Current research in the Cell Biology Lab at CMP include the application of super-resolution microscopy, automated image analysis and microfabrication to understanding the regulation of cell polarity, and the role of cell polarity in cell fate decisions important to immunity and cancer. The projects all build upon well established connections between the CMP and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
Skills required: project variously involve a diverse mix of skills from photonics expertise, molecular and cell biology, software development, computer modeling. Contact the project supervisors for more details on potential projects. Information on the Peter Mac research group can be found at http://www.petermac.org/Research/ImmuneSignalling
