Pathways to therapies in blinding genetic retinal eye diseases

In this project, novel disease genes and variants are identified that cause blinding retinal eye diseases. Cellular, gene editing, proteomic and animal model approaches are taken to more...

Development of genomic resources and unravelling the genetic architecture of complex phenotypic traits in the black tiger prawn (University of Sydney & James Cook University)

Dense SNP-based genomic maps are valuable in associating genetic loci (QTL, GWAS) with complex phenotypic traits and in understanding genome structures. They can also provide a fram more...

How to stop an epileptic seizure - looking for the right molecules to target

Over 400 proteins are implicated in epilepsy. This project involves interrogating models of epilepsy to determine which are the key pathways and molecular mechanisms which could be more...

Genomic selection in the black tiger prawn (University of Sydney)

Future breeding programs for the black tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon) will require integration of genomic data to improve the efficiency of selection. The Holy Grail is to make selec more...

Dietary effects to the local immune response and the initiation and propagation of diabetes and cardiovascular disease in mice

Background: Longitudinal studies have demonstrated a two-¬way relationship between diabetes and the local inflammatory host response, e.g. periodontitis, with more severe period more...

Investigation on the causes for keratoconus

This project will be suitable for PhD students, and it can also be broken down to small projects for master students. It is basic science research based, and the student will experi more...

Tailoring advice to individuals or groups to improve behaviour change and weight control

It has been clearly established for some time that individuals are less likely to respond to guidance and will benefit less if generic rather than individualised information on beha more...
