University of Western Sydney (UWS) student Chendur Palaniappan analysed his own tears to find clues to producing better and longer lasting lubricants to help millions of people with painful dry eyes. And the secret is in how proteins and oils interact, he found.
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. Interested in being involved? Please get in touch.
