Scientists have reconstructed a fully functional epidermis, covering approximately 80% of the total body surface area, for a seven-year-old patient with a genetic skin disease called Junctional Epidermolysis Bullosa (JEB).
A group of international researchers has developed a web tool, RefEx, that can easily search gene expression data available in public databases.
Research led by ANU has found that the proportion of 'staph' infections resistant to antibiotics has increased in Australia since 2000, with most cases now occurring in the community rather than in hospitals.
Global healthcare company MSD and the University of Queensland's commercialisation company, UniQuest, have partnered to develop a platform for new immuno-oncology therapies.
Melbourne researchers have produced a three-dimensional (3D) map of a molecular 'scaffold' called SgK223, known to play a critical role in the development and spread of aggressive breast, colon and pancreatic cancers.
A yeast protein that evolved from scratch can fold into a three-dimensional shape, contrary to the general understanding of young proteins, according to new research led by the University of Arizona.
We bet you never thought your mealtimes could affect the biological clock of your skin — or its ability to protect itself from the sun's rays.
Scientists at La Trobe University and the University of Western Australia have made a seed germination breakthrough.
A study by researchers at the University of Sydney and University of Queensland has found that modified peptides could be used to boost plant growth and development.
Griffith University researchers have found that lead poisoning is a major risk factor for pre-eclampsia, a disease which kills over 75,000 women internationally each year and is responsible for 9% of all foetal deaths.
Minister for Education and Training Simon Birmingham surprised attendees at the International Astronautical Congress in Adelaide by announcing the government's plans to establish Australia's very own space agency.
Researchers at Sanford Burnham Prebys have shown that alterations in alternative splicing may trigger cancer.
Deakin University and Chinese biotech company Suzhou GenePharma have partnered to develop a blood test that can detect fatal diseases like pancreatic or lung cancer.
Researchers have grown three-dimensional samples of mineralised bone from human mesenchymal stem cells without typical osteoinductive media.
Scientists may not be able to stop fair-skinned redheads from getting sunburnt but they are a step closer to reducing their likelihood of certain types of skin cancer. Researchers from Boston and Edinburgh have found that triggering skin pigmentation in the laboratory can prevent mice from developing melanoma.
