Congratulation to Marnie for being awarded a Partnership Grant

Congrats to Marnie and all the team for being awarded a 2019 Partnership Enabling Grant Scheme (PEGS) from the University of South Australia. The project will bring together the expertise of the group in isolating rare circulating fetal cells with that of Professor Jiuyong Li (Professor of Computer Science at the School of Information Technology and Mathematical Science of the University of South Australia) and Dr Thuc  Le (Bioinformatics, University of South Australia).

The project is entitled “A novel approach to better understand preeclampsia molecular disease aetiology” and will develop new methodologies and achieve proof-of-principle for transcriptomic analysis of circulating fetal cells.


7th MolecularDx Europe – 6th – 9th May Lisbon

Only a few days before the 7th MolecularDx Europe and what an exciting conference this will be.

See our invited talk reporting NIPDx technology to isolate circulating fetal trophoblastic cells in the “Enabling Technologies for Circulating Biomarkers” symposium.

About Molecular Diagnostics Europe

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Seventh International Molecular Diagnostics Europe event will move to a larger venue for 2019 – the Lisbon Marriott Hotel – from 6-9 May. This meeting provides a nexus for diagnostic developers in academia and industry as well as end users in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sector to gain a comprehensive picture of molecular diagnostics in the prenatal, oncology, infectious disease, point-of-care, and liquid biopsy fields, plus new coverage of biomarkers for immunotherapy and companion diagnostics for immuno-oncology. This exciting area has attracted attendance of over 400 delegates to learn what novel technologies, platforms and applications are emerging that will impact future healthcare delivery and pharmaceutical research. Join us this spring at this expanding event at the epicenter of diagnostics.
