  • New populations of cells found in healthy and disease hearts
    30 August 2017
    Nona Farbehi is exploring whether certain cells in the heart can heal the heart after damage from myocardial infarction. Her work was recently awarded a prize for the Best Student Poster at the 2017 Stem Cells Australia Retreat.
  • Using stem cells to understand the inner ear
    29 August 2017
    Cristiana Mattei is a PhD student based in the Centre for Neural Engineering at the University of Melbourne where she is using brain organoids to study how the brain develops and what happens in degenerative disease, brain injury and in neuro-cognitive disorders. Cristiana was recently awarded a prize for the Best Student Presentation at the 2017 Stem Cells Australia Retreat.
  • Growing heart organoids reveals regenerative potential
    28 August 2017
    Holly Voges is a PhD student at the University of Queensland. Her research focuses on developing a laboratory model of acute heart injury. Holly was first author on a paper published in the journal Development that explores this new way of investigating heart regeneration and received the Best Early Career Researcher Publication award at the 2017 Stem Cells Australia Retreat.
  • Making mini-kidneys to understand kidney disease
    28 August 2017
    Dr Lorna Hale is a scientist at the Murdoch Children’s Institute in Melbourne. For over ten years she has worked in the field of renal medicine with a focus on the role of particular cells found in kidney called podocytes. She recently received a prize for her work at the Stem Cells Australia Retreat.
  • New research aids understanding of how genes are regulated
    22 August 2017
    A decrease in expression of certain genes within the cells of the body has been implicated in cancer, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disease and neurological disorders. One way genes can be inhibited is through the action of microRNAs, small non-coding molecules of ribonucleic acid (RNA). To help researchers understand more about the role of microRNAs in disease, an international consortium of scientists has produced an interactive map that displays where these molecules are expressed and how they might work within the body.
  • CSIRO scientist receives prestigious Gilead award
    07 July 2017
    Dr Ben Cao, a Research Scientist in the CSIRO Niche Biology Team in Biomedical Manufacturing, was awarded the Gilead Sciences International Research Scholars Program in Hematology and Oncology in June 2017.
  • Australian study clears way to growing replacement body organs
    07 July 2017
    A discovery by Australian scientists promises to pave the way to producing replacement organs for damaged hearts, kidneys and bowels, using patients’ own stem cells. The research, pioneered by a team of scientists led by Professor Peter Currie, Director of the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute at Monash University (Melbourne), could overcome the severe shortage of donor organs for transplants.
  • Stem Cell Tourism: Experts call for tighter regulation
    05 July 2017
    A new paper in Science Translational Medicine calls for harmonised global regulation to tackle the rise of unproven stem cell treatments.
  • ARMI to lead research for international company
    14 June 2017
    The Australian branch of Cell Mogrify, a company that drastically reduces the time it takes to reprogram cells, is run by A/Prof Jose Polo, Associate Professor and group leader at ARMI.
  • Melissa Little and David Gardner elected as Fellows of Australian Academy of Science
    22 May 2017
    Twenty-one of Australia’s best scientists have been elected to the Australian Academy of Science, a rare and esteemed honour, for their outstanding contributions to science. Amongst the 2017 Fellows are Professor Melissa Little, Stem Cells Australia’s Program Leader and Theme Director of Cell Biology at the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, and Professor David Gardner, reproductive biologist at the University of Melbourne and a Chief Investigator in our consortium.
