Building connections with German researchers

By Hudson Institute communications

An award from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Advanced Molecular Imaging is helping a PhD student drive the future of Australian science and innovation.

Holly Ung, from Professor Marcel Nold and Associate Professor Claudia Nold’s Research Group, is taking part in a 12-week research internship in Germany at the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology IZI, at the Department of Cell-free and Cell-based Bioproduction.

The placement assists students establish international relationships and develop new skills at the beginning of their careers.

Holly said a focus of the internship is to analyse therapeutic treatments using cell-free protein synthesis technology, with the goal of transferring biomedical research to the clinic. The Institute is renowned for its development of therapeutic treatments and first-class imaging technologies, which Holly said will be beneficial for her research.

“We have gained new insights into how cell-free protein synthesis technology can be applied to current protein synthesis techniques and functional analyses,” Holly said.

Cell-free protein synthesis

The production of protein using biological machinery, without the use of living cells.
