An international team of more than 20 scientists led by Imaging CoE scientists has inadvertently discovered how to create a new type of crystal using light ten billion times brighter than the sun.

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position to join our team of cell biologists and biophysicists at the EMBL Australia Node in Single Molecule Science, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia (http://sms.unsw.edu.au)

Inorganic polyphosphate (polyP) is a polymer that is widespread in biology and has many functions. In particular, it is secreted by activated platelets and accelerates blood clotting.

Latest detector system installed on the FEI Titan Krios microscope will make it the most powerful microscope in Australia.

Imaging CoE scientists from UNSW and Monash have collaborated on a project using powerful imaging technology, they have identified how human immune receptors become activated in the presence of harmful substances. They found that receptors

We all know that a brush with poison ivy leaves us with an itchy painful rash. Now, Imaging CoE and Harvard researchers have discovered the molecular cause of this irritation. The finding brings us a step closer to designing agents to block this mechanism and sheds light on other serious skin conditions, such as psoriasis.

Imaging CoE postdoc Daniel Langley spent a week in sunny California working with a team of scientists from around the world.

We all know that junk food is bad for our waistline. Now a new study has shown that a diet high in saturated fat begins to harm our immune system before the weight gain

Imaging CoE AI Steve Lee, from the Australian National University, published a paper in Biomedical Optics Express that lays out an all optical particle delivery system for use in XFEL experiments. Here, Steve explains the paper, the physics and the contactless trampoline to us.

Australian researchers have discovered that a bad diet has consequences on your immune system even before you notice an increase in body weight.

Branch Moody, a Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School and Physician, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, is visiting Monash for approximately three weeks (27 July – 11 August) under the umbrella of a Harvard-Australia Fellowship. Branch has

Einstein a Go Go is a radio science show broadcast weekly on Triple R FM 102.7 MHz in Melbourne, Australia. Their mission is science communication. Each week they discuss science and science-related issues in

Recently installed infrastructure for automated protein nano-crystallisation, at Monash University, has important implications for the field of structural biology in Australia and internationally.

Hans Elmlund and Andrew Martin are Imaging CoE AIs. One works on developing new image processing theories for single-particle cryo-EM, the other works in the realm of theoretical physics. One works at Monash, the other at Melbourne. One has a thing for electrons, the other for X-rays.

Imaging CoE CI David Fairlie gives behind-the-scenes insight into his recently published study on helix nucleation, describing how the results could lead to a better understanding of infection and immunity.

Following the success of our 2015 program, all members of the Centre for Advanced Molecular Imaging are invited to the first Physics Symposium for 2016. We are taking the opportunity to assess our progress so far and

#JustUpdated SIMPLE 2.1 Single-particle IMage Processing Linux Engine (SIMPLE) is a tool developed by Imaging CoE AI’s Hans Elmlund and Dominika Elmlund.

EMBL Australia is offering talented students the opportunity to undertake interdisciplinary, postgraduate research at Australia’s top life sciences laboratories in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Canberra. For more information, please refer to the flyer below
