Apologies for the long-due post.. but we are still celebrating!!
We have been awarded two Discovery projects from ARC this round.
Jon, in collaboration with Xavier Conlan (Deakin University) and Jason Kennington (UWA), will continue to shed new light on the mechanisms underlying chemical signalling between gametes using mussels as a model species.
Clelia will commence a new project in collaboration with Simone Immler to further explore the role of ovarian fluid using zebrafish as a model species.
