Intracellular transport – the internal movement of cell components along myriad pathways – is incredibly complex, dynamic and difficult to observe using traditional imaging approaches.
Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI) researchers have scooped nearly half of the Victorian Cancer Agency’s (VCA) 2020 Mid-Career Research Fellowships (Biomedical Stream).
As we start the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines this month, questions raised over whether the two that are the pillars of the initial program, from AstraZeneca and Pfizer, are the right ones – compared with the vaccines in use in other countries – are contributing to a lack of confidence in the program.
Monash BDI researcher Professor Anton Peleg was interviewed by ABC radio (46:06 – 52:16) host Virginia Trioli about the logistics of the COVID-19 rollout for health care workers at the Alfred Hospital.
The Atlantic ran a feature story about the body’s defence against coronavirus variants in which Monash BDI’s Associate Professor Kim Good-Jacobson appeared.
