Postdoctoral Researcher at the La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science and the WEHI (Ivan Poon and Edwin Hawkins laboratories). Georgia completed her PhD at La Trobe University in 2019. Her research focuses on the death, disassembly and clearance of apoptotic cells in models of cancer such as leukemia and solid tumours.
Laboratory head at the La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science. Ivan completed his PhD in 2009 followed by a postdoc at the University of Virginia and established his lab at La Trobe University in 2014. His research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanism of dying cell disassembly and the implication of this process in intercellular communication and cell clearance.
Postdoctoral researcher in the Ubiquitin Signalling Division at WEHI, with the Grant Dewson and Michael Lazarou laboratories. Tahnee completed her PhD in 2021 at Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, under the supervision of Prof Ben Kile, Dr Kate McArthur, Dr Dominic De Nardo, and Prof Mike Ryan. Her research investigates the fate of mitochondria during apoptosis and the mechanisms that prevent mtDNA induced inflammation during cell death.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow at La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science under A/Prof Ivan Poon. Amy’s research is focused on the mechanisms and functions of extracellular vesicles derived from apoptotic cells. Currently, Amy is investigating the roles of endothelial cell-derived apoptotic bodies in the context of vascular inflammation and cell clearance.
Postdoctoral researcher in the Inflammasome lab under Prof Kate Schroder at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience, UQ. Caroline’s PhD (2017-2021) focused on the cell biology of pyroptosis (inflammatory cell death). Caroline is continuing her PhD research into novel properties of inflammasome signalling and exploring their as-yet underappreciated roles in acute and chronic diseases.
SNSF Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Immunology at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience at The University of Queensland. Dr. Burgener completed her PhD investigating the cytoprotective role of Serpinb1 and Serpinb6 in neutrophils under supervision of PD Dr. Charafa Benarafa at the University of Bern, Switzerland and has over 10 years of research experience with the main focus on rodent in vivo inflammation models. Her current research involves understanding how caspase-1 drives inflammatory diseases and if targeting caspase-1 in diseases such as non-alcoholic steatohepatitis and Alzheimer’s disease comes at the cost of increased susceptibility to infection.
Postdoctoral Researcher at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Centre, Harvard Medical School, working on cancer cell signalling, metabolism, and death decisions. Tash recently completed his PhD at Mater Research (University of Queensland, Hooper Cancer Biology lab), where his work focused on understanding and targeting the metabolic underpinnings of ferroptosis in cancer.
Final year PhD student at the Centre for Innate Immunity and Infectious Diseases, Hudson Institute of Medical Research, guided by the supervision of Dr. Jaclyn Pearson and Dr. Kate Lawlor. Maddie's research focuses on the role of programmed cell death and inflammation in regulating host responses to intracellular bacteria, and how these may be altered or exploited by gastrointestinal pathogens such as Salmonella.
