A joint research team from the University of Newcastle and the University of New South Wales has taken major steps towards producing a bionic eye for the treatment of blindness. It has developed a silicon chip which replaces the sensory part of the eye-the retina.
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.
