This image of mouse skin was taken with a Carl Zeiss LSM710 confocal microscope. Fluorescent antibodies were used to label structural features of the skin, highlighting the complexity of this organ's architecture. Cell nuclei are shown in blue, while Laminin in orange and Podoplanin in red outline the tissue's vasculature and fibroblast network, and ER-TR7 (green) delineates the basement membrane which separates epidermis and dermis. Image taken by Dr Ali Zaid (Mueller/Heath lab).

Our congratulations to Alida Scholtes who was the recipient of a Vice-Chancellor Award for Outstanding Contribution in 2013. This is in recognition of Alida's work efforts which have gone above and beyond the expectations for her role and contribution to fulfilling the goals, values and mission of the University. The Department is very appreciative of the extraordinary amount of work Alida has put in, particularly over the last three years with the Peter Doherty Institute. In addition to the usual demands in the management of a large Department, she has done a huge amount of work connected with the Doherty and very competently represented the Department's interests in numerous committee meetings. An award that is well-deserved.
Our congratulations to Professor Dale Godfrey who was one of only two winners of the University's prestigious Woodward Medal. The Woodward Medals are presented each year by the University in recognition of staff research which is considered to have made the most significant contribution to their field in the last three years.
