MELBOURNE, MONDAY 31 OCTOBER, 2016: Every 18 seconds someone dies from tuberculosis (TB). It is the world’s most deadly infectious disease. Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent of TB, has infected over one-third of the

New research by Imaging CoE immunologists, based at the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, adds another brick to the wall in discovering the immune triggers for celiacs disease. Hugh Reid and Jan Petersen, have been

Scientists and other researchers must be able to communicate with a wide range of audiences. As teams become more and more cross-disciplinary, researchers must learn to communicate with their peers in different disciplines without

The ARC Centre of Excellence in Advanced Molecular Imaging and EMBL Australia announce a workshop on cryo-EM and single-particle analysis to be held at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, 1 – 3 February 2017, preceding the Lorne

Peter Doherty Institute and Imaging CoE researchers have made a major breakthrough in understanding how our immune system produces key infection fighting cells.

Max Cryle wears a few hats: he is an AI on the Imaging CoE, an EMBL group leader and a researcher in the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute. He wore all his hats at once

Australian researchers have applied a new microscopy technique that allows them to monitor the movements of nanoparticles through the inside of a cell They found that drug delivery is more effective when nanoparticles can

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
