Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: Novel strategy to clear pathologic TDP-43 aggregates
This novel and disease-modifying approach is based on a validated Mechanism of Action involving an endogenous clearance pathway.
Dementia Research Centre: Alzheimer’s Disease Portfolio
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most prevalent neurological and neurodegenerative condition in humans, characterised by progressive loss of cognition resulting eventually in the inability to cope with daily living.
High brightness pulsed Raman laser
Using diamond Raman technology, a pump beam can be efficiently converted to a longer wavelength output beam using 1, 2 or more Stokes shifts of the Raman medium. For example, a 1.06 μm laser pump beam can be efficiently converted to a 1.5 μm output beam.
High average power continuous-wave laser
High thermal conductivity Raman materials such as diamond can be used to mitigate thermal lensing enabling operation over a very wide power range without compromising output beam quality.
Diamond-based High Energy Laser (HEL) tech
Macquarie’s diamond-based High Energy Laser (HEL) tech runs at an eye safer 1.24 µm, with unprecedented ultra-high power potential of 100’s of kW to MWs. This technology is transformative as beam-conversion in diamond can substantially raise the power barrier.
Continuous-wave yellow Raman laser
Design of continuous-wave Raman lasers, particularly yellow.
Novel glass for low loss high index change optical waveguide photonic circuits
A glass that would perform as an optical platform for laser written waveguides to produce optical integrated circuits for integrated photonic applications. The glass is easily tuneable for its optimal performance based on its application ranging from display devices to astrophotonics.
Iterative compressive sensing direction of arrival estimation (icsDOA)
Iterative compressive sensing direction of arrival estimation (icsDOA) is the most advanced technology to determine the location of origin for radio, radar or sonar.
High-resolution detection of direction of arrival of a transmitting source
Determination of the angle of arrival of a radio signal by the signal complex voltages obtained at the outputs of antenna elements configured in a circular array and unique signal processing of these signals.
Power amplifier with inbuilt thermal sensor
This electronic real-time monitoring system enables microsecond accurate measurements of the temperature of a transistor.
Multi-level metallisation thru-wafer transformer and bias feed network for microwave circuits
The elimination of airbridge structures improves bandwidth and reduces the overall size.
A novel enhancement of the FET mixer concept for GaN FETs with field-plate technology.
Improved heat tolerance in plants for enhanced crop yields under heat stress
A novel variant of RCA conferring greater photosynthetic performance at elevated temperatures, and enabling crops to be more productive in hotter regimes.
Effective, safe and novel insect repellent for use in crop protection
A novel repellent effective against several fruit fly species.
Heterologous expression of functional fungal laccase in animals for bioremediation of environmental pollutants
Utilising low-cost organic waste streams as feedstocks and simplified infrastructure for biomanufacturing with minimal use of water.
Chemistry and Biomolecular Science
Efficient Biodegradation of Plastics using Synthetic Organisms
Genetically engineered microbial (yeast or bacterial) synthetic strains which will be utilised for enhanced PE degradation and subsequent chemical commodity production (including but without limitation to biofuels, nutrient sources and fertilizers).
