Pathways to therapies in blinding genetic retinal eye diseases

In this project, novel disease genes and variants are identified that cause blinding retinal eye diseases. Cellular, gene editing, proteomic and animal model approaches are taken to more...

How to stop an epileptic seizure - looking for the right molecules to target

Over 400 proteins are implicated in epilepsy. This project involves interrogating models of epilepsy to determine which are the key pathways and molecular mechanisms which could be more...

How do molecules make memories? Understanding synaptic plasticity at the level of protein pathways and signalling.

This project aims to discover and validate new molecular mechanisms of how synaptic plasticity, which underlies learning and memory, is regulated by protein interactions and phospho more...

Genomic selection in the black tiger prawn (University of Sydney)

Future breeding programs for the black tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon) will require integration of genomic data to improve the efficiency of selection. The Holy Grail is to make selec more...

Dietary effects to the local immune response and the initiation and propagation of diabetes and cardiovascular disease in mice

Background: Longitudinal studies have demonstrated a two-¬way relationship between diabetes and the local inflammatory host response, e.g. periodontitis, with more severe period more...

Genomic medicine for unravelling the challenges of pathogenesis and treatment of blindness due to childhood cataract and glaucoma

Novel disease genes and variants are identified that contribute to the blinding eye diseases of childhood cataract and glaucoma.  In this project further novel variants will be more...

Tailoring advice to individuals or groups to improve behaviour change and weight control

It has been clearly established for some time that individuals are less likely to respond to guidance and will benefit less if generic rather than individualised information on beha more...
