|Lead researchers Dr Simon Royce and |
Associate Professor Chrishan Samuel.
A Monash University study co-led by the Central Clinical School’s Dr Simon Royce, which demonstrates that a new therapy developed through stem cell technology holds promise as a treatment for chronic asthma, has garnered considerable attention.
Monash scientists provided the experimental expertise to test Cynata Therapeutics' induced pluripotent stem cell-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in a model of experimental asthma.

|A designer molecule goes exactly where|
it is needed for protection against kidney
injury during transplantation.
Kidney ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) is common during transplantation, leading to compromised function in the kidney and increasing the chance of rejection of the new organ.
Now scientists in the Vascular Biology Group, Australian Centre for Blood Diseases, have refined a designer molecule that offers protection against IRI in research that may have translational significance to transplantation.
|A/Prof Judy de Haan has won a five-year|
Baker Institute fellowship
by Anne Crawford
Dietary antioxidants have captured the popular imagination as being necessary for good health but their benefit in fighting disease is still uncertain. Associate Professor Judy de Haan has devoted her career to studying the oxidative stress that antioxidants counter and says the answers are more complex than vitamins.
Associate Professor de Haan, who heads the Oxidative Stress Laboratory at the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute and holds an Honorary position at CCS, was recently awarded a five-year Baker Fellowship. She brings us up-to-date with the lab’s investigations and future research directions the Fellowship will support.
|Dr Eric Chow receiving the 2017 Dean's|
Award for Research Excellence (Early
Career) from Professor Christina Mitchell
Dr Chow completed his PhD at UNSW in 2014 and joined the Central Clinical School and Melbourne Sexual Health Centre as a postdoctoral research fellow.
His research mainly focuses on gonorrhoea and human papillomavirus with a wide range of aspects including clinical practice management, sexual health programs evaluation, and understanding the epidemic and related risk behaviours among high-risk populations. These research topics are of high public health relevance and important for policy decision and clinical management. Dr Chow has more than 80 publications since he joined CCS/MSHC.
|Amy Wilson at the 2017 CCS 3MT heat. She was runner up.|
Amy Wilson is a PhD student in the Department of Immunology and Pathology supervised by Professor Magdalena Plebanski. Amy completed a Bachelor of Science (Medical Bioscience) at Monash University. Amy has also completed an Honours degree looking at ovarian cancer biomarkers at the Hudson Institute of Medical Research.
