University of Queensland researchers are using a fluid that never settles to create quantum tornadoes on a chip.
UQ researchers are commercialising a class of reinforcing nanofibres that have the potential to create an entirely new industry in rural Queensland.
A wearable smart patch could deliver precision data to help people personalise their diets and reduce their risk of developing lifestyle-related chronic diseases like Type 2 diabetes.
Researchers from The University of Queensland have paved the way for wide use of high-performance ecofriendly pesticides by encasing them in nanoparticles, making them sturdier and stickier.
A new sensor from QLD-based company, WearOptimo, could provide medical professionals with a tool to forecast which COVID-19 patients are on the path to severe respiratory distress allowing earlier, more appropriate treatment.
Through an advanced suite of tools and substantial expertise, ANFF-Q specialises in microfluidics, organic electronics and optoelectronics, biomaterials, novel semiconductor materials and characterisation.
Treating brain cancer is very complex and challenging. Treatment must target cancer tissue without damaging surrounding non-cancer tissue. Another challenge is to determine if the new drug is delivered to the tumour.
Understanding a novel virus is the first step in developing effective diagnosis, prophylactic vaccines and therapeutics.
Traditionally used by Indigenous Australians for building materials, household goods and weapons, spinifex grass, a sacred symbol of resilience which embodies significant Indigenous traditional knowledge, has recently revealed exciting possibilities at the nano-scale.
A novel blood test that uses gold nanoparticles to detect cancer has also been shown to identify signals released by cancer cells which could result in earlier diagnosis and better treatment.
