News / 20 December 2018

The December 2018 of the ARMI newsletter, Regenerate, is now available to view in the 'Resources' section. Here are some of the highlights for ARMI in December:

  • Regenerative Medicine: Today and Tomorrow
  • Nadinath Nillegoda: ARMI’s Newest Group Leader is tapping into the Brain
  • 2018 Director's Awards
  • New Publications
  • Welcome to our new UROP students

Discover what other highlights have emerged and keep up to date with ARMI in the latest edition of Regenerate.

ARMI is pleased to welcome its newest Group Leader, Dr Nadinath Nillegoda. Coming all the way from Sri Lanka with career pit-stops in the United States and Germany, Nadinath is now exploring the nexus between neurodegeneration and immunology, which provides him a niche in a quickly expanding research field. Neurodegenerative diseases, collectively, are the leading cause of disability among our aging communities and there is no effective cure. Since joining us in December, Nadinath has been hard at work setting up his research group in the pursuit of a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms that underpin neurodegenerative diseases. With hopes of pushing the boundaries of brain research, Nadinath is determined to improve the health outcomes for those with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

During this year's AusBiotech conference, held in October in Brisbane, MTPConnect released the report, Regenerative Medicine: Opportunities for Australia, in collaboration with the AusBiotech Regenerative Medicine Advisory Group and other key stakeholders, including the Centre for Commercialisation of Regenerative Medicine (CCRM) Australia. The report, a culmination of surveys, interviews and workshops with more than 60 key members and bodies in the sector, analyses the current state of regenerative medicine (RM) in Australia, its strengths and weaknesses, and provides a roadmap for advancing the sector to successfully compete on the global stage. While the document has a commercialisation and industry focus, it does emphasise the strength, importance and necessity of discovery research in RM.

Regenerate Newsletter - November 2018

News / 30 November 2018

The November 2018 of the ARMI newsletter, Regenerate, is now available to view in the 'Resources' section. Here are some of the highlights for ARMI in November:

  • Jihane Homman-Ludiye: ‘Pursuing neurobiology was a ‘No-Brainer’’
  • Eva Gschaider-Reichhart: Shedding Light on Therapies for Diabetes
  • Veronica Uribe Sokolov: Investigating Growth Control
  • Alexandra Grubman: Focusing Brain Power on Alzheimer’s Disease

When Associate Professor Harald Janovjak decided to relocate his laboratory from the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) to ARMI, postdoctoral researcher Eva Gschaider-Reichhart was up for the challenge of swapping continents and joined him. With a speciality in optogenetics - the utilisation of light to control cells in living tissue - Eva brings with her a palpable passion for science and a unique set of skills, knowledge and experience.

Come December, Dr Jihane Homman-Ludiye will be celebrating her 10 year anniversary at ARMI. We can’t believe how fast the time has flown - nor how many contributions she’s made to the institute. As a postdoctoral researcher in the Bourne Group, Jihane dedicates her working life to expanding the frontier of neurobiology research, an area in which she is very passionate.
