ARMI is pleased to welcome Linda Somerville as the newest member to the Industry Advisory Committee! Linda is an experienced cellular biologist with a long-standing passion for science and technology, having worked in both academia and industry across many different countries. Combining her expertise in biomedical research and commercialisation, and her passion for improving the lives of patients, Linda is excited to bring her skills and knowledge to ARMI's Industry Advisory Committee.

Hailing from Brazil, Luana Santos is in the midst of a PhD at the University of São Paulo, investigating the molecular mechanisms that drive heart development. To this end, Luana has made the long journey to Australia to spend one year under the supervision of Dr Mirana Ramialison at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI). Here, she hopes to delve deep into the highly specialised bioinformatics space in which the Ramialison Group excels.

Last month, the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) was delighted to host Dr Elie Sawan, the principle Paediatric Cardiothoracic Surgeon from Hôtel-Dieu de France Hospital in Beirut, Lebanon. Dr Sawan delivered an amazing talk to ARMI and Monash University researchers, discussing his work in the field of congenital heart disease. Highlighted in his presentation was how his research forms an integral part of a greater international collaboration with the Ramialison Group at ARMI.

The principles of regenerative medicine can be theoretically applied to any cell type in the body. This means that regenerative medicine holds the potential to treat most illnesses, conditions and diseases. Specifically, regenerative medicine can be used to grow or repair organs, whether it be in the context of congenital disease, physical injury or aging.  

Collaboration is the cornerstone of discovery. ARMI and Monash University recognise the importance of fostering international networks to facilitate the healthy exchange and flow of not only talented scientists but also brilliant ideas. To this end, Monash University and The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) established an alliance in 2017, focused on developing collaborative high impact programs in the fields of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine at ARMI, and innovative medical devices at Monash’s Institute Medical Engineering (MIME).
