Welcome to the CNBP

At the Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP) we’re driving the development of new light-based imaging and sensing tools, which can measure in real time, the complex chemical and molecular processes, taking place in and around cells in the living body. Bringing together world-leading expertise in photonics, biochemistry, physics, medicine, engineering and materials science, our innovative work aims to truly understand the ‘machinery of life’ particularly in the key areas of chronic pain (neuroscience), heart disease (cardiology) and reproduction (embryology).

IVF grant success

26 April 2017: CNBP Chief Investigator, A/Prof Jeremy Thompson has received $7000 in travel support from the Global Connections Fund Priming Grants initiative. The grant will fund travel to the USA to visit cattle IVF units with the aim of learning how they have made a successful business of in vitro produced embryos, and where […]

Social media for research engagement

21 April 2017: CNBP’s Dr Hannah Brown (pictured), together with Prof Ben Mol, the University of Adelaide and Melinda Cruz, CEO and Founder of Miracle Babies Foundation, believe that social media interaction and scientific activity should go hand-in-hand. They argue that increased social engagement by scientists with collaborators, the media, governing and funding bodies, government […]

Enhanced microscopy

5 April 2017: Dr Antony Orth, CNBP Research Fellow has attended the ‘OSA Biophotonics Congress: Biomedical Optics’ in San Diego, 2-5 April 2017. During the event he undertook two presentations: ‘Towards Dictionary-Enhanced Microscopy’ and ‘Bleaching-Assisted Multichannel Microscopy’. Congress details are available online.

New sensing methods for embryos

2 April 2017: A/Prof Jeremy Thompson, CNBP Chief Investigator, has given an invited talk at  the 7th Congress of the Asia Pacific Initiative on Reproduction (ASPIRE 2017) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on the 2nd April 2017. The Congress is the largest clinical reproductive medicine meeting in the Asia-Pacific region with A/Prof Thompson’s talk titled, “New sensing methods […]

New PhD candidate Yuan Qi Yeoh

30 March 2017: CNBP welcomes its latest PhD candidate Yuan Qi Yeoh who is working on controlling the structure and activity of an antimicrobial peptide using an azobenzene photoswitch. Supervised by CNBP Chief Investigator Prof Andrew Abell at the University of Adelaide, Yuan Qi will design and synthesise peptides that mimic Gramicidin S, incorporating azobenzene to turn […]
