14-3-3 Inhibition to Accelerate Wound Healing

14-3-3 Inhibition to Accelerate Wound Healing

This novel approach to facilitate rapid wound healing takes advantage of a mechanism we have newly discovered to enhance mitogenic signaling and promote endogenous ECM production, using inhibition of 14-3-3.

Cancer Immunotherapies for Veterinary Medicine

Cancer Immunotherapies for Veterinary Medicine

Novel monoclonal antibodies for checkpoint blockade immunotherapy in pets.

Next Generation Prostate Cancer Diagnosis

Next Generation Prostate Cancer Diagnosis

An optimised set of newly-discovered prostate cancer biomarkers enables unprecedented specificity for prostate cancer diagnostic assays.

Variant Grid / Genetic Variance Visualisation

Variant Grid  / Genetic Variance Visualisation

A graphical user interface that allows non-bioinformaticians to filter, search and analyse a patient´s genetic variants in a database.

Plasma screen for improved plasma healthcare

Plasma screen for improved plasma healthcare

Thin hydrogel membranes have been developed to filter out toxic and carcinogenic agents from ionised gas (plasma) sources providing for safe and effective plasma-based medical therapies. The ability to filter out potentially harmful plasma species in the plasma treatment of living tissue adds significant value to existing plasma medical devices and therapies.

Hand-held Ultrasensitive Magnetometer Probe

Hand-held Ultrasensitive Magnetometer Probe

Research scientists from the University of South Australia have developed a novel technology to determine whether cancer has disseminated throughout the body, without the use of radioactive tracers.

Spatial Augmented Reality Medical Simulation Manikin

Spatial Augmented Reality Medical Simulation Manikin

A novel diagnostic training tool has been developed that uses SAR technology to project 3D visual textures simulating patient disease, disorder or trauma onto the surface of a patient manikin.

Induced Multipotent Neural Stem Cells

Induced Multipotent Neural Stem Cells

Improving induction efficiency, safety and cost by reprogramming mammalian fibroblasts to induced neural stem cells using small-molecule compounds.

14-3-3 Targeting Cancer Therapeutics

14-3-3 Targeting Cancer Therapeutics

Novel class of anti-cancer drugs targeting disruption of dimeric 14-3-3 protein

Australian Bush Bioactives

Australian Bush Bioactives

The significance of this project relates to the potential to develop a new topical, non-steroidal antiinflammatory treatment for dermatitis and psoriasis. Compounds in development are unrelated to those in current clinical use, possibly with a novel mechanism of action and improved safety profile.

In-situ Optical Bio-sensing Probe

In-situ Optical Bio-sensing Probe
A novel bio-sensing platform for the detection of large macromolecules such as proteins being able to operate either in-vivo or in-vitro for medical diagnostic applications or as a research instrument.
