Kerstin and Vinoth presented updates of their PhD project at the annual Department’s HDR presentations session. Advertisements
On the 3-5th of July, the 8th International Nanomedicine Conference took place at Coogee Beach in Sydney. Vinoth presented a poster about his work on rapid molecular diagnostic by using a portable convective PCR device.
An innovative approach to bioremediation of mercury contaminated soils from industrial mining operations Highlights • A bulk natural substrate, zeolite, was bio-functionalised with encapsulated P. veronii. • This remained viable and functional after long term storage. • Bio-functionalised zeolite increased GEM flux by 104. • A concomitant reduction in GOM emissions was also observed. • Bio-functionalised zeolite shows potential for…
3 year PhD scholarship for 2017: “Development of Protein-based Nanocompartments for the Delivery of Anticancer Drugs” The Project: Compartmentalisation is an important organisational feature of life that allows otherwise incompatible biochemical processes to function cohesively within a cell. It occurs at varying levels of complexity, from eukaryotic organelles and bacterial microcompartments, to viral capsids and even […]
Kerstin travelled to Melbourne for the International Biofest 2016. She was able to present her progress on the project of cell free conversion of biomass into glucaric acid.
Alex took part in the “Advances in Biotechnology for Food and Medical Applications” workshop hosted by the University of Sydney. As an HDR student he was able to present a poster on his recent work and upcoming plans for the identification of glucanases in Euglena gracilis. You can view the pdf of his poster here: Alex…
Anwar attended the “Extremophiles” Conference in Kyoto and gave a talk about recent research on immobilisation using solid binding peptides. We also presented a poster displaying our concepts for cell free bioconversion of waste products into platform chemicals:
Here you will soon see the latest updates from the Sunna group!
