The Summer 2017 of the ARMI newsletter, Regenerate, is now available for download in the 'Resources' section. Here are just some of the highlights for ARMI in the final quarter of 2017:

  • New discoveries pave the way for improved understanding of stem cell research tools.
  • Meet Dr Harald Janovjak. He's a basic biology researcher with a regenerative medicine twist.
  • New experience, perspective, and Institute leadership.
  • A tale of three countries - The ABC Regenerative Medicine and Developmental Biology Symposia
  • ARMI's Master of Biotechnology
  • The next generation of regenerative medicine researchers 

Discover what other highlights have emerged and read the diverse range articles in the latest edition of Regenerate.

The Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) had the honour of hosting the inaugural ABC Symposium in October. The symposia are part of a longer-term engagement initiative to strengthen institutional relationships between the Brazilian Biosciences National Laboratory (LNBio), University of Campinas (Unicamp, Brazil), University of Chile, Pontifical Catholic University of Chile and ARMI.

A newly published paper in the prominent science journal ‘Nature Methods’ revealed that human pluripotent stem cells have distinct functional and molecular features when generated through various methods. This discovery, realised by the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institutes (ARMI) Polo Group, offers a new comprehensive study in the field of stem cell research. The findings were led by PhD student Ethan Liu and senior Postdoc Christian Nefzger.

When asked about the Griffith University Discovery Award from Research Australia, Dr. Avnika Ruparelia seemed pretty chuffed. “It’s probably one of my greatest achievements” she beamed. And why wouldn’t it be? Her research into identifying therapies for the treatment of myofibrillar myopathy has earned national recognition through this award. Go Avnika!
