Another brick in the celiac wall

New research by Imaging CoE immunologists, based at the Monash Biomedicine
Discovery Institute, adds another brick to the wall in discovering the
immune triggers for celiacs disease. Hugh Reid and Jan Petersen, have been
working on imaging and figuring out the mechanisms of celiac disease for
over six years. Their recent finding provides a framework for designing
drugs to interfere with our immune system which, in the future, will
hopefully give celiac disease sufferers some relief.

Immune cell development secrets revealed

Melbourne researchers have made a major breakthrough in understanding how
our immune system produces key infection fighting cells called
mucosal-associated invariant T cells or MAIT cells. MAIT cells make up a
large portion of immune cells in the human body, yet until recently, their
function has been a mystery. Recent studies at the University of Melbourne,
Monash University and University of Queensland found that MAIT cells detect
and respond to a vitamin produced by bacteria, an indication of infection.

Communicating science with peers from different disciplines

Scientists and other researchers must be able to communicate with a wide
range of audiences. As teams become more and more cross-disciplinary,
researchers must learn to communicate with their peers in different
disciplines without any loss in precision of data or loss of rigour in
their arguments. To enhance our researchers skills in this tricky business
we enlisted Dr Judy Ford to run workshops at each of the nodes.
