The Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute, one of the largest global research hubs for regenerative medicine and stem cell biology. It will be held on Tuesday, 6 August, from 5:30pm to 8:30pm, located at 15 Innovation Walk, Monash University, Clayton, 3800. Registration is essential as places are strictly limited. To secure your place, please visit the registration link below.
Located at Monash University, Clayton, the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) is one of the first and largest regenerative medicine facilities in the world. The institute is thriving international hub of cutting-edge research - including exciting stem cell biology; animals with amazing regenerative abilities; and fantastic fluorescence microscopy.
Regenerative medicine has the potential to treat a multitude of illnesses and diseases: heart disease, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, muscular dystrophy, Alzheimer’s, and more. ARMI is at the forefront and wants to share the exciting journey towards preventing aging and restoring health. On this event, ARMI researchers will take you behind-the-scenes to explore our labs and facilities, interact with our cells and experiments, and importantly, explain the science behind the medicine.
This event will involve tours of 2 specified research stations within ARMI.
Participants are to choose one of two circuit tours upon registration:
1. Fluorescence and Fish
Monash Micro-imaging microscopy facility – Learn how we use fluorescence to watch regeneration in action
Fishcore zebrafish facility – See where we house and breed zebrafish, fish with huge regenerative potential
Aquacore shark and axolotl facility – Learn why we have reef sharks and salamanders to study limb regeneration
2. Cells and Chicks
Immune cells in regeneration – Learn how reprogramming the body’s defence system may help improve health & regeneration
The heart of the matter – See how we’re using genetics and computational analysis to understand cardiac regeneration
Chicks – Learn why quails, genetics and imaging techniques can help us better understand development and regeneration
Tours will run for approx. 1 hour and depart every 15 minutes.
First tour departs 6:15pm, last tour departs 7:30pm.
This event also includes an expo in The Atrium for the entire duration of the evening, with fun interactive science displays and ample opportunities to chat one-on-one with researchers to have all your regenerative medicine questions answered!
We advise that participants avoid bringing bags larger than a small handbag with them, as they will not be able to be taken along with them on tours due to safety reasons. Participants can leave large bags in the Atrium area, but do so at their own risk.
This is a free event, however entry is available only through registration.
