16:00 - EVENT - CMCA Seminar Series: Computer-aided detection/diagnosis of breast cancer in multi-modal MRI More Information
A recent meta-study concluded that the use of computer-aided detection/diagnosis (CAD) "in breast MRI has little influence on the sensitivity and specificity of experienced radiologists and therefore their interpretation remains essential". In this talk I describe ongoing collaborative (...)

13:00 - SEMINAR - The role of mechanism in behavioural ecology: sex allocation as a paradigm : Animal Biology Seminar Series More Information
Much of behavioural ecology theory has been developed assuming little in the way of genetic or mechanistic detail. Indeed, no doubt much of the success of the behavioural ecology approach has come from providing general predictions about behaviour. However, behavioural ecologists are often exhorted (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - The Amazing Cavitation Bubble- from Ship Propellors to Medical Supertools : This seminar is part of the Centre for Water Research seminar series. Website | More Information
We generally think of bubbles as benign and harmless and yet they can manifest the most remarkable range of physical effects. Some of those effects are the stuff of our every day experience as in the tinkling of a brook or the sounds of breaking waves at the beach. But even these mundane effects (...)

12:00 - SEMINAR - Long term studies of mammal life history, sexual selection and conservation: insectivorous marsupials and Melanesian flying foxes. : Animal Biology Seminar Series. More Information
This talk will address two current research topics: evolutionary ecology of dasyurid marsupials, and conservation ecology of tropical mammals. In some genera of small insect-eating marsupials but in no other mammals, escalating stress hormones during the breeding season cause immune system collapse (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - CMCA Seminar Series: Highly Multiparametric Analysis with Mass Cytometry More Information
Mass cytometry marries the resolution, specificity and sensitivity of atomic stable isotope mass spectrometry to the high-throughput, single-cell analytical advantages of flow cytometry. By substituting molecular probes conjugated with stable isotope tags for fluorescence, a large increase is (...)
Thursday 19
17:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Soils and the ends of the Earth, and a few places in between : Hector and Andrew Stewart Memorial Lecture, by Professor David Hopkins, Dean of Agriculture, The Royal Agricultural University, England, UK Website | More Information
2015 is the International Year of Soils. So what? It has frequently been said that soils are the thin skin on the land surface upon which terrestrial life depends and which acts as a buffer between the atmosphere, the hydrosphere and the biosphere, as well as representing a significant reservoir of (...)

13:00 - SEMINAR - "The ups and downs of buoyancy control in sharks and rays; a view from ecology and evolution." : Animal Biology Seminar. More Information
Mid-water environments represent the largest habitable space on our planet, yet early vertebrate life evolved near the seabed of shallow seas. In order for early fishes to efficiently swim off the seabed and exploit pelagic environments, mechanisms to reduce submerged weight had to evolve. In (...)
