WA is risking COVID-19 disease flare-ups across the state if it becomes too confident too soon and responds to the recent “flattening of the curve” by easing up on strict social distancing restrictions, warns The University of Western Australia’s Professor Jon Watson, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.
Researchers at The University of Western Australia have been awarded more than $17 million in federal funding for 11 research projects, including $236,437 to design a suite of tools, resources and guidelines to support principals, school counsellors and teachers respond to students’ social and emotional wellbeing and mental health needs.
What a delight to meet with UWA 2025 future scientists Noah and Claire.
Nobel Laureate Professor Barry Marshall met with junior scientists Noah and Claire to talk about science, engineering and problem solving. Noah shared his book review of "How to Win a Nobel Prize" and demonstrated that he's quite the Marie Curie fan. And Claire too had some interesting suggestions following her recent egg drop experiment.
We hope to see these students in the lab soon, making their own scientific discoveries!
Another exciting week of ACTION with the Barry Marshall MicroBlitz Interns.
A big shout out to the teachers and students at Peter Moyes Community School (Mindarie) and Halls Head College (Halls Head) for allowing the interns to test out their science activities. Keep an eye out for upcoming news about the interns' trip to Kalgoorlie!
Congratulations to Dr Josephine Muir and the Noisy Guts Team - winner of the 'Best in the West' pitch event. The prize was awarded by the Licensing Executives Society of Australia and New Zealand (LESANZ Inc).
An exciting collaboration has been launched between two innovative UWA Research Centres, The Marshall Centre for Infectious Diseases Research and Training (School of Biomedical Sciences) and MicroBlitz (School and Agriculture and Environment). The UWA 2019 Barry Marshall MicroBlitz Internship has provided eight enthusiastic female science students with an internship placement and is generously funded by the WA Government’s Department of Jobs, Training, Science and Innovation (JTSI) and is administered by the Marshall Centre and MicroBlitz project teams.
Congratulations to the team of five Year 10 students from Como Secondary College - finalists in the 2018 WA Young Innovator of the Year Awards.Professor Barry Marshall was on hand at the 2018 Innovator of the Year award night to congratulate the team for their innovative project - Skills Box.Th
Congratulations to Assoc/Prof Charlene Kahler and Shakeel Mowlaboccus on the acceptance of their paper on the structure of DsbD in Neisseria by the Journal of Biological Chemistry. This work has been completed as part of an ongoing collaboration with Assoc/Prof Begona Heras at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and Assoc/Prof Martin Scanlon Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences in Melbourne.
The paper will be the cover illustration for the October 2018 issue.
In 2005, Barry Marshall, an Australian gastroenterologist and researcher, shared the Nobel Prize in Medicine for the discovery that peptic ulcers are caused not by stress, as was commonly thought, but by a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori. (Marshall, the director of the Marshall Centre for Infectious Diseases Research and Training, at the University of Western Australia, proved this in part by ingesting H.
Last night, UWA Noisy Guts team member Dr Mary Webberley won the CSIRO Female Breakthrough Scientist Award for her dedication, commitment and leadership throughout the ON-Accelerate program. The award recognises a female participant on the ON Accelerate program who demonstrates leadership, tenacity and results.
The Breakout Female Scientist Award provides access to the new SBE Australia's E3 program (an offshoot from the Springboard Enterprises Australia Accelerator Program) and most importantly, connections to their impressive alumni network.
Future Nobel Prize winner Mary hopes to one day find a cure for Parkinsons. This week, Mary has been getting tips from Nobel Laureate UWA Professor Barry Marshall. In the lead up to the launch of the book "How to Win a Nobel Prize", Mary and Barry have been out and about on ABC 720 Radio with Gillian O'Shaunessy and 6PR with Gareth Parker.
A sincere thank you to Dr Dev Segarajasingam, Dr Hooi Ee and all of the administrative staff, nurses and doctors at the Department of Gastroenterology (G75) at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital.
You have been such accommodating hosts of Professor Barry Marshall and his helicobacter patient clinic for the last decade. We have greatly appreciated your professionalism, flexibility, friendliness and patience. We will miss you!
The Noisy Guts Project is one of 10 research teams across Australia to be selected for CSIRO's ON Accelerate4 program.
The Marshall Centre's Noisy Guts Project Team is thrilled to be selected onto CSIRO's national sci-tech program - a 12-week, full time accelerator that brings together the experience and expertise of established researchers, entrepreneurs and inspiring mentors.
Selection was tough, following a competitive two-day bootcamp in Sydney.
Members of the Noisy Guts Project team were delighted to participate in CSIRO's ON Accelerate Bootcamp, 29-30th November in Sydney. With a high barrier to entry, the team were immensely proud to get through to Bootcamp - a 2-day challenge designed to select teams for the 12-week accelerator program.
19 teams from CSIRO and 9 universities working on some of the most exciting research ideas in the country were involved.
The take-away lessons from the Noisy Guts Project team were:
