Seminar – Biomaterials: From blood compatibility to stem cell expansion

Speaker Daniel Heath, Senior Lecturer,¬†Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of Melbourne Abstract Biomaterials are critical toward the development of successful biomedical devices, tissue engineering scaffolds, and organ on a chip models.¬† In this talk, we will discuss the design, fabrication, and utilization of biomaterials for two specific applications: blood contacting biomedical devices and substrates for …

Seminar – Single molecule imaging of T cell receptor signalling

Speaker Katharina Gaus, UNSW Abstract Single-moleculelocalisation microscopy(SMLM) can provide a truly molecular image of complex biological processes. We aimed to better understand how the T cellreceptor (TCR)translates antigen binding into intracellular signals on which T cell fate decisions are based.With SMLM and novel analyses, we determined how the spatial organisation regulates signal initiation and propagation …
