A/Prof Barry Cense won a Discovery Project research grant (Australian Research Foundation) entitled “In-vivo functional imaging of cone photoreceptors and ganglion cell axons” worth $192,500. In this project, we visualize the optical response or intrinsic optical signal in photoreceptors after they have been stimulated with visible light. The money will be used to improve existing equipment, to build new equipment, to publish manuscripts and to travel to conferences. The project is a collaboration between UWA, Yonsei University (Prof. Chulmin Joo) and …
Congratulations to Brendan Kennedy, David Sampson, and collaborator Christobel Saunders for winning a National Breast Cancer Foundation Innovator Award for “Micro-palpation: translating touch to the micro-scale to guide breast-conserving surgery.” A great outcome!
Congratulations to A/Prof. Robert McLaughlin for being awarded a Discovery Project grant from the Australian Research Council. The award of $355,000 over three years will support research into multi-modal OCT + fluorescence needles for cancer detection. Congratulations also to A/Prof. Dirk Lorenser for being awarded a prestigious Discovery Early Career Research Award from the Australian Research Council. The grant of $378,000, also over 3 years, is for research into combining OCT fibre probes with optical sensing technologies. Well done guys.
