Although the actin cytoskeleton has been known for some time to regulate vesicle trafficking, its exact role in this process is still unclear. This has largely been due to the difficulty in targeting specific actin filaments within the same cell.
In Australia and among international researchers in smoking cessation, Robyn Richmond is among the very few who have been conducting research in general practice for almost four decades. Her work has resulted in significant changes in the practice of medicine where GPs now are trained in, and implement, smoking cessation interventions with their patients.
Research project seeking students: Stents are meshed wired scaffolds implanted into narrowed arteries to prevent heart attacks and strokes. They still fail in 1 in 10 patients besides being the most common treatment for the largest cause of death world-wide.
Cardiovascular disease is the single largest killer in the world, causing heart attacks and strokes. Experimental investigation of underlying principals are key in combating this epidemic, however individual considerations are still completely missing.
Our laboratory has identified alternatively activated macrophages as cells that have a key role in acute allergic inflammation. This project focuses on the mechanism by which a novel anti-inflammatory compound suppresses the activity of these cells.
This project focuses on requesters of Pathology investigations. Initially, it was primarily aimed at doctors undertaking prevocational training years, but it is now being extended to general practice registrars and advanced trainees in respiratory medicine.
The number of overweight or obese people in Australia has increased dramatically in recent years, increasing disease risk. The brain responds to palatable food in ways similar to the response to drugs of addiction, and this may explain why people find it hard to resist palatable food.
This project seeks to provide insights into new mechanisms that could be used to enhance or inhibit neuronal signalling. The family of pentameric neurotransmitter receptors that are key components in the process of neuronal signalling and are the target of this study.
