We're very pleased to have Dr. Kate Parham join us this past month, coming all the way from Adelaide, Australia.
Kate recently completed her PhD in Vascular Biology at the Centre for Cancer Biology, studying the control of blood vessel formation and differentiation of endothelial cells - the cells that line the insides of blood vessels.
She is joining us here at Western to use multiphoton intravital microscopy to visualise, in real time, the interactions between different immune cells within lymph nodes. We also expect her to help us down a few pints at the bar and teach us the rules for Aussie-rules football.
