Historical Significance: Barry Collin purchased a second hand electron microscope from the anatomy department of the University of Melbourne in about 1970 for his research on corneal pathology. Barbara Hoban was a Masters degree graduate student working with Dr Collin. It was an important step for an optometry department to have its own electron microscope and to engage in biological research: at the time very few optometry departments in the world did this kind of research.
