Scientists have discovered the ability of a protein which helps the brain heal itself. This has established a promising direction for research, ultimately leading to possible clinical treatments for brain-related injuries including strokes, car accidents and spinal damage.
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 secure operational funding.
Fresh Science 2020. We are considering how and when to run Fresh Science this year. Nominations usually open around July, close in September and training and public events are held in October/November.
