High-throughput DNA sequencing facility at James Cook University

Indicative Funding
$167,990
Summary
Many JCU projects underpinned by high-throughput DNA sequencing technologies require immediate direct local access for efficiency and quality assurance. Currently due to the tyranny of distance accessing high-throughput sequencing significantly increases turnaround time and can place valuable and unrecoverable samples to problems associated with reliable freighting and transport of material from infectious disease agents. Therefore it is essential that a high-throughput sequencing facility is established in northern Australia that can service the region and that allows rapid turnaround times, flexibility in services available including customisation, the ability to run pilot projects on small scales and alleviates biosecurity concerns.

Therapeutic potential of hookworm secreted molecules for the treatment of human autoimmune diseases

Indicative Funding
$299,564 over 4 years
Summary
Allergic and autoimmune diseases have a long-term impact on human health and cause substantial suffering in developed countries. Recent studies have provided evidence for the role/s of intestinal parasites in suppression of immunological disorders; however, treatment with living parasites is unfeasible. In the present research, advanced post-genomic technologies will be employed to identify, characterise and produce immunologically active parasite proteins, and test their role/s in the modulation of the immune response of mouse models of autoimmune diseases. The outcomes will set a basis for the identification of parasite proteins that are responsible for the suppression of pro-inflammatory immune responses.
