The latest addition to ARMI’s Industry Advisory Committee (IAC), Brian Hanrahan, has overseen gene and cell therapy projects and developed new diagnostic devices and tissue-engineered products in Australia, the United States and Canada for over 20 years. In late 2020, Brian returned to Australia and joined Planet Innovation as a Business Development Manager and is […]
The Australia Brazil Chile (ABC) Network is excited to announce its recent expansion, welcoming researchers from Argentina, Colombia and Uruguay to the cohort including Dr Guillermo Lanuza from Fundación Instituto Leloir (Argentina), Associate Professor Flavio Zolessi from Universidad de la República (Uruguay) and Drs Fernando Lizcano, Lina A Gómez, John Londoño and Ana María Santos […]
Taking the leap from academia to startup takes guts and a lot of heart. Not many succeed in taking such a risk, but Monash University alumni, founder and current Executive Director of Cellular Agriculture Australia and the newest member of ARMI’s Industry Advisory Committee (IAC), Dr Bianca Lê is one brave entrepreneur who is leading […]
ARMI researchers have begun to demonstrate the potential of a new method to treat Parkinson’s disease. The research, led by ARMI and EMBL Australia group leader Dr Harald Janovjak in collaboration with colleagues in Germany and Austria, was published in PLOS Genetics today. “In Parkinson’s disease, and indeed many neurodegenerative diseases, specific and very important […]
At the heart of any lab, or indeed of any research institute, is the people. Research runs on the talents and minds and hands of people, and the intermingling and intellectual friction and exchange of ideas that occur between these people. No-one understands this more than ARMI’s newest Development Engagement Committee member, Robert Papworth. Robert […]
The year 2020 was challenging for many Australian biomedical researchers.

Discovery of Naturally Occurring Protein that could Reverse Severe Muscle Wasting in Disease, Aging and Trauma
An exciting discovery by Monash University scientists may lead to faster recovery from muscle injury and wasting diseases. When we tear a muscle – stem cells within it repair the problem. We can see this occurring not only in severe muscle wasting diseases such as muscular dystrophy and in war veterans who survive catastrophic limb […]
2020 has been a challenging year. When anything like an existential threat descends on an organisation or a community, you never quite know where it’s going to lead. But ARMI was extremely good at mutually pulling behind each other, operating to the constraints we had and taking care of each other. We were allowed to, […]
As the COVID-19 pandemic threw every scientist’s conference diary into disarray, ARMI, Monash University and Osaka University were undeterred and forged ahead to hold the 2nd Monash University – Osaka University Symposium on Advanced Biomedical Science virtually last month. While an online event was markedly different from the inaugural meeting in Osaka last year, the […]
