Immune sentries protect gut from bugs by sensing vitamins

3 April 2014

Australian researchers have identified a biochemical key that alerts immune cells to the presence of bacteria and fungi, which could lead to new ways of diagnosing and treating diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, peptic ulcers and even infections like tuberculosis.

Cone snails have multiple venoms, research shows

27 March 2014

Cone snails change “weapons”, depending on whether they are hunting or defending themselves, researchers from The University of Queensland have discovered.

20 March 2014

IMB researchers will be aided in generating new insights into some of the most serious diseases facing contemporary society by the merger of two of its foundational research divisions.

Advance toward developing an oral pain reliever derived from debilitating snail venom

17 March 2014

Scientists have created at least five new experimental substances — based on a tiny protein found in cone snail venom — that could someday lead to the development of safe and effective oral medications for treatment of chronic nerve pain.
