17:30 - FREE LECTURE - Raine Lecture : Raine Visiting Professor Lecture - Strabismus and other eye motor disorders Website | More Information
Professor Engle’s research combines clinical, genetic, and molecular biological approaches to the study of strabismus (commonly referred to as 'misaligned eyes' or 'squint') and ocular motor neuron and axon development. As a paediatric neurologist, her research has focused primarily on a set of disorders referred to as the congenital cranial dysinnervation disorders. These are incomitant forms of strabismus in which primary gaze may be aberrant and one or both eyes are unable to move into one or multiple fields of gaze. These disorders can cause significant visual impairment and can be cosmetically disfiguring. Professor Engle's Lecture will discuss recent advances in causes, genetic diagnosis and treatments for these disorders.

His work there included identifying the neurodegenerative prion disease, kuru, and from 1977, building the Papua New Guinea Institute of Medical Research.

Michael will talk about the changes he witnessed during the transformation from a traditional lifestyle to the modern world.

Michael Alpers was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia in 2005 and Companion of the Papua New Guinean Order of the Star of Melanesia in 2008.

7:00 - COURSE - Clinical Group & Studio Pilates Available on Campus!! Website | More Information
Through the UWA Health & Rehabiliation Clinic a variety of Clinical Pilates options are now available to staff and general public!

Clinical Pilates is a form of physical exercise that focuses on posture, balance, control, strength, flexibility, and breathing. It incorporates mat and equipment based exercises to optimise function, improve fitness and aid the management or rehabilitation following pain or injury. Using the experitse of Physiotherapy and Exercise Physiology trained staff to tailor exercises, Clinical Pilates is able to ensure optimal gains whilst minimising risk of injury or aggravation.

Initial assessment may be required prior to starting classes. Sessions are available Mon-Fri at various times between 6am-6pm. Private Health Rebates May Apply.

16:30 - SEMINAR - CMCA Seminar: Quantitative MRI applications for investigating disease and monitoring the cellular uptake and biodistribution of nanoparticles and therapeutic drugs. More Information
MRI is an incredibly versatile imaging modality stemming from the wide range of approaches that can be applied to generate image contrast. While qualitative imaging is common in clinical MRI, increasingly quantitative methods capable of measuring molecular tissue properties are being exploited. In this seminar I will present an overview of my research focussing on the application of quantitative MRI approaches to measure and map the distribution of; 1) iron, fat and fibrosis in the body and 2) magnetic nanoparticles to enable cell tracking and biodistribution studies of therapeutic agents.

17:00 - PRESENTATION - WA Flow Meeting More Information
Please join us for this meeting of WA Flow, a Western Australian flow cytometry interest group. There will be presentations of applications, protocols, results, information and general discussion of current flow cytometry.

Thursday 06
10:00 - EVENT - CMCA Seminar: Applications of magnetic resonance: From crickets to cortical dysplasias More Information
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) based techniques have revolutionized chemical characterization of materials and non-invasive in-vivo diagnostics, with pioneers garnering Nobel Prizes in Chemistry for NMR spectroscopy, and in Medicine for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This seminar will begin with an overview of my experience in MR. Examples will be included from solid-state NMR spectroscopy, micro-MRI (hydrogen fuel cells, rheo-NMR), small animal MRI, and human MRI. In the latter portion of the seminar I will present some recent and interesting developments from the literature that aim to achieve novel MRI contrast linked to underlying micro-structure or biochemistry.
