We can proudly announce the annual $25,000 Centenary Institute Lawrence Creative Prize is now open for applications. 

One of the most valuable assets Australians have is their innovative and creative approach to solving problems. Over the coming decades this creativity in biomedicine will become increasingly important to help maintain the health and wealth of our nation. The Centenary Institute Lawrence Creative Prize recognises and promotes the young biomedical researchers whose work will shape our future. 

The Prize of $25,000 is available for any biomedical researcher under 8 years postdoctoral, working in Australia, for work that was performed in Australia.

Please submit applications via this link: http://bit.ly/CILCP2014

Our skin researchers have created a world first 3D model, called the Skin Immune Atlas, which "takes us from something like a paper map to Google Street View".

Australian scientists are in a bid to starve melanoma cells and believe they have found a way to stunt the growth of melanoma by cutting off its food supply.

The idea is to prevent the amino acid glutamine from entering the melanoma cells, say the scientists from the University of Sydney and the Centenary Institute.

Unlike normal cells, melanoma and other cancers rely on amino acids rather than glucose for the energy they need to divide and grow...

What does pain look like? How does the brain develop and grow?

It’s been a big year for Michael Lovelace, a scientist who clearly has an eye for art. Imaging is central to medical research, and Michael’s images are not only scientifically important, but aesthetically powerful.

His ‘neural spiderwebs’ micrograph won the 2013 biennial NHMRC Science to Art Award and his ‘dawn of neurodevelopment’ was selected as one of the top ten images in the 2013 Australian Museum New Scientist Eureka Prize for Science Photography. It is now on display at Questacon, Canberra in the Small Objects, Big Impact Regenerative Medicine exhibition.
