Published in The Age, an opinion piece by Professor John Carroll explains that the new International Society of Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) guidelines on how research into early human life should proceed include statements that are in contradiction to Australian legislation, and that to bring Australian iBlastoid research into line with the new international recommendations will require discussion and possibly legislative change.
Monash University researchers have provided a fundamental advance regarding how T cells become activated when encountering pathogens such as viruses.
In a recent study, Australian scientists used an original approach to resolve the 3D structure of flaviviruses with an unprecedented level of detail, identifying small molecules known as ‘pocket factors’ as new therapeutic targets.
International research led by Monash University and the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity has achieved a proof of concept for a new, fast, portable saliva screening test that uses an infrared light technology to confirm infection with SARS-CoV-2.
Dr Partha Das of Monash University’s Biomedicine Discovery Institute has been announced as the recipient of the Prader Willi Research Foundation Australia (PWRFA) 2020 Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) Grant Round.
