‘Smart socks’ are helping physiotherapists better assess and treat patients during video consultations, by providing information on weight distribution and range of movement during exercises like steps, squats or jumps.

An earlier test to save cattle from the toxic effects of a common fungi—and farmers millions of dollars—has been developed by Victorian researchers. “This tool will be useful for plant breeders to see if grasses are toxic, before they sow the seeds in field trials. It will fast-track choosing better pasture in plant breeding programs […]
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.
We run Fresh Science in every state where we can secure funding.
If you would like to partner with us on Fresh Science, please get in touch.
