The Haematology Micro-Platforms group in the Australian Centre for Blood Diseases is a multidisciplinary group focused on the development of novel lab-on-a-chip, microfluidic, and sensor systems in conjunction with basic research focussed microfluidic platforms.

Key research areas are clinical haematology diagnostics, automated microfluidic drug screening systems, and fundamental research into blood platelet mechanotransduction.

Due to the multidisciplinary nature of the research, they collaborate with a number of groups across clinical, biomedical, industrial and engineering disciplines.

Concussion sustained during collision sports including AFL and rugby, and its effects on players, is a growing issue in Australia but research into the subject is limited and lacks consensus, a paper by Monash University Department of Neuroscience researchers has found.

First author PhD student Georgia Symons said the review, which appeared recently in the Journal of Neurotrauma, found that most literature on the topic predominantly looked at North American contact sports such as ice hockey and NFL, and also European sport.
