Raising the Bar Lecture Series


This inaugural lecture in the Raising the Bar series kicks off with two of USC's brightest research scientists.

Dr Steve Ogbourne - USC Snr Research Fellow - Genecology Research Centre

His topic is: Nature’s natural products as therapies to treat cancer.

Dr Ogbourne’s research focuses on the anti-cancer drug (EBC-46). EBC-46 is extracted and purified from Fontainea picrosperma, a native tropical rainforest tree found in Far North Queensland.

Dr Fraser Russell - Senior Lecturer in Biochemical Pharmacology - School of Sport and Health Sciences

His topic is: Native stingless bees: unlocking their wound-healing potential

A number of strategies are used to treat patients who have a chronic wound, including (but not limited to) management of underlying disease, nutritional supplementation, debridement, application of wound-dressings and provision of antibacterial drug therapy. This presentation will describe research at the University of the Sunshine Coast that is examining potential wound-healing properties of Australian stingless bee cerumen.
