UQDI Seminar Series

This is a weekly series open to all occupants to attend. The next seminar will take place on the 19 February. 

Date Presenter Seminar Title Speaker Bio Location and Time
19th February  PhD Students Carrie Coggon and Amy Pham 

Antibody that exacerbates disease in sepsis and lung infection

Carrie Coggon - A novel method of serum resistance in Escherichia coli mediated sepsis

Amy Pham - Outfoxing Pseudomonas and Burkholderia in chronic lung infections

Carrie is a final year PhD student in the T-Wells group. Her research focuses on determining the mechanisms underlying antibodies that inhibit complement-mediated killing of E. coli.  

Amy is a second year PhD student in the T-Wells group. Her research focuses on the bacterial-host interactions in patients with chronic lung disease pre and post lung transplant. Her work has already led directly to treatment of two patients.

12th February  Professor Nick Hayward The genomic landscape of acral  melanoma

Professor Nick Hayward has studied the molecular genetics of melanoma for over 30 years. He was the first to carry out a linkage scan for melanoma susceptibility genes, to confirm the location of one such gene (CDKN2A), and to report mutations of CDKN2A in Australian families. He played key roles in the identification of CDK4, POT1, ACD, TERF2IP and MITF as melanoma susceptibility genes and in linkage and association scans for melanoma, pigmentation and nevi.
