Epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT) in Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM): implications for better understanding and new therapeutic targets (2019 - 2021)$30,000
Description
LAM is a rare disorder that affects women, especially during their reproductive age, by progressively destroying the lungs leading to complete incapacitation. There have been very few effective therapies available yet, with the highly invasive lung transplantation being the only option available as a possible cure. Although drug treatment are available, they are moderately effective or have variable outcomes and their possible long-term side effects in patients are still unknown. This in part is because many aspects of the underlying pathogenesis remains a mystery and needs urgent deciphering. Interestingly, cells in LAM patients share identical morphological and cellular signatures to other fibrotic disorders such as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), small airway disease (SAD) in smokers and lung cancer. Our experience in these diseases would suggest that epithelial cells could be the possible source of LAM cells. Here, we wish to investigate new paradigm that will take into account some unique features of LAM, which includes the source of cellular heterogeneity, epithelial transformation capabilities and their potential metastasizing factors. We further also hope to develop in-vitro cell culture models with LAM cells that will serve as a useful tool for further investigations into disease pathogenesis and the development of possible new therapeutic targets.

Zinc activation of enzymes responsible for insulin signalling and glucose homeostasis in type 2 diabetes (2019)$21,944
Description
The inability to respond sufficiently to insulin gradually erodes our health. Type 2 diabetes (T2D) results from such insulin resistance in peripheral tissues such as skeletal muscle. In fact, skeletal muscle is the major peripheral tissue that accounts for 70-80% of glucose uptake. While there are several theories on how insulin resistance may manifest, the molecular mechanisms are still largely unclear. Given the major impact this disorder has on the health of our communities, there is an urgent need for continued basic science to understand these mechanisms to appropriately design better therapeutics to treat this disorder. Recently, zinc has been highlighted as a critical metal ion implicated in maintaining glucose homeostasis and therefore is a vital target to study its effects on insulin resistance. We have recently published a role for this metal ion in regulating glucose metabolism in skeletal muscle cells through the concomitant action of several cell signalling molecules. However, it is unclear how this is achieved. Accordingly, this study aims to address the molecular mechanisms whereby zinc can contribute to the regulation of glucose metabolism in insulin resistant skeletal muscle.

Evaluation of new therapeutic targets in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF): insights from Australian IPF registry tissue analysis (2019 - 2020)$72,728
Description
IPF is a highly destructive lethal disease of the lungs, but with very little information available on the underlying mechanisms. We are going to explore the process of epithelial cell plasticity (or EMT) and a similar process in blood vessel endothelium (Endo-MT). This work will lead to improved diagnosis and treatment of this nasty lung condition. The project brings together well-characterized patients from the Australian IPF registry, blood samples we have collected from them and innovative techniques to reset thinking about the underlying pathological processes active in this illness.

Prevalence of asthma-chronic obstructive pulmonary disease overlap syndrome (ACOS) in north-west Tasmanian population: understanding and translation to early therapy (2019 - 2020)$105,868
Description
Asthma and COPD are typically characterised as separate diseases with different clinical features, pathophysiological mechanisms and strategies for treatment. Some respiratory patients appear to have features of both diseases, i.e. a history of asthma and usually smoking, with marked fixed airflow obstruction, which is termed asthma-chronic obstructive pulmonary disease overlap syndrome (ACOS). Exacerbation rates are also quite high in ACOS patients compared to asthma or COPD alone. There is very little known about the disease and it is difficult to manage clinically because the underlying disease mechanisms and prevalence is poorly understood. There is high prevalence of undiagnosed asthma, COPD and even more for ACOS in the North-West (NW) Tasmanian population, where smoking rates are quite high. People from the low socio-economic population in particular experience considerably greater mortality and morbidity from such respiratory diseases compared to rest of the community. Respiratory lung function lab has now been established in the NW for identification of lung diseases. We now wish to apply for funding with an objective to identify the burden of ACOS in the NW population to inform clinical practice for better management of this ill-understood condition.

Airway macrophage phenotypic switch drives epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in smokers and COPD: implications for early therapy. (2019 - 2020)$100,000
Description
The M1/M2 phenotype balance has also been especially discussed in the cancer literature as an orchestrator of EMT in driving epithelial malignancies. Such new and translatable insights in COPD are an international priority given the current absence of any significant disease trajectory-modifying drug interventions in clinical practice. Here we continue to focus on EMT in COPD, but especially investigating the role of macrophage-associated cytokines in driving EMT in different patient groups leading to new therapeutic targets.

Zinc contributes to glucose control in the absence of insulin in skeletal muscle (2018)$21,460
Description
The inability of the body to respond adequately to insulin following a meal has serious consequences on health. Insulin aids in the uptake of glucose into cells, providing the liver with a store of glucose to maintain blood glucose when needed, and as a vital fuel for energy in skeletal muscle. In an insulin-resistant state, cells cannot utilise glucose, which subsequently causes serious medical conditions including obesity, hypertension, cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. Previously, emerging research has shown that zinc and the proteins that transport zinc in cells play a crucial role in activating molecules involved in glucose uptake in skeletal muscle. Recently we have shown that zinc can promote glucose utilisation in the absence of insulin in skeletal muscle. This presents with an opportunity to manipulate zinc metabolism therapeutically to provide an alternative pathway for providing glucose to cells during an insulin-resistant state.

The effect of current and investigational COPD pharmacological agents on the airway Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition (EMT) process in smokers and COPD (2017 - 2018)$72,727
Description
Small airway fibrosis is the main contributor to physiological airway obstruction in COPD. The other main airway pathology in COPD is lung cancer; up to 70% of smoking related lung cancer occurs in mild-moderate COPD. EMT may underlie both pathological features; if true this opens up major new therapeutic possibilities. We aim to investigate the effect of pharmacological agents on the EMT in airways of smokers and COPD.

Exploring zinc to improve insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism in human insulin-resistant skeletal muscle (2016)$25,959
Description
Describe your project: Insulin resistance (IR) is a disorder that is characterised by the failure of cells in the body to respond to insulin and therefore use glucose efficiently as an energy source. Prolonged IR can lead to Type 2 diabetes (T2D), a devastating disease that is intensifying worldwide. T2D is associated with related diseases including heart disease, obesity, mental illness, and cancer. Although IR is well-researched, its molecular mechanisms are still unclear. Recently, studies involving zinc and the proteins that transport zinc in cells (zinc transporters) have been highlighted for their role in regulating genes and proteins involved in disease. Specifically, one zinc transporter designated as Zip7 is involved in regulating zinc in cells and thus preserving cell function. Accordingly, this project aims to understand the molecular mechanisms of Zip7 and how it can be used to reverse IR and could therefore be amendable to treatment options for T2D.

Novel molecules of heparin for the management of asthma (2014)$4,998
Description
Aim: In an international first, this project aims to achieve the evaluation and identification of heparin molecules that inhibit the effect of several important inflammatory mediators involved in the pathogenesis of asthma, without possessing significant anticoagulant effect, with a view towards examining the efficacy of identified molecules in patients with asthma. Methodology: Heparin molecules will be separated and isolated using an ion-chromatography technique. Participants will attend the clinic where 50mL of blood will be taken by a qualified nurse. Mononuclear cells will be isolated from the collected blood. Then the cells will be activated to produce inflammatory mediators in the presence or absence of heparin fractions. Outcome: This research will evaluate and identify the novel molecules responsible for the anti-asthmatic activity of the parent heparin. This study would provide better insight into the mechanism(s) of heparin for its anti-asthmatic activity. It could open new avenues for the development of a heparin formulation with high anti-asthmatic properties but devoid of any anticoagulant activity. This could potentially resolve the safety and non-compliance issues objected upon in previous clinical trials.
