Medical research seminar: Host-pathogen Interactions

February 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Centenary Institute Lecture Theatre

My group are interested in host-pathogen interactions and, in particular, in understanding how some fungal pathogens are able to subvert phagocyte behaviours. In this talk I will discuss our recent work in probing the cryptococcal/macrophage interaction.

Medical Research Seminar: Visualising immune cells

March 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Centenary Institute Lecture Theatre, Building 93, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital Camperdown, New South Wales 2050 Australia

Visualising immune cell fate decisions, blood cancers and tissue remodeling with long-term in vitro and in vivo microscopy. It is widely accepted that complex interactions between blood cells and their surrounding microenvironments contribute to homeostatic cell function and disease development.

Medical Research Seminar: Smooth muscle cells

March 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Centenary Institute Lecture Theatre, Building 93, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital Camperdown, New South Wales 2050 Australia

Clonality and cellular plasticity of atherosclerotic plaques. Smooth muscle cells (SMCs) play a key role in vascular diseases. However, mechanisms regulating clonal expansion and fate of pre-existing SMCs in vascular disorders remain poorly defined.

Medical Research Seminar: Protein regulation

March 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Centenary Institute Lecture Theatre, Building 93, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital Camperdown, New South Wales 2050 Australia

Professor Phil Hogg presents Allosteric disulfides: Sophisticated molecular structures enabling flexible protein regulation. The processes of life maintenance, replication, defence and reproduction are carried out by proteins. Most, if not all, proteins are chemically modified after they are made in order to control how, when, and where they function.

Medical Research Seminar: Tasmanian Devil Cancer

April 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Centenary Institute Lecture Theatre, Building 93, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital Camperdown, New South Wales 2050 Australia

The Tasmanian devil, Australia’s largest remaining marsupial carnivore, faces extinction in the wild due to the emergence of a new infectious disease. Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD) is a contagious cancer that is spread as an allograft by biting. The tumour spreads due to low levels of genetic diversity in devil populations plus its capacity to evade the immune system. The disease continues to decimate Tasmanian devil populations, with over 85% of the species already lost. Interestingly, although predicted, extinction has not yet occurred.

Medical Research Seminar: Neurodegeneration

April 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Centenary Institute Lecture Theatre, Building 93, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital Camperdown, New South Wales 2050 Australia

The abnormal aggregation of proteins into insoluble deposits is a major hallmark of many diseases including the most common neurodegenerative conditions. How these deposits arise and impact on neuronal health have remained outstanding key research questions for the last 2 decades.
