Researchers within the Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI) at Monash University have made a breakthrough in understanding the role played by high-risk immune genes associated with the development of rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
Monash BDI researchers are collaborating with Imagion on a preclinical research project that will jump start Imagion’s prostate cancer project and advance their MagSense™ technology for a new cancer indication, supported by CSIRO funding.
The immune systems of all vertebrates contain specialized cells, called T cells, that play a fundamental role in protecting against fungal, bacterial, parasitic and viral infections.
A paper in Molecular Cell by Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI) scientists Dr Michael Lazarou and Dr Thanh Nguyen has had an unexpected outcome, creating a technological advance using artificial intelligence in 3D electron microscopy data.
Imagine if there was a safe, effective way to extract deadly cystic fibrosis genes from an IVF embryo. That is not possible now because advancing the technology to the clinic has been limited by the paucity of embryos donated by parents who have undergone IVF and no longer need them.
