Dr Shane and Dr Chromo ‘man’ the studio this week. With three guests including Dr Catherine Granger, an NHMRC Translating Research Into Practice Fellow at The University of Melbourne, and Head of Physiotherapy Research at Melbourne Health. Her research area of expertise is in physical activity and lung cancer. Also in the studio are Dr Tamsyn Ross and Dr Kathryn Spiers, who are industry support scientists with the Australian Synchrotron’s Beamline Industry Group (the BIG team). They come across a lot of research with real world applications as they encourage, educate and guide industry and commercial bodies in the use of the Synchrotron, and provide full scientific support to commercial projects taking place onsite. In news: small steps to recovering from spinal injuries using stem cells; Mars One update; helping the symptoms of autism with broccoli (well, a chemical found in broccoli).
