Oz Single Cells Conference

Monday, 16 July 2018 - 9:00am
This year Garvan is hosting the Oz Single Cell Conference on the 16-17th July. The inaugural meeting was held last year in Melbourne, and was a considerable success with over 200 attendees, and the international launch of new single cell technology. This year there is a great line up of international and national speakers and a heavy industry engagement. If you are working with single cell sequencing technology or data, or interested in this new field, you are encouraged you to register.

Peptide hydrogels: From structure to function - Adam Martin

Friday, 3 August 2018 - 12:00pm
Abstract On the nanoscale, hydrogels can be described as entangled, fibrous structures which can immobilise >99% water. Due to their fibrous structure, hydrogels have been identified as promising candidates for a number of biomedical applications, including tissue engineering, drug delivery and responsive sensors. The use of peptides to form hydrogels allows precise control over the chemical and physical properties of the resultant gel in a reproducible manner.

Innovations in tissue scaffolds and biomimetic systems - mimicking intrinsic and extrinsic determinants of cancer stem cells

Wednesday, 19 September 2018 - 4:00pm
The tumour microenvironment constitutes a dynamic heterogeneous cell compartment that provides an important niche for the embedded cancer (stem) cells. Using patient-derived liquid biopsies, we are developing ex vivo 3D models to 1) faithfully resemble in vivo tumour biology, 2) study cancer (stem) cells in a comprehensive tumour microenvironment and 3) establish precision medicine approaches.
