The 1967 Referendum 50 years on: an Indigenous Reflection

Thu, 25 May 2017 08:00:00 +0000

"History Speaks: Humanity’s Challenges” Public Lecture Series Presents: Professor John Maynard (University of Newcastle) introduced by Michael Aird (University of Queensland). The 1967 Referendum was a defining moment not just in Aboriginal history but in Australian history more generally. Within Aboriginal communities the euphoria of the 1967 Referendum result was overwhelming. But fifty years on it is difficult not to overlook the failure of successive Australian governments to take advantage of such a wonderful opportunity. Prof. Maynard’s discussion will look back across the past including the decade leading up to the Referendum and the five decades following the landslide result. What has changed for Aboriginal people? Where is the country today? 6.00 - 6.45pm: Refreshments & viewing of the exhibition, `The Dust Never Settles`, UQ Art Museum (#11) 7.00 - 8.30pm: Public Lecture, Room 212, Sir Llew Edwards Building (#14) Details for registration are available at:

Paula and Tony Kinnane Annual Lecture

Fri, 26 May 2017 08:00:00 +0000

Immerse and Explore: Scaling the wall between audience and performer Classical music can feel like a fortress. Cloaked in myth, buttressed by elitism, its walls may seem tall, impenetrable. Grammy Award winning musician Tim Munro explores the challenges and joys of stepping through the barrier between audience and performer, of inviting audiences to become enraptured listeners, engaged explorers and active participants.

IMB Seminar Series - Professor Jian Yang - Integrative analysis of omics data to predict gene ...

Fri, 26 May 2017 02:30:00 +0000

Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified a large number of genetic variants associated with human complex traits. However, genes or functional DNA elements through which these variants exert their effects on the traits are often unknown. I will present a method (called SMR) that integrates summary-level data from GWAS and eQTL studies to identify genes whose expression levels are associated with a trait. An application of the method to large data sets for five complex traits identifies 126 genes, of which 77 genes (~61%) are not the nearest genes of the GWAS top SNPs. I will then show how this method can be extended to include other types of omics data to pinpoint the functional elements where the causal variants are possibly located. The method and results are helpful for the design of follow-up functional studies to understand the genetic basis of complex disease.

IMB Seminar Series - Associate Professor Sarah-Jane Dawson

Fri, 02 Jun 2017 02:30:00 +0000

Cell-free circulating DNA containing tumor-specific sequences can be identified in the plasma of cancer patients, providing a liquid biopsy alternative to tissue biopsies for monitoring cancer genetic changes over time. Circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) analysis can allow real-time monitoring of tumor dynamics and treatment response from a simple blood test that is safe, reliable and easy to perform at regular intervals during therapy. Serial analysis of ctDNA provides a unique opportunity to study the evolving genomic landscape of a cancer during therapy, identify the early emergence of treatment resistance and guide targeted therapeutic decisions. A summary of current approaches for ctDNA analysis will be presented, together with an overview of clinical applications for the use of liquid biopsies in cancer management.
