Well done to Elise on the acceptance of her first publication as lead author. Elise's work, detailing the role of NFIX in spinal cord development, was recently accepted to Developmental Biology. Congratulations also to Lachlan and Danyon, who contributed to this work.

Congratulations to Diana, Lachlan and Oressia, who contributed to a paper recently accepted to Brain and Neuroscience Advances. This work was performed in collaboration with the Richards lab at the QBI. Great job all.


Alex recently had a paper accepted for publication in the journal Methods.  This work details her work on the prediction of target genes from transcription factor binding data. Well done Alex!


The lab team, along with wonderful our collaborators Dr. Fiona Simpson (Diamantina Institute), Dr. Glen Boyle (QIMR) and Dr. Ben Panizza (PA Hospital), was fortunate enough be awarded an Enabling Grant from the Australian Skin and Skin Cancer Research Centre for our work in developing an in vitro model for studying perineural invasion of squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck. We look forward to working with a PhD student in Fiona’s lab, Priscila Oliveira De Lima, who will be driving this work.

Congratulations to James and Sabrina, both of whom were accepted into training courses run through the Neuroscience School of Advanced Studies. Both got to spend a week in Northern Italy learning about the latest techniques in neuroscience. Sabrina also got a travel scholarship from the Graduate School to fund her trip.


Well done to Lachlan and Tracey, who contributed to a recently published study investigating the expression of NFI proteins within the adult brain. Images from the paper made the front cover of the August 1st 2017 issue of The Journal of Comparative Neurology

Elise recently attended the recent EMBL Australia PhD course held at Monash University. Places were scarce for this, so well done Elise!


Congratulations to Lachlan, who recently graduated with a PhD, and who has taken up a prestigious, 4-year post doctoral position at the Crick Institute in London in the lab of Prof. Francois Guillemot. Lachlan’s most recent work on adult neurogenesis was recently published in Developmental Dynamics
