Queensland Eye Institute is excited by our recent collaboration with the George E. Palade University of Medicine, Pharmacy, Science and Technology (UMFST) of Târgu Mureș in Romania.
Professor Traian Chirila, Professor Mark Radford, and Dr. Shuko Suzuki from QEI, working with a team of UMFST researchers (including two PhD students), have started on a series of projects that focus on understanding human tissue and their role in novel therapeutic strategies proposed by our scientists for various pathological conditions.
As part of the agreement, QEI has set up a laboratory, equipped with scientific instrumentation dedicated entirely to these projects. The equipment included the BioTester 5000 (CellScale, Canada), the only tool allowing biaxial evaluation of biological tissues.
We look forward to bringing you further news about this partnership in upcoming editions.
