Funding for the Materials for Brain (M4B) initiative

Congratulation to Prof Christine Selhuber and the other CIs of the Materials for Brain (M4B) initiative for being awarded a grant from the the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation). We look forward to collaborate in this exciting project as partner investigators.

Grant application to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

A funding application has been submitted to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to support the collaboration with Professor Una Ryan from Murdoch University and Drs Paul Monis and Brendon Kind at SA Water. Fingers crossed !

Kyall’s paper to be published in J3M

Congratulation to Kyall for his upcoming article “Low-temperature bonding process for the fabrication of hybrid glass-membrane organ-on-a-chip devices” in the Journal of Micro/Nanolithography, MEMS, and MOEMS.  

This paper reports on the work Kyall did during his visit at the University of Tokyo on the development of a low-temperature bonding process compatible with the fabrication of glass-based organs on a chip microdevices.

ARC Discovery grant success

Fantastic news today as our ARC Discovery grant has been funded. The project aims at overcoming the technological and conceptual challenges that are
currently preventing the implementation of silicon field-effect transistor biosensors and builds on our successful collaboration with Prof Andreas Offenhaeusser at the Forschungszentrum Juelich GmbH.

Excellent outcomes overall for the Future Industries Institute. Unfortunately with a success rate of 17%, many excellent grants were again not funded. More info the ARC web-site.
