SPIRITUS: (12-17) A Monthly update from the Respiratory Technology team at the WIMR.


This is the December 2017 newsletter from the RespiTech Group at the Woolcock Institute of Medical Research.

This month has seen members of the team travel to the UK to attend Drug Delivery to the Lung Conference. Jesse Xu presented a poster on TRPV channels and the group caught up with a number of long-term collaborators. Post conference the Dany and Paul travelled to Bath to attend a CDFS/Bath University Reunion and also caught up with long term linkage parters in Chippenham and Bath. 

Meanwhile back in Sydney, Prof Santo Scallia, from the University of Ferrara visited the team and was hosted by YY and Mali. Santo is a long term collaborator of the group and has co-supervised a number of PhD students and projects in the area of DPI therapy. Continuing the celebrations, the team celebrated the submission of Larissa Gomes Dos Reis PhD thesis this month. The team went out to celebrate Yasmin Shirmanesh and Sandra Grau Bartual who are leaving us after spending time undertaking research projects with us from the UK and New Zealand respectively.

Lastly, Merry Christmas to all the followers of the RespiTech team!
