This week we talk science with a conversation with Dr. Gabby Watson and Dr. Erica Tandori from the Biomedicine Discovery Institute at Monash University about an open day at the end of May specifically designed for people who are blind or have low vision. The exhibition will include tactile, sound, olfactory and low vision accessible […]

Invariant natural killer T (iNKT) cells are powerful weapons our body’s immune systems count on to fight infection and combat diseases like cancer, multiple sclerosis, and lupus. Finding ways to spark these potent cells into action could lead to more effective cancer treatments and vaccines. While several chemical compounds have shown promise stimulating iNKT cells in […]

“If the stomach be irretentive of the food and if it pass through undigested and crude, and nothing ascends into the body, we call such persons coeliacs.” Although coeliac disease is fairly common, affecting about one in 70 people of European descent, it’s still challenging to diagnose and treat. It’s best known for its classic digestive symptoms – […]
