11th International Colloquium on Paratuberculosis (11 ICP)    View Summary
5 February 2012 to 10 February 2012

11th International Colloquium on Paratuberculosis - ICP 2012, 5 - 10 February 2012.

Paratuberculosis or Johne's disease is caused by Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis and this gives the International Association for Paratuberculosis (IAP) its name. Members of the IAP work in 36 countries to foster growth of knowledge about this insidious pathogen and the disease it causes.

An Introduction to Bayesian Graphical Modelling - Workshop by Dr Fraser Lewis    View Summary
15 February 2012 to 17 February 2012

Bayesian graphical modelling
It is a powerful methodology for visualizing and analyzing complex epidemiological data,it is ideally suited for risk factor studies and analysis of questionnaire data. This technique may reveal far more about complex disease systems than standard approaches when dealing with many inter-related variables, as is common in farm survey data.

It is largely computer based and uses R. Some familiarity with R would be advantageous but not essential, as would previous experience of basic epidemiology and statistical modelling, such as linear regression techniques.

Dr Fraser Lewis is an Applied Statistician in the Section of Epidemiology, Vetsuisse. Fraser has over 10 years experience working with epidemiological data following degrees in Statistics and a PhD in Mathematics. He has recently received funding from the Swiss National Science Foundation to develop Bayesian network models for applications in epidemiological research, in collaboration with the Farm Surveillance Unit within the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Date, Venue and Registration
The workshop will be held on 15-17 February at the Camden Campus of The University of Sydney (425 Werombi Road, Camden NSW 2570).
This course is being run on a cost-recovery basis. The course fee is $150 for students and $300 for non-students. This fee includes the course materials, morning and afternoon tea/coffee and lunch for each day.

Husbandry regained: futures for animals in sustainable agriculture   View Summary
28 May 2012

Many consider Professor John Webster to be the "father" of modern animal welfare. John was part of the group that came up with "the 5 freedoms" - principles which have gained international recognition as standards for defining the elements of good welfare in domestic animals.

A veterinary graduate from the University of Cambridge (1963) and now Professor Emeritus at the University of Bristol, Prof Webster's primary focus has been on agriculture and veterinary teaching and research, including four years in Canada at the University of Alberta and 10 years at the Hannah and Rowett Research Institutes in Scotland. In 1977, he was appointed Professor of Animal Husbandry at the University of Bristol Veterinary School where he established a unit for the study of animal welfare and behaviour, one of the largest such group in the world, (over 60 strong). He is currently a member of the Animal Health and Welfare Panel of the European Food Safety Agency.

Don't miss this chance to listen to one of the world's foremost thinkers on animal welfare!

Parasite Encounters in the Wild   View Summary
2 July 2012

The Australian Society for Parasitology invites you to our free "Inspiring Australia" public event:

"Parasite Encounters in the Wild"

from 5.45 pm, Monday 2nd July 2012,
Country Club Tasmania, Country Club Avenue, Prospect Vale, near Launceston

All welcome, science activities for kids, Tasmanian devil and free drink on arrival.

Watch us live online from 6pm

Join us as we talk about Parasite Encounters in the Wild:

"Is Devil facial tumour disease the perfect parasite?" Greg Woods from Menzies Research Institute Tasmania will tell us how this disease has developed a clever way to be transmitted and to affect the host immune system, causing its death but not before it moves to another host.

"What parasites do we give to wildlife?" Are Australian wildlife more at risk of succumbing to parasites of human origin - particularly as we encroach more on wildlife habitats? Andrew Thompson from Murdoch University will investigate our ideas of "One Health".

"Parasites: the hidden part of biodiversity." What parasite is on Tasmania's endangered species list? Ian Beveridge from The University of Melbourne will turn you into a citizen scientist with all of the discoveries to make along Australian roadsides which will contribute to the documentation of biodiversity in this country.

Special guest appearance of a Tasmanian Devil from Trowunna Wildlife Park, Mole Creek, Tasmania.

"Young parasites science club" free, fun, supervised science activities for young scientists available during the presentation. Bookings essential for the science club.

This Inspiring Australia initiative is supported by the Australian Government through the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education in partnership with the Australian Society for Parasitology Inc.

Mass Spectrometry and its Applications to the study of Biological Systems.   View Summary
19 September 2012

Presenter: Dr. Ben Crossett (Research Fellow in Proteomics (School of Molecular Bioscience) and Manager of the Sydney University Proteome Research Unit).

Dr Crossett began his scientific career at the University of Manchester, gaining a BSc(Hons) in Biochemistry, followed by a PhD at the University of Cambridge under the mentorship of Dr F Stewart, in which he characterised a novel uterine protein in mares. He completed post-doctoral research at Imperial College, London investigating protein based tumour therapies and subsequently utilised a proteomics-based approach to discover novel anti-microbial and vaccine targets inBurkholderia pseudomallei. In 2004, he became the Research Fellow in Proteomics and Manager of the Sydney University Proteome Research Unit (SUPRU). SUPRU specialises in the application of 2D Gel Electrophoresis, DIGE, quantitative shotgun proteomics techniques and selective reaction monitoring to the study of biological systems from a wide range of species from alpacas to zoozanthella. As manager of the SUPRU he is involved in a wide range of projects, however his primary research focus is understanding of the molecular process driving the formation and repair of multiple sclerosis lesions and ultimately the failure of this repair mechanism in most patients. Through this work his research group have developed unparallel expertise in processing (particularly laser guided microdissection) of formalin fixed neurological tissue for proteomics applications.

Dr. David Jenkins

Senior Research Fellow in Parasitology
School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences

Charles Sturt University (Wagga)

David Jenkins did a Bachelors degree in Botany and Zoology, followed by an MSc in Immunology at the University of London. In the two years following his MSc studies David worked on human hookworm infection in Java, Indonesia as part of an Australian aid project. After Indonesia, David returned to Australia and got into hydatid disease whilst doing a PhD at the University of Melbourne vet school. The PhD project focused on studies to understand the immune responses of dogs to tapeworm infection. David then went to Kenya and worked on hydatid disease in the Turkana District of NW Kenya. After 2 years in Kenya, David returned to Australia to take up a research position with the SE NSW & ACT Hydatid Control Program where he studied the role of native and introduced wildlife in the transmission of hydatid disease. David currently has the position of Senior Research Fellow in the School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences at Charles Sturt University in Wagga. His main, current, research interest is in the transmission and financial impact of sheep measles (Taenia ovis)
