Professor Colin Green: Healing wounds

Wanaka | 6pm Thursday 25 September | Presbyterian Church Hall

Professor Colin Green (University of Auckland) tells the story of the development of Nexagon™ – a clear gel that is dripped onto wounds such as venous or diabetic leg ulcers – how it led to a new understanding of wound healing, and how this knowledge is developing into a novel approach to the development of cancer therapies that is generating international interest.

Professor Catherine Day: Life and death of a cell

Nelson | 7:30pm Tuesday 30 September | The Suter Theatre

Professor Catherine Day (University of Otago) will discuss the chemistry of cells and the chemical signals that facilitate communication between and within cells. This knowledge has had an enormous impact on many fields including medicine and biotechnology.
