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 at Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, with Dr Kate McArthur, Prof Mike Ryan, and Prof Ben Kile. Tahnee recently completed her PhD and 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.
Postdoctoral researcher in the Inflammasome lab under Prof Kate Schroder at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience, UQ. Amy focuses on inflammasomes – molecular signalling platforms that engage in a pro-inflammatory form of cell death called pyroptosis. Amy’s work aims to define the molecular mechanisms involved in inflammasome activation and signalling.
Postdoctoral researcher in the Cell Death and Inflammatory Signalling Laboratory at the Hudson Institute of Medical Research under Dr Kate Lawlor. Mary completed her PhD in 2015 at Monash University followed by two postdocs in NZ and Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School. Her research focuses on the role of cell death regulators during inflammatory disease and 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.
