    The emerging field of nanomedicine holds great potential for biomedical discovery and for new forms of treatment for diseases such as heart conditions and cancer. Nanoparticles can fly under the radar of the immune system, which would otherwise identify them as foreign and destroy them, to reach their intended target. They can be used, for example, to efficiently transport a drug to the specific site of disease.

    But because the field is so young the possible side-effects of sending these tiny structures into the human body are still unknown.

    Congratulations Eric Chow and Kit Fairley on GSK Immunisation Grant!

    Congratulations to Dr Eric Chow and Professor Kit Fairley, of the Melbourne Sexual Health Centre, on winning the GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Immunisation Grant award!

    The award was announced at the Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA) 16th Immunisation Conference in Adelaide on 6 June.

    The grant will be used to improve hepatitis A knowledge and vaccination coverage among gay/bisexual men.

    Honours and upwards at CCS: Jake Valentine shares his experience

    Jake Valentine receiving his award for highest aggregate mark
    in Monash University's BBiomedSc(Hons) degree in 2017
    Congratulations to Jake Valentine, who was the recipient of the Bachelor of Biomedical Science Honours Prize a few weeks ago for the highest aggregate mark in the Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Honours) degree!

    Jake completed his thesis in 2017 at Central Clinical School (CCS). It was titled: Population-based analysis of the disease burden and hospitalisation costs of invasive fungal disease among patients with haematological malignancies in Victoria, 2005 - 2016.

    Participants sought: Complex Trauma Disorder (formerly known as Borderline Personality Disorder)

    Participants wanted for a study on treating symptoms of complex
    trauma disorder (aka borderline personality disorder)
    Participants wanted for the Alison Project: A randomised double-blind placebo controlled investigation of adjunctive memantine in the treatment of symptoms of complex trauma disorder (also known as borderline personality disorder)

    Early life trauma is causally implicated in borderline personality disorder (BPD) and there is strong support for the notion that BPD overlaps clinically with disorders of complex post-traumatic stress.
