Research

Naomi is completing her PhD at University of Technology Sydney

Proteomic characterisation of adipose stem cells

·Isolation of adipose stem cells from 10 human abdominal lipoaspirates. 
·Expansion of cells using traditional media and xeno-free alternatives. Investigation of cryopreservation on adipose stem cells. 
·Proteomic characterisation was achieved through analysing whole cell lysates, membrane bound fractions and extracellular vesicles on a Q Exactive Plus Orbitrap mass spectrometer. 
·Examination of 27 secreted cytokines with a Bioplex multiplex immunoassay.


Kynurenine pathway in adipose stem cells

·Collaboration with St Vincent's Centre for Applied Medical Research and Macquarie University.
·Adipose stem cells were treated with interferon gamma and the neurotoxin Quinolinic Acid for proteomic and microscopy analysis. 
·Kynurenine pathway metabolites were determined by high-performance liquid chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.


Digital media

·Creation of digital media content for multiple sclerosis patients, utilisation of this digital media for education, and investigation of self-regulated learning.
