Dr Mukherjee Funding Success

In addition to Dr Brown’s recent fellowship, Dr Payal Mukherjee has also been awarded a 3 year Project grant from the Garnett Passe and Rodney Williams Memorial Foundation.

Payal aims to develop new techniques for 3D printing biological tissues for use in the inner ear, using scaffolding and in vitro techniques. The project will be developed in collaboration with Prof. Hala Zreiqat from the Biomaterials & Tissue Engineering Research Unit at Sydney University.

Congratulations Payal.

 

Funding Success 2016

Wow – What a way to start the year.

Dr Daniel Brown has been awarded a 5 year “Senior/Principal Research Fellowship” by the Garnett Passe and Rodney Williams Memorial Foundation.

This is a significant award, and a great honor.

The award stems from Daniel’s development of the Light Sheet Microscope, along with the novel methods for investigating endolymph fluid dynamics. Here, Daniel plans to develop a new experimental model of immune-mediated endolymphatic hydrops, to use his Light Sheet Microscope to demonstrate the dynamics of hydrops development, and then to develop novel therapies for hydrops.

Stay posted for more progress with this research.
