16:00 - SEMINAR - CMCA Seminar Series: Tissue Engineering Approach Towards Scar Reduction Following Burn Injury More Information
Skin is the largest organ of human body. One of the major traumas to the skin is caused by burn injuries. Over a 170,000 people sustain burn injuries each year in Australia alone, of which majority are children. There are a number of possible treatments available clinically and their applicability depends on the extent of the injury. Current treatments are not only expensive but also have major limitations. Extensive work has been carried out to promote the healing process in such injuries however; the ever-arching problem of scar formation post healing is greatly overlooked. In this presentation a new tissue engineering approach will be discussed towards reduced scar wound healing. Different hybrid hydrogels and anti-scarring agents will be demonstrated as potential scaffold systems. Importance of cell motility will be highlighted along with cell proliferation to promote wound healing.

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.

13:00 - SEMINAR - TACTILE IMAGES: RAPID PROTOTYPING RENDERING 3-DIMENSIONAL MEDICAL IMAGING : School of Anatomy, Physiology & Human Biology Seminar Series More Information
The Seminar: Advances in scanning geometries, detectors and computer vision are providing increasing detail in medical imaging, including dynamic 3-dimensional (3D) rendering allowing the user to view 3D structures of interest on a monitor. However, the interface between computer vision and pattern recognition by the brain has limitations. For example, when examining tactile objects rapid changes in orientation in respect to a light source provides multiple images for the visual cortex to ‘render’ for pattern recognition. The capacity to handle an object also provides tactile information. These limitations to computer vision are well known and considerable effort is being directed at developing virtual reality systems where the operator is immersed in the computer image in attempt to provide enhanced perception. These systems are cumbersome, slow and expensive. An alternative is to construct an accurate tactile model of the structures of interest. This is now possible with the development of rapid protypying systems where volumes rendered from 3D medical images can be processed into tactile models. Models are portable, can be sterilised, and mechanically altered. These attributes make them most useful as surgical aides providing detailed diagnostic anatomical information, as a means to assist with surgical navigation and trialling surgical procedures. For these reasons the Cranio-Maxillo-Facial unit at Princess Margaret Hospital obtained a rapid prototyping technology since 2002. This technology coupled with 3D surface scanners, reverse engineering software and haptic virtual clay tools provides a comprehensive surgical planning facility. This facility is now providing planning support for complex craniofacial reconstructive procedures for both paediatric and adult patients. This presentation will outline some of the in-house developments and workflows employed from diagnostic imaging, virtual surgical planning through to intra-operative navigation illustrated by case studies.

The Speaker: Mark is a graduate of the School of Anatomy and Human Biology obtaining BSc (Hons) and MSc by research. His primary research focus is bone biology with particular emphasis on craniofacial dental-skeletal dynamics. For the past decade he has been establishing computer assisted surgical planning facility in the Cranio-Maxillo-Facial and Cleft Lip &Palate Units at Princess Margaret Hospital for Children. This facility is equipped with a range of 3-dimensional scanners; laser and optical stereophotogrammetry systems; haptic devices; 3D printer and polygon editing facilities. In consultation with oral-maxillo-facial and plastic & reconstructive surgeons Mark has developed workflows utilising these technologies to provide a comprehensive surgical planning facility that can render and fuse 3D medical images of different modalities to reverse engineer a 3D virtual patient, produce anatomical models, plan surgeries, design and manufacture patient specific surgical navigational aids. Most recently this facility has been developing spatially dense geometric morphometric synthesis of 3D faces that now can provide a statistical 3D rendering of normalisation of patient faces to be incorporated into the virtual patient environment to assist surgical planning.

ACADEMIC JOURNALS Journal of Business & Retail Management Research (JBRMR) JBRMR is a scholar and referred journal that provides as authoritative source of information for scholars, academics and professionals in the fields of business and retail management. For further information please visit at www.jbrmr.com

The International Journal of Business and Economic Development (IJBED) IJBED`s mission is to promote and publish research inquiring into the behaviour of business , their ways of upgrading themselves in response to changes in the environment and the way the policy framework is being developed to encourage them to expand in a rational manner.

BOOK PUBLICATION Globalisation Revisited: A Global Phenomenon under the Microscope Globalisation has become one of the watchwords of the latter Twentieth and early Twentieth First century. Whilst globalisation is written and talked about in a general sense this book seeks to take stock and reflect on the `era of globalisation’ through a series of regional case studies aimed at elucidating examples of globalisation in action. The book will begin with an attempt to define ‘globalisation’ as well as to give a brief history of the theoretical nature of globalisation along with schools of thought about the nature and purpose of the topic. It will also present a brief explanation of how globalisation itself has inadvertently assisted those individuals and organisations who are committed to containing or curtailing that which they refer to as globalisation.

ABRM announces a Call for Papers for the publication of a book entitled Globalisation Revisited: A global phenomenon under the microscope to be edited by Professor P.R.Banerjee and Dr P.R.Datta. Interested authors are invited to contribute chapter(s) in the book. For further details please click here
