800 words for 80,000 hits - 4.00pm

Date: Tuesday, 20 September
Time: 4.00pm-5.00pm
Location: Mount Lawley Campus: Building 10, Room 10.131
Presenters: Michael Hopkin, Section editor, The Conversation


An academic once (jokingly) said about a Journal article, that at least the two reviewers had read it. Now, it's amazing to think that a 800-word article on your research findings could be seen and downloaded by up to 80,000 others and even more. Hence, the title of the seminar. This is made possible by The Conversation which is an independent, not-for-profit media outlet that uses content sourced from the academic and research community. It combines academic rigor with journalistic flair and makes your research accessible to a wider audience (and not just two reviewers).

Researchers will present some of the schools groundbreaking research within second year lectures during Research Week. Melanoma is one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers in developed countries. In contrast to the stable or declining trends for most malignancies, melanoma incidence has increased worldwide in the past decade, with over 133,000 new cases reported each year. Circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA), which are short fragments of DNA released into the plasma as a result of tumour cell apoptosis, is emerging as a promising blood-based biomarker for monitoring disease status of cancer patients, including melanoma. The ECU melanoma research group has pioneered the use of ctDNA to predict the efficacy of treatments and/or to monitor response, relapse and tumour evolution of melanoma patients.

Koorda Katitjin Lessons in love: Positive Family Functioning - What can be learnt from the traditional Nyoongar family system? - 12 noon

Date: Wednesday, 21 September
Time: 12.00pm-1.00pm
Location: Mount Lawley Campus: Kurongkurl Katitjin Gallery, Building 15

A presentation of recent research about family dynamics relating to marriage, fertility and infancy in moort (the traditional Nyoongar family system) and the British system, which was imposed on Nyoongar people from 1826. Koodjal Jinnung explores themes looking simultaneously through traditional Nyoongar and modern Western lenses, searching for resonances that can support both communities going forward together. The research indicates that prior to 1826 the systems were different but are converging with romantic love becoming the precursor to marriage and the British system gaining a Nyoongar-like mutuality of respect between genders and a higher regard for attachment.

Location: Joondalup Campus: Building 19, Room 19.101
Presenters: Dr Samantha Gardener


Researchers will present some of the schools groundbreaking research within second year lectures during Research Week. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. It is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that currently affects over 35 million people worldwide. Due to an increase in life expectancy this figure is predicted to increase to more than 115 million by 2050. Symptoms include memory decline and behavioural disturbances like depression and anxiety. Currently there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease. If we can delay the onset by one year, there will be nearly 9.2 million fewer cases of the disease in 2050. Early detection coupled with intervention strategies could decrease disease incidence and effects.

Location: Mount Lawley Campus: Building 1, WAAPA Foyer
Presenters: WAAPA Research Staff and Students


This showcase brings together the high quality research being generated at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts  (WAPPA) by postgraduate students, staff together with industry partners. A range of work will be presented from books, journals, posters, performance and technical work.  Whilst WAAPA is internationally recognised for its role in teaching and creative practice, perhaps less well-known is that WAAPA has a large cohort of students engaged in postgraduate studies. These outstanding students, guided by world-class supervisors, are exploring issues which are at the heart of performing arts practice today. Topics cover music, dance, theatre, human movement, arts management, creative writing plus other areas of creative endeavour. Come and be stimulated by poster exhibitions, showings of work in progress, informative talks and heated discussion. Meet a vibrant community of musicians and performing artists who are working at the cutting-edge of their fields.
