Identifying individuals at high risk of Alzheimer’s disease

BACKGROUND. Dementia affects an estimated 353,800 Australians, with up to 80% being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Newly developed anti-amyloid drugs are set to revolutionise the treatment of AD. Read more

Human neuroimaging and blood biomarkers for inherited neurodegenerative diseases

Background. Can new human brain imaging techniques allow us to better understand, track, and treat neurodegenerative diseases?. Can blood-based proteomics/metabolomics help us to better define and predict heterogeneity in the onset and progression of neurodegeneration?. Read more

Modelling brain dynamics across the lifespan

A major challenge for neuroscience is to understand how the brain’s densely interconnected network of neurons—the “connectome”—gives rise to the rich repertoire of brain activity. Read more

Targeting Novel Eph Receptors in Solid Tumours

Background. We have generated well-characterised monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against several Eph and ephrin receptor proteins that are present on distinct cell populations in several solid tumours such as colon, breast, prostate and brain cancer. Read more

CAR T cells – redirecting T cells for cancer immunotherapy

Chimeric Antigen Receptors (CARs) are genetically engineered molecules that can redirect T cells to recognise particular antigens, such as those expressed by cancer cells. Read more

Development of CRISPR based technology in schistosome bloodflukes

Schistosomiasis is a serious global problem and the second most devastating parasitic disease after malaria. Currently, there is no effective vaccine available and treatment is entirely dependent on praziquantel chemotherapy, which raises significant potential threat to public health should drug resistance develop. Read more

Somatic changes to mitochondria DNA in cancer development

Background. Mitochondria are membrane-bound cell organelles that are critical for energy production and cell metabolism. Mitochondria are located in the cytoplasm of cells and have their own DNA that is circular and approximately 17 kb. Read more
