Wednesday 22
16:00 - SEMINAR - Animal mirrors and mirror optics : This seminar is part of the Centre for Water Research seminar series. More Information
Animals are often highly reflective - the skin of silvery fish and the eye shine of a cat are familiar examples. But animals make mirrors in a way very different from us: they cannot deposit metal films and, instead, rely on arranging stacks of transparent materials to make their reflectors.

16:00 - SEMINAR - CMCA Seminar Series:"Hacking the Environment of Living Cells" More Information
Living cells possess an exquisite ability to sense and respond to physical information in their microenvironment. This ability plays a key role in many fundamentally important physiological and pathological processes. I will describe our work utilizing a variety of strategies to use physical cues (...)
Monday 27
12:00 - EVENT - Raine Lecture: The best laid schemes of airway repair : Dr Adam Giangreco Website | More Information
Chronic airway diseases including COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and lung cancer are leading causes of worldwide mortality with annual healthcare costs of billions of pounds. Despite this, there have been only a few therapeutic advances in these conditions over the past 20 years (...)
Tuesday 28
13:00 - SEMINAR - “Combined molecular and cellular therapies promote the regeneration of adult retinal ganglion cell axons” : School of Anatomy, Physiology & Human Biology Seminar Series Website | More Information
The Seminar: The mature CNS has limited intrinsic capacity for repair after injury. I will summarize results from the lab over the past 10 years that have quantified the effects of various pharmacotherapy and gene therapy regimes on the survival and regenerative capacity of injured adult retinal (...)
Wednesday 29
16:00 - SEMINAR - Long-term ecosystem development and terrestrial plant diversity : This seminar is part of the Centre for Water Research seminar series. Website | More Information
Over tens of thousands of years, soils gradually lose plant nutrients, especially phosphorus (P). This long-term process of soil formation, which strongly influences vegetation and ecosystem processes, can only be studied by using natural gradients of soil age – also called ‘soil chronosequences’ (...)

12:00 - EVENT - UWA Staff Sports Fun Day : There is a time for work...and a time for play! Website | More Information
UWA Staff Sports Fun Day is a day on campus for staff and postgraduate students to get together and participate in sport and activity. This year's theme is Brazil - be loud, be colourful and join in - up to 1000 participants expected throughout the day.

Get Involved: Contact your Team (...)

9:00 - COURSE - R Basics : A Statistics Short Course Website | More Information
R is a free and extremely powerful language and software environment for statistical computing, data analysis, and graphics. The course is designed for those who have no experience with R, but have a basic understanding of statistics. The course will include: Introduction to R: How to install R on (...)
Friday 14
9:00 - EVENT - Reduce Food Waste Forum : The theme of the Forum is “Waste in Food Value Chains: Opportunities for Technological, Policy and R&D Innovations for waste minimization and utilization”. Website | More Information
We invite you to register and attend a “Reduce Food Waste Forum” on 14 November 2014 at the Kim Beazley Lecture Theatre at Murdoch University.

Murdoch University, Curtin University and The University of Western Australia are sponsors of this Forum.

The theme of the Forum is “ (...)

18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Conservation of Highly Migratory Marine Species: The Need to Integrate Physiology, Behavior and Ecology : Oceans Institute Public Lecture by Daniel Costa More Information
The conservation of upper trophic level marine vertebrates presents some unique challenges in that they can migrate over great distances, in some cases covering entire ocean basins. A critical component to their conservation is to assess their home range. However, this is only a first step, as (...)
Monday 24
13:00 - EVENT - Raine Lecture: Professor Phil Ainslie : New Concepts in the Regulation of Cerebral Blood Flow in Humans Website | More Information
Professor Phil Ainslie received his PhD from Liverpool John Moores University (UK) followed by postdoctoral research at the University of Calgary (Canada) and a Faculty appointment at the University of Otago (NZ). Phil is currently Professor and Research Chair at The University of British Columbia (...)
Tuesday 25
8:45 - COURSE - An Introduction to statistics using SPSS - a 3 day course Website | More Information
The aim of this course is to introduce you to basic statistics. It will cover descriptive statistics (means and standard deviations); data exploration; basic categorical data analysis; simple linear regression and basic analysis of variance (ANOVA). The statistical package SPSS will be used to (...)
Wednesday 26
18:00 - EVENT - Raine Lecture: Testing the Limits of the Human Brain : Public Lecture presented by Professor Phil Ainslie Website | More Information
Relative to its size, the brain is the most oxygen-dependent organ in the body, but many pathophysiological and environmental processes may either cause or result in an interruption to its oxygen supply. Remarkable feats, however, have been achieved where the human brain has survived extremely low (...)

13:00 - SEMINAR - Trade-offs and Blind Alleys: Molecular Evolution of Vision in Sensory Specialists : Animal Biology Seminar Series More Information
Among mammals, bats are one of the most speciose and diverse of the mammalian orders: with a remarkable range of habitat use, behaviour and diet. Contrary to folklore, bats are not blind; some have large eyes and excellent eyesight (Pteropodidae), whereas others rely mainly on echolocation and have (...)

Thursday 05
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 (...)

Tea, coffee, and biscuits will be provided.
Thursday 12
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 (...)
Tuesday 17
13:00 - SEMINAR - Postgraduate Update Seminar : Joyce Ong: Contrasting environmental drivers of adult and juvenile growth in marine fish: implications for the effects of climate change AND Beverly Oh: Understanding drivers of shark and ray biogeography on a continental scale across the tropics More Information
