Tuesday 16 June 2020, 3:00pm – 4:00pm (Book now)

Learn about electron microscopy for biological – and non-biological – samples this Microscopy Day. The Melbourne Advanced Microscopy Facility offers electron microscopy for researchers who need high resolution images of biological samples like tissues and cells, and also of non-biological materials like metals and crystals. More information and registration.

Wednesday 17 June

Webinar: Peptide synthesis and protein analysis with Melbourne Protein Characterisation (MPC), Bio21

Wednesday 17 June 2020, 11:00am – 12:00pm (Book now)

Melbourne Protein Characterisation is a diverse platform for investigating protein quality control, molecular interactions and structural analysis. The platform incorporates as part of the Australia Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) Facility for Innovative Cancer Drug Discovery and forms part of the drug discovery pipeline that connects Bio21 platform together.

Protein discovery plays one of the important role on drug/vaccine development as human disease treatment. Among all of the different research technologies, synthesizing a peptide and studying the protein properties have been widely used on tackling the mechanism of the targeted drug/vaccine. This webinar will share with you information about how to make a peptide using peptide synthesizer and how to study your protein using analytical ultracentrifuge. More information and registration.

Webinar: From stem cells to solar cells – The many applications of the Materials Characterisation and Fabrication Platform (MCFP)

Wednesday 17 June 2020, 1:00pm – 2:00pm (Book now)

The Materials Characterisation and Fabrication Platform (MCFP) supports many disciplines; from mining, to drug delivery, stem cells to solar cells, art conservation to nanofabrication and everything in between.

This webinar aims to provide an overview of the 30+ capabilities available in the MCFP as well as a more detailed introduction of some of the core instruments. The MCFP has six technical experts that can assist you with your materials characterisation requirements; training, project/experiment design, or fee-for-service materials analysis. More information and registration.

Webinar: How to Create Research Impact with Data Visualisation and Infographics

Wednesday 17th June, 1:00pm-2:00pm (Book now)

Introductory webinar on the principles of effective data visualisation, Research Summary Infographics, and design elements. No design experience required. More information and registration.

Wednesday 17 June 2020, 3:00pm – 4:00pm (Book now)

The Melbourne Trace Analysis for Chemical, Earth and Environmental Sciences (TrACEES) Platform is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art equipment, unique surface and chemical analysis, high quality technical support and expertise for research and industry in multi-disciplinary sciences together with ongoing training of research students and staff. More information and registration.

Thursday 18 June

Webinar: Target discovery using high throughput protein expression profiling – Reverse Phase Protein Array Platform (RPPA)

Thursday 18 June 2020,11:00am – 12:00pm (Book now)

Get an overview of high throughput Reverse Phase Protein Array Platform (RPPA) screening technology, methodologies and applications. The Reverse Phase Protein Array Platform (RPPA) / Victorian Centre for Functional Genomics (VCFG) platform operates a ‘researcher driven – staff assisted’ model where your small or large-scale screening projects are supported by a team of 7 highly experienced scientists who work alongside you to deliver your project from assay development to analysis. We also support access and SOPs for a large number of functional genomics reagents and techniques and we’re always keen to discuss new technologies and applications. More information and registration.

Webinar: Melbourne Histology Platform

Thursday 18 June 2020,12:00pm – 1:00pm (Book now)

Microscopy is synonymous with research, but before biological samples can be visualized under a microscope they must first be specially prepared and stained – this is the process of histology. This webinar will provide a brief overview of the fundamental elements of the histology process, use case studies to illustrate the diverse applications of histology in research, and demonstrate how the Melbourne Histology Platform can help researchers obtain optimal sample preparation and staining.
