World class technology and talent battle cancer at the Centenary Institute
Date:11/26/2007

The Centenary Institute, one of Australias leading medical research institutes, unveiled a powerful microscope unlike any other in Australia today. Representing the cutting edge in medical technology and microscopy, the unique imaging features of the multiphoton microscope will enable scientists at the Centenary Institute unprecedented access to the secret workings of living tissues at the cellular and molecular level.

The Centenary Institute is equally excited about the arrival of Austrian Professor Wolfgang Weninger, one of only a handful of people in the world who specialises in using the multiphoton microscope in the immunology field to view immune responses in real-time in living tissue.

At the Centenary, Professor Weninger will lead a team of researchers to study the dynamics of the immune systems response to cancer and infectious diseases.

Professor Weninger said, Cancer is still a leading cause of death in Australia. There is a need to develop improved anti-cancer therapies based on the use of the bodys own resources - namely our immune system. This type of microscope is an outstanding tool to study how our bodies fight cancer both in early and advanced stages. If we can learn more about how our immune system attacks cancer cells directly in the context of intact tissues, we hope to develop improved immuno-therapies.

Using the multiphoton microscope, Professor Weningers team pioneered ground-breaking imaging models to record how the bodys defences fight tumours and infectious diseases. He has already astounded the medical community in Australia and the world by showing real-time videos of white blood cells invading and destroying cancer cells in living tissue. Centenarys Executive Director, Professor Mathew Vadas said, The arrival of Professor Weninger and the multiphoton microscope marks a new era in medical research for the Centenary Institute.
