arms up image

The 8th Annual Bosch Institute Young Investigator’s Retreat was held at the Kioloa ANU Coastal Campus, from the 18th-20th of February 2014.

We began our journey piling onto the bus, PhD candidates, post-doctoral researchers and academics alike. With a karaoke machine in tow and adventure in our hearts we set off to Kioloa.

Kioloa quite simply was postcard perfect. Picture this, the green rolling hills of southern New South Whales, majestic trees and cuddly fauna, blue skies and a clear sea, starry nights by the fire and let us never forget the karaoke, dance offs and what I believe was trivia? With a few of your favourite academics. This was the Bosch Young Investigator’s Retreat 2014.

Image of the retreat

The 7th Annual Bosch Institute Young Investigator’s Retreat was held at the Kioloa ANU Coastal Campus, from the 19th-21st of February 2013. The retreat brought together 31 young researchers from laboratories of the Bosch Institute for 3 days. The 5 academics facilitated discussions and workshops on topics varying from effective presentation skills, academic writing, career-mentoring and fellowship applications. The retreat was the perfect environment to get to know a wide variety of graduate students and post docs from the laboratories of the Bosch Institute. The social schedule underpinned the formal workshops and provided opportunities for the academics to answer more directed career-related questions. The retreats great success is a credit to the hard work and diligence of the Bosch Young Investigator Committee under the leadership of A/Prof. Frank Lovicu. I learnt a great deal from the young investigators and the academics and I would like to take this opportunity thank all the participants.

Brief Biography:
Professor David Feldman, MD, is Emeritus Professor of Medicine (Active) at Stanford University School of Medicine where he has been on the faculty since 1974. He has been a full professor since 1984 and was chief of the Endocrinology Division for 10 years. His laboratory focuses on the role of steroid hormone receptors, particularly the vitamin D receptor, in its mechanism of action to inhibit cancer growth. His current major research focus is hormone-dependent cancer including breast cancer and prostate cancer. Professor Feldman is actively involved in both basic science approaches to the anti-cancer actions of vitamin D as well as to clinical trials studying the use of vitamin D in breast and prostate cancer. Professor Feldman was recently honored with an award for a Career of Outstanding Contributions to Vitamin D Research. He has authored over 280 medical research articles, reviews, editorials, and book chapters. He is the editor-in-chief of "Vitamin D", just published in its third edition and is co-editor of the first three editions of "Osteoporosis” as well as the fourth edition that is now in preparation. Both books are considered the major texts in their field.

Professor Wes Pike Dr. Pike received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry in 1979 from the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Arizona in Tucson under the direction of Professor Mark R. Haussler. In 1986, Dr. Pike moved to Baylor College of Medicine in Houston in 1986, where he became an Associate Professor in the Department of Cell Biology under the chairmanship of Professor Bert W. O’Malley. Following a brief 5 year tenure as Head of Biochemistry at Ligand Pharmaceuticals, Inc in La Jolla, California, he returned to academics. In 2001, he moved to the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he is currently Professor in the Department of Biochemistry under the direction of Professor Hector F. Deluca. In 2012, he received a career award from the Vitamin D Workshop for his work over the years on vitamin D and the Louis V. Avioli Memorial Founders Award from the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research Society for his contributions to the field of bone and mineral research. Dr. Pike’s primary interests are in the areas of steroid hormone action at the skeleton, where he has focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms whereby the vitamin D hormone, as well as other steroid hormones regulate the expression of genes. In 1987, he together with collaborators that included Drs. Haussler and O’Malley cloned the vitamin D receptor, leading to a number of subsequent studies that defined the receptor’s functional mode of action. The role of the receptor and its partner RXR as well as participating coregulatory proteins in the regulation of numerous genes has been identified and characterized. More recently, Dr. Pike has focused on more global and unbiased approaches to understanding the mechanism of action of the vitamin D hormone in bone cells. To this end, he has employed genome-wide ChIP-seq approaches coupled to BAC clone transgenic methodologies to understand the interacting roles of transcription factors and epigenetic chromatin regulators and their enzymatic modification at the histones of enhancer elements in the modulation of key target genes. Studies in these areas continue to be the focus of Dr. Pike’s research.

Title:
The Yin and Yang of IGF and IGF-Binding Protein Signalling
Date:
Friday 21 October, 2011
Time:
1.00pm - 2.00pm
Venue:
Education Lecture Theatre 351, Education Building
Manning Road, University of Sydney


Summary: Insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I and IGF-II have essential roles in cell proliferation, differentiation, survival and migration by activating members of the IGF- and insulin-receptor tyrosine kinase family. Their activity is modulated by a family of six high-affinity IGF binding proteins (IGFBPs) that transport the IGFs in the circulation, regulate their access to cell surface receptors, and interact with other cell surface and nuclear signalling systems. These interactions are important in many processes including cancer, vascular/endothelial cell function and adipogenesis, and can be either stimulatory or inhibitory to cell function. This presentation will discuss research aimed at elucidating the mechanisms of these diverse and sometimes opposing effects.

My Life in the Central Visual Pathways
Date:
Wednesday 9 March, 2011
Time:
1.00pm – 2.00pm
Venue:
Rm N248, Anderson-Stuart Building, University of Sydney

Ray Guillery is one of the most distinguished contemporary functional neuroanatomists. His work can best be described as pioneering and conclusive. He is best known for his insightful, detailed analysis of the microanatomy of the mammalian visual system, spanning from the optic nerve to the dorsal thalamus. Ray has been a truly inspirational mentor to several generations of anatomists and his work has changed the way people “see” or view the organisation of the mammalian brain, in particular its visual system. Ray started his academic career at University College London. He then had several productive interludes in the USA, including the University of Wisconsin and the University of Chicago, before moving back to the UK as the Dr Lee’s Professor of Anatomy at the University of Oxford. He continues his experimental work and is forever thinking about how the brain is organised anatomically and functionally. In this lecture, Ray will reflect on his work on the visual pathways, from the retina to dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus.

Diana Temple was a respiratory pharmacologist and Associate Professor at the University of Sydney, as well as one of the founders of the Women in Science Enquiry Network, or WISENET. She was appointed as a member of the Order of Australia in 1999, for service to medical and scientific research, particularly in the field of respiratory pharmacology, as an advocate for the role of women in science and in promoting an understanding of science by the general public. The Diana Temple Memorial Lectures are organised to reflect Diana's interests, which included pharmacology, public engagement with science and policy, the advancement of the role of women in science, and the environment.

The Diana Temple Memorial Lecture for 2009 is supported by the
Bosch Institute, University of Sydney, the Australian and New Zealand Association for the Advancement of Science (ANZAAS), the Women in Science Enquiry Network (WISENET), and Jessie Street National Women's Library.
