Implementing metropolitan planning strategies: taking into account local level housing demand

Implementing metropolitan planning strategies: taking into account local level housing demand

Australia?s mainland state capital cities have recently published metropolitan plans to guide their future direction and growth. Housing requirements remain couched in supply-side terms: as target numbers and expectations that the market will provide. ...

The Drivers and Outcomes of Re-investment in Low Density Suburban Housing Markets

The Drivers and Outcomes of Re-investment in Low Density Suburban Housing Markets
Neurobiological causes of overeating in a rodent model - hedonic versus homeostatic control

Neurobiological causes of overeating in a rodent model - hedonic versus homeostatic control

Unlimited access to palatable high fat foods, in conjunction with a sedentary life style, has led to increased obesity. Exactly what mechanisms drive over consumption of energy rich foods and override mechanisms that normally regulate body weight? This...
Targeting NPY mechanisms in rodent models of generalised epilepsy

Targeting NPY mechanisms in rodent models of generalised epilepsy

This project will provide important information regarding the pharmacological mechanisms by which NPY acts to suppress seizures in animal models of epilepsy. It will provide strategies regarding potential new treatments of absence epilepsy.
Our Island Home: the shifting map of Australian literature

Our Island Home: the shifting map of Australian literature

This project will show how Australia's unique status as an island continent has shaped Australian literature. Key questions posed are: How was the colonial cartography of the Australian mainland and islands represented in literature? Why did Australia ...
Designing integrated photocatalytic systems for simultaneous clean energy generation and water remediation

Designing integrated photocatalytic systems for simultaneous clean energy generation and water remediation

This project addresses the core issues of energy and water, two highly critical resources in Australia as well as worldwide.
Evaluating communities of practice and social-professional networks: the development, design, testing, refinement, simulation and application of an evaluation framework

Evaluating communities of practice and social-professional networks: the development, design, testing, refinement, simulation and application of an evaluation framework

The purpose of this project is to produce a rigorous evaluation methodology and deliver supporting tools for the benefit of researchers, policymakers, practitioners and consumers within the health system and other sectors.
Towards Mike Artin's conjecture

Towards Mike Artin's conjecture

Non-commutative algebra is a rich, classical subject, ubiquitous in mathematics, since non-commutative algebras arise whenever you have linear operators such as differentiation or rotation.
EBCRC Project 4.21: Biofilm applications

EBCRC Project 4.21: Biofilm applications

Biofilms cause major problems in industrial and clinical settings, while standard antimicrobials and antibiotics are mostly inefficient against biofilms.
Hybrid Sensor-based Physiological Control of an Implantable Rotary Blood Pump

Hybrid Sensor-based Physiological Control of an Implantable Rotary Blood Pump

The principal goal in controlling rotary blood pumps used as ventricular assist devices in heart failure patients is to mimic the natural heart behaviour so that the body's metabolic requirements are met while avoiding harmful states associated with ov...
'Ordinary Writings': lower-class writing practices in the transition to mass literacy in Europe, 1800-1918

'Ordinary Writings': lower-class writing practices in the transition to mass literacy in Europe, 1800-1918

Historians have too easily assumed that the lives of poor and illiterate can never be directly known because they have left few written traces. This path-breaking project will demonstrate the contrary, in analysing a wide range of 'Ordinary Writings' -...
Smart bio-mimetic self-assembled gels for biomedical applications

Smart bio-mimetic self-assembled gels for biomedical applications

Self-assembled gels are a new class of materials that have been shown to have applications in tissue engineering and drug delivery. In this project we will synthesise a new family of low molecular-mass organic gellators that form biologically active se...
A controlled study of bilateral electroconvulsive therapy

A controlled study of bilateral electroconvulsive therapy

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a highly effective treatment for depression, used in Australia and throughout the world to treat severe depression that has not responded to other treatments. Despite clear evidence of its effectiveness as a treatmen...
Evaluating eviQ: a web based point of care cancer information system

Evaluating eviQ: a web based point of care cancer information system

Using clinical and economic evidence to inform decision making in cancer care
Locating Interference to GPS: Protecting the World's Aircraft Landing Systems

Locating Interference to GPS: Protecting the World's Aircraft Landing Systems

GRAS is an enormous initiative that will generate billions of dollars in exports for Australia.
Trends in Time: Work, Family and Social Policy in Australia 1992-2006

Trends in Time: Work, Family and Social Policy in Australia 1992-2006

This project will contribute to the national priority goal of ?strengthening Australia?s social and economic fabric to help families and individuals live healthy, productive, and fulfilling lives?, within the National Research Priority of ?promoting go...
Measurement of paddock scale pasture biomass using synthetic aperture radar remote sensing (ARC-Linkage)

Measurement of paddock scale pasture biomass using synthetic aperture radar remote sensing (ARC-Linkage)

To maintain the long-term viability of livestock production, producers and land managers need access to regular, timely and accurate estimates of pasture biomass. Radar remote sensing has the capacity to consistently provide this information at the pad...
