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.
Final year PhD student at Monash University, under the supervision of Prof Benjamin Kile and Dr Dominic De Nardo. Tahnee’s project investigates the fate of mitochondria during apoptosis and the mechanisms that prevent mtDNA induced inflammation during cell death.
Postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience (The University of Queensland, Prof. Kate Schroder laboratory). Her work focuses on inflammasomes – molecular signalling platforms that engage in a proinflammatory 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.
