New research by an Australian student reveals the code our bodies use to control our immune systems. Her work could have tremendous medical benefits. Unlocking this code represents a dramatic step forward in the fight to prevent autoimmune disease, allergies and to improve vaccines.
Fresh Science is a national competition helping early-career researchers find, and then share, their stories of discovery.
The program takes up-and-coming researchers with no media experience and turns them into spokespeople for science, giving them a taste of life in the limelight, with a day of media training and a public event in their home state.
Nominations for Fresh Science 2018 are now closed.
