Proteomic analysis of exosomes from iPS cell-derived neurons with mislocalised TDP-43 (2019)$99,665
Description
Our overarching hypothesis is that TDP-43 mislocalisation leads to altered axonal and exosomal protein expression, and which may underpin the mechanism of TDP-43 pathological spread leading to neurodegeneration of motor circuits in ALS. To begin testing this hypothesis, we have designed experiments to address three Specific Aims:Aim 1: To characterize human iPS cell-based models of TDP-43 mislocalisationAim 2: To quantify proteins differentially expressed in axons and exosomes of iPS cell-derived neurons with and without TDP-43 mislocalisationAim 3: To quantify transmission of TDP-43 mislocalisation and altered phosphorylation in a human cerebral organoid model

Rapid antibody development for improved cancer immunotherapy diagnostics (2019)$9,841
Description
Development of tools such as monoclonal antibodies to study the immune system can be time consuming, costly, and technically challenging. Recently, a technique called phage-assisted continuous evolution (PACE) was developed to harness the rapid evolution of bacteriophages to produce novel biomolecules1,2. We have recently established the PACE system here at Menzies, and we will now apply this system to the development of monoclonal antibodies. We will use the PACE system to produce single-domain antibodies (sdAb, aka Nanobodies). sdAbs are derived from the variable coding region of heavy-chain only antibodies from the camelid family (e.g. camels, llamas, alpaca). The unique heavy chain only antibodies from camels are simpler to produce than antibodies from other species because they require only one protein-coding gene sequence (e.g. the variable region), whereas other species require at least a heavy chain variable region, a light chain variable region, and in most cases the heavy and light chain constant regions. sdAbs have been shown to a protein binding capacity similar to traditional antibodies, but have the added benefit of being very small, which facilitates their use in applications that require small proteins. Importantly, the ability of a single gene to produce a high-affinity antibody lends itself to the PACE system because only one gene needs to be evolved, thus eliminating complications of matching heavy and light chain genes to produce a functional antibody. We will initially reproduce a published sdAb that targets a key immune molecule3 to demonstrate our capacity to make sdAbs. Then we will produce a phage library that represents the germline heavy chain only variable regions encoded in the camels, llamas, and alpaca genome. We can then allow the phages to compete for binding to target antigens and allow evolution to produce a high-affinity sdAb in a few weeks. Traditional monoclonal antibodies take 2-6 months to produce.

Translation of glaucoma blindness genes to improve clinical practice (2018 - 2022)$844,966
Description
Glaucoma is the commonest cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. The only available treatment proven to slow glaucoma progression is lowering of intraocular pressure. However, despite treatment, many individuals still develop progressive loss of vision. For those at high risk of blindness, early treatment reduces the likelihood of major visual disability. Conversely, for low-risk individuals, costly lifelong treatment may be instituted unnecessarily. Individuals with suspicious optic disc appearances but normal visual fields are known as glaucoma suspects. Current ability to predict the risk of blindness in glaucoma suspects and early glaucoma is extremely poor. Recent genome-wide association studies by us and others have identified multiple genes associated with glaucoma, and we are extending our work to discover further common genetic associations for glaucoma by meta-analysis. We will then investigate whether these genetic variants are associated with conversion of glaucoma suspects to glaucoma with vision loss, and with the rate of progression in established early glaucoma. The study will enroll subjects classified as (A) "glaucoma suspects", a group in which the decision to monitor or treat is poorly defined with current evidence, and (B) early manifest glaucoma, a group in which ability to predict progression rates would impact on timing and type of treatment. We will monitor 1000 participants in each arm for the duration of the study to determine whether glaucoma genetic risk variants are associated with clinical progression parameters. The risk factors for progression to glaucoma have not been previously studied in the full range of glaucoma suspects, and genetic risk profiling has not been attempted in a prospective study of early manifest glaucoma progression. An evidence based process for risk adjustment in the early stages of disease would have a favourable impact on the budget required for monitoring and treating this group of patients.

Stem Cells Australia Special Research Initiative (extension to existing SRI) (2018)$3,000,000
Description
Stem cells have long been a key research strength within Australian biomedical science. Federal support for this area, notably from the Australian Research Council, has spanned the last 15 years. Since 2012, Stem Cells Australia (SCA) has operated as a Strategic Research Initiative of the ARC, supporting advances in fundamental stem cell science in order to underpin eventual biomedical advances. As this SRI reaches maturation, we propose a repositioning of the portfolio to prepare stem cell science for stem cell medicine in Australia. This evolution is essential if Australia is to maintain international parity for stem-cell based therapeutics, develop precision medicine based on patient-derived stem cell modelling and to be able to capitalise on new industries based on stem cell biology. Our stem cell research will also prime new areas of Australian research excellence in discovery programs aimed at understanding fundamental rules about cell identity and molecular networks.These three programs are Regenerative Medicine Disease modelling Designer cells

From Discovery to therapy in genetic eye diseases (2017 - 2021)$2,498,223
Description
Ophthalmology has always been at the forefront of genetic discovery and this has led to an improved understanding of the biological mechanism of manyinherited eye diseases. This CRE brings together leading researchers from all the genetic eye disease groups across Australia to capitalize on the newtechnologies in ocular imaging and genetic discovery. The research team has a strong track record in identifying and characterising genes that cause bothMendelian and complex blinding eye diseases and in translating these findings into clinical care. Building on our previous experience and using new imagingtechnology such as optical coherence tomography, adaptive optics and micro-perimetry we will progress research to precisely define the natural history ofblinding eye diseases. This is essential for clinical trials to proceed efficiently. Access to a national network of patients and families with specific geneticsubtypes of eye diseases will enable us to facilitate and initiate treatment trials for inherited ophthalmic conditions. In conjunction with patient andcommunity organisations we will develop world leading models for genetic risk prediction and for feedback of genetic results for both Mendelian andcomplex eye diseases. Our work will extend to analyzing health economics as well as the legal and ethical aspects of genetic research. Central to the CRE willbe the training of researchers and eye care providers to develop best clinical practice using our research findings. Our team members are experiencedparticipants in international consortia for eye disease gene discovery; Australias national disease registries and biobanks place us in a key position to alsoparticipate in international gene based treatment trials for a large number of disorders. Translation of this research into care for genetic eye disease ispredictive, preventive, personalised and participatory.

Preclinical Development of Neuropeptide Y for the Treatment of Motor Neuron Disease (2017 - 2020)$936,575
Description
Motor Neuron Disease (MND) is a rapidly progressing neurodegenerative disease. There are no cures and no effective treatments for MND, with people diagnosed having a median survival of only three years from symptom onset. Not knowing the cause of MND or how it progresses through the CNS have been immense barriers to the development of effective therapeutics. We have reached a critical time in MND research. Our research team has been dedicated to researching the mechanism of MND for the last ten years. We are now poised to transition my teams research efforts from determining the cause of this disease to using this knowledge to develop treatments. A critical pathway that our work and others have shown is key to MND is altered network excitability and subsequent excitotoxicity in the cortex. We have recent published and preliminary data that identifies that a critical potential point of intervention in this pathway is via the subclass of inhibitory cells that express neuropeptide Y (NPY). The overarching Aim for this Cure for MND Translational Research Grant is to now target this pathway to develop a treatment. By performing this world-first preclinical trial we will reveal further aspects of disease pathogenesis. Positive outcomes from these trials will identify a candidate compounds for progression to a human trial for the treatment of MND.

Targeting at risk relatives of glaucoma patients for early diagnosis and treatment (TARRGET) (2017 - 2019)$789,722
Description
We will evaluate a family screening program for glaucoma. We will refer high risk close relatives of severely affected glaucoma patients to havean appropriate eye examination and genetic testing for glaucoma. Over the past 20 years Glaucoma Australia has been emphasising theimportance of a family history and the need for relatives to get tested. Early diagnosis and treatment prevents glaucoma blindness. Geneticsplays a major role in the risk for glaucoma and several genes of high and moderate risk have been identified but these account for 5% ofglaucoma cases at present. We provide genetic testing for glaucoma patients and relatives through the Australian and New Zealand Registry ofAdvanced Glaucoma (ANZRAG). Pending the discovery of the other glaucoma genes, the major genetics tool in identifying individuals with ahigh risk of glaucoma is a known family history of glaucoma.We propose a coordinated targeted family screening program for relatives of people with severe glaucoma. In city areas of Perth, Adelaide,Sydney, and Tasmania we will refer first degree relatives to their local eye care provider and monitor their uptake and outcomes of screeningexamination. In 16 rural and remote locations in Western Australia, we will examine the relatives ourselves using the facilities of the recentlylaunched Lions Outback Vision Van. We will evaluate the use of new optic nerve screening modalities for glaucoma using Retinal Nerve FibreAnalysis with OCT imaging.Our main outcome measure will be the prevalence of undiagnosed glaucoma in those who participate. Secondary measures include participationrates of index cases and participation rates in first degree relatives as well as a comparison of uptake in rural areas where the ophthalmicexamination will be provided at no charge in regional centres. Participants will also be invited to provide a blood sample for DNA testing formyocilin and cascade genetic screening in the future.

Developing CRISPR/Cas Library Screens for identifying Novel Cancer Therapies (2017)$63,845
Description
Our understanding of many cancers has improved dramatically over the past decade predominantly due to our ability to sequence entire genomes, at scale. Yet, we still require a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms that initiate and perpetuate cancers, as well as gene-based factors that initiate the transition from indolent to aggressive cancers with a propensity to metastasize. CRISPR/Cas is proving a robust, powerful and necessary tool in the laboratory that will undoubtedly underpin the next breakthrough in the field of cancer. As such, it is essential that we develop this capability at the University of Tasmania in a timely manner.The specific AIMS of this proposal are to:Aim 1: Establish CRISPR/Cas screening at the University of Tasmania as a tool to identify genesthat drive aggressive and metastatic cancers.Aim 2: Perform a genome-wide CRISPR/Cas negative selection (loss-of-function) screen toidentify genes essential for proliferation and survival, as well as metastatic behaviour.

High penetrance deleterious mutations in blinding glaucoma (2016 - 2018)$1,345,055
Description
Primary Open Angle Glaucoma (POAG) is the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. The etiology of the disease is poorly understood, but it is clear that there is a major genetic component. Highly penetrant mutations in the Myocilin gene and a number of other glaucoma genes account for around 5%of POAG, and recent genome-wide association studies have identified common variants, individually of modest effect size associated with POAG in multiple cohorts. However, the majority of the heritability of POAG remains unaccounted for. We hypothesise that a significant proportion of the "missing heritability" is accounted for by rare variants of larger effect size in causative genes. We propose to sequence the exome (all known genes and transcribed regions) of a unique large well-characterised cohort of patients with very severe POAG, to identify genes enriched for deleterious mutations. This extreme phenotype strategy will increase the power to identify pathogenic mutations. Exome analysis will be performed on 1500 participants in the Australian and New Zealand Registry of Advanced Glaucoma. Genes containing the most potentially damaging variants compared with population controls will be sequenced in a replication cohort, versus hyper-normal controls to confirm the findings and identify the mutation spectrum in each gene. Disease associated genes will be investigated by expression profiling in a mouse model of glaucoma. Mice with mutations in genes of interest will be phenotypically analysed in a collaborative initiative to demonstrate a causal relationship with glaucoma. This project will determine the genes most commonly mutated in individuals with advanced glaucoma. This will lead to improved understanding of glaucoma pathogenesis, a better ability to predict risk, and elucidate drug targets fornovel therapies

Molecular profiling to identify therapeutic targets for blinding diseases. (2016 - 2020)$467,960
Description
Understanding the precise molecular mechanisms leading to blinding disease will enable improved screening progams and the development of novel therapies. As an ophthalmologist with sub-speciality interest in inherited eye disease, I have established a world leading repository of fibroblast and iPSC lines from well-characterised patients who have either common, complex (glaucoma or age-related macular degeneration) or less common orphan (in particular retinal dysthrophies), blinding diseases. Since the completion of my clinical fellowship and PhD, my research output, both in terms of publications and awarded competitive grant funding, has been steadily increasing. I have co-authored over 150 peer-reviewed manuscripts and have also helped secure over $7 million in competitive research funding.Bridging the gap between laboratory research and patient care is an important aspect of my work. There are four broad research domains which I am actively leading. Each project builds upon firmly established collaborations and outlines a unique area of investigation, whereby the information gained will provide an important step in the transition from discovery to improved risk profiling or therapy. PROJECT 1 extends my gene discovery work through the application of genome-wide association studies. PROJECT 2 will capitalise on our internationally unique cohort of patient-specific cell lines to define the precise molecular pathways involved by studying the principal cells damaged in glaucoma and macular degeneration. PROJECT 3 combines the power of in vitro modelling of patient-specific stem cell derived cells with high fidelity gene correction to definitively define the precise molecular pathways involved in genetically defined retinal dystrophies. The final domain of research (PROJECT 4) will prospectively investigate whether retinal nerve profiles mirror changes in cognitive/brain reserve and the development of ageing-related decline, cognitive impairment or dementia.
