The workshop covered three main areas:
- Time for research
- Turbocharge your writing
- Shameless self-promotion
Thanks to the School of Health Sciences for inviting us to join this session.
