Unlike in the influenza pandemic in 1918, today we are better equipped to identify the elusive bug responsible for COVID-19.
Exactly how massive galaxies attain their size is poorly understood, but now a combination of observation and modelling has provided a vital clue.
Researchers have developed a new method to enable more timely diagnosis and treatment of urological cancers, ie, prostate, bladder and kidney cancers.
A new blood test can accurately detect more than 50 types of cancer and identify in which tissue the cancer originated, often before there are any clinical signs or symptoms.
Chemists, physicists and engineers have transformed optical fibres into photocatalytic microreactors that convert water into hydrogen fuel using solar energy.
Researchers have created a new technique that speeds up the development of seeds, producing better quality and more abundant pulse crops as a result.
A container-scale facility seeks to convert CO2 contained in ambient air into highly pure carbon black powder that can be used as a resource in industry.
Research to tackle the growing need to find, capture and remove junk from space is advancing at the Australian Institute for Machine Learning in Adelaide.
NanoViricides has completed the synthesis of a number of nanoviricide drug candidates for testing just a few weeks after identification of virus-binding ligands.
A large proportion of the elements that are essential to the formation of oceans and life — such as water, carbon and nitrogen — only came to Earth very late in its history.
Researchers develop a 3D hierarchically porous nanostructured catalyst with a carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide conversion rate up to 3.96 times higher than that of conventional nanoporous gold catalysts.
A star that pulsates on just one side has been discovered in the Milky Way — and while such stars have been predicted in theory, this is the first of its kind to be recorded.
A new infection test, made up of sheets of paper patterned by lasers, will enable diagnosis at the point of care — helping doctors give patients the right treatment, and quickly.
The nanotechnology developed by University of Queensland scientists can detect and monitor extracellular vesicles (EVs) in the bloodstream.
Computed tomography (CT) of the chest demonstrates better sensitivity than reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT‑PCR) when it comes to diagnosing COVID‑19.
