As users of the Australian Syncrotron facility in Melbourne gather for their annual meeting, Curtin Health Innovation Research Institute (CHIRI) researcher Dr Mark Hackett is shining a light on his research.

Mark is a speaker at the two-day Australian Synchrotron User Meeting 2018 on 22-23 November 2018 – an event proudly supported by CHIRI.

The meeting showcases some of the best research and investigations undertaken at the facility and provides its user community with updates on the latest developments and technical advances in synchrotron science.

Mark’s presentation is about the application of synchrotron science to his health science research, in particular his investigations into sulphur speciation in biological samples using medium energy X-rays.

Delegates received a dedicated flyer outlining how Mark and his fellow CHIRI researchers use the synchrotron facility to shed new light on age-associated diseases. Click here to download the flyer

CHIRI is also a supporter of the 5th WA Synchrotron Symposium, which will be held at Curtin University on Friday 30 November. The event will focus on current synchrotron-based research by WA scientists. Find out more on Eventbrite.
