Why does evidence of alien life continue to elude Earth's scientists? Is it because such life never existed at all, or because it has already gone extinct?
Is the Indian myna waging biological warfare to gain a competitive advantage over Australia's native birds as they spread through eastern Australia?
Researchers have used transcranial magnetic stimulation to temporarily shut down a region of the brain — specifically, the region that solves abstract problems addressed by ideology.
A research team led by Sydney's Centenary Institute has discovered a significant link between breast cancer and nutrition — one which could lead to a new treatment aimed at 'starving' breast cancer cells.
US researchers may have solved an intriguing mystery — why do elephants rarely get cancer?
Nineteen Tasmanian devils, who were recently immunised against the deadly devil facial tumour disease (DFTD), have been released into Narawntapu National Park as part of a program to test the vaccine in the wild for the very first time.

Scientists from ANU have comes across an unexpected species of funnel-web spider during their studies at Booderee National Park, near Jervis Bay.
Marcel and Claudia Nold are using single-cell technologies to control inflammation — an important response to infection or injury which, nevertheless, can cause conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease if not carefully controlled.
CSIRO is leading an international collaboration of researchers, beekeepers, farmers, industry and technology companies that aims to better understand what is harming the health and pollination ability of honey bees.
Professor Allan Pacey has released an inside look at the process of conception in the human body, framing it as an amazing race between 250 million competitors.
It sounds too good to be true, but scientists have developed a molecule that effectively acts as an exercise mimic. By tricking cells into thinking they have run out of energy, the molecule increases glucose uptake and metabolism, thus improving glucose tolerance and weight loss.
University of Sydney scientists have argued for more research into major infectious diseases shared between wildlife and livestock, in order to better evaluate risks and improve responses to disease epidemics in animals and humans.
A new study has found that the state of a trader's body chemistry can impact the stock market just as much as the state of the economy.
Researchers have developed a new method for reliably calculating time of death at least 10 days post-mortem — a substantial increase from the current timeframe of 36 hours.
