A new system for directing radiation to target cells has been developed in Melbourne. The new targeting system has the potential to specifically destroy cancer cells with minimal damage to healthy tissues. The new targeting concept, for which an international patent is pending, uses a special class of radioactive atoms for which the radiation damage […]
Scientists have recently discovered that the gene EDD is implicated in the development of breast and ovarian cancer. And like the horse, this gene is into talking. “Cancer arises from defects in cell growth and division. We are now beginning to realise that defective cellular communication can also lead to cancer,” says Professor Rob Sutherland, […]
The cells in our bodies talk with each other. Tapping into their communication could give an early warning of heart disease according to new research by Katharina Gaus, a researcher from the University of New South Wales.
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.
“Thanks for the opportunity to take part in this year’s Fresh Science, it was a great experience. I really enjoyed learning more about the media pitch process- I look forward to hopefully being a little more comfortable talking to media!”
“I would just like to express my gratitude for allowing me to partake in this fantastic program. I thought the content and delivery was immensely useful for me and have learnt a lot about communication that I have already started implementing for some upcoming talks.”
