Honours opportunities for 2019
Cell Reports paper accepted
Our lab is offering positions for Honours students in 2019.
We are looking for highly motivated individuals who want to learn advanced techniques and tackle key issues in cell biology. The projects are based in our lab in the Charles Perkins Centre and focus on uncovering the mechanisms that control insulin secretion and applying these discoveries to the development of new treatments for diabetes.
Each student will be supervised by me and mentored by a post doc. If you are interested then email me directly at email@example.com
Jun's work on local integrin regulation of insulin secretion has just been accepted into Cell Reports. The article will appear in September.
note, the paper is out now, see here.
CDIP funding with Captixbio
Congratulations to Jun who has been awarded her PhD (subject to minor corrections).
Top up PhD Scholarship
We have just been awarded funding from the University's Commercial Development and Industry Partners (CDIP) to seed a project with industry partner Captixbio to pioneer new approaches to treating type 1 diabetes.
Publication in J Biol Chem
We are offering a top up PhD scholarship for outstanding candidates who want to work on diabetes research. The scholarship requires the student to obtain independent funding for fees and living expenses. For details see here.
Grant success from the NHMRC
A paper with our collaborator Prof Herbert Gaisano has just been accepted for publication:
Munc18c depletion attenuates caerulein hyperstimulation induced pancreatitis.
We received a project grant to enable us to determine the role of the apical region of pancreatic beta cells in the control of insulin secretion.
