In 2015, the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute built upon solid foundations of excellence, with several key events illustrating the growing maturity of our innovative research and collaborative efforts.
A Regenerative Medicine Advisory Group to be chaired by Silvio Tiziani has been formed by AusBiotech.
The Group, comprising 10 members, will provide advice on current and emerging issues and trends facing the regenerative medicine sector in Australia and overseas, improve and engage the sector, generate a clear definition of regenerative medicine and address key advocacy issues.
ARMI would like to congratulate Dr Mirana Ramialison on winning the Thinkable inaugural “Peer Prize for Women in Science”. Here, the Ramialison groups research into hacking the genome for junk DNA to tackle childhood heart disease has been recognised. Dr Ramialison is a thought leader in this area, and provides a fantastic role mode to ARMI’s early career researchers.
It’s National Science Week, and at ARMI we could not be prouder of our amazing team of scientists, technicians, students, affiliates and administrative team who embody the spirit of ARMI. It is this group of talented and dedicated individuals who are working to unlock the regenerative capability of the human body. Our 77+ strong team of scientists boasts 15 research groups, making us one of the largest regenerative medicine and stem cell research hubs in the world.
On behalf of the staff and students of the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute, Monash University, I would like to extend my condolences on the passing of a long-time supporter of our Institute, Eva Erdi.
You don’t need a clinical understanding of muscular dystrophy (MD) to know it is a debilitating disease. While the symptoms and prognoses do differ on an individual basis, MD is characterised by defects in muscle proteins and the death of muscle cells and tissue.
Scientists at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) at Monash University (Melbourne) have identified an important evolutionary innovation that gave rise to many land animals, from reptiles and birds to mammals, and including our own species.
The Martino group’s focus is to combine knowledge from the fields of bioengineering, stem cells and immunology to further understand the role the immune system plays in tissue repair and regeneration. The ultimate goal of the group is to design new regenerative strategies for the repair of bone and tissue.
