Implementing virtual reality techniques to investigate users’ perceptions of hospital rooms

We have an ongoing project that investigates how patients and their carers respond to different lighting conditions and outdoor views in hospital rooms (recovery ward). We want to better understand how daylighting and views influence occupants’ attitudes during their recovery process.This would contribute to designing hospital environments that are more responsive to users’ requirements for well-being.

Determining the response to PARP inhibitor treatment of ovarian cancer in mouse xenograft model

Our cellular DNA is constantly under threat from both exogenous and endogenous factors. DNA repair pathways function to maintain genomic stability, preventing deleterious mutations that may ultimately lead to cancer initiation. When a tumour forms, it becomes genetically unstable, allowing environmental adaptation. This genetic instability can also result in gene mutations and protein expression alterations that can be targeted to induce cancer-specific cell death (phenomenon also known as synthetic lethality). For example, it has been shown that cells deficient in …

Unified def-site and use-site security policies for component-based software systems

Securing the information manipulated by computer systems, such as privacy and integrity in social software, is a challenge. Traditional methods to impose limits on the information disclosure, such as access control lists, firewalls, and cryptography, provide no guarantees about information propagation. For instance, cryptography provides no guarantees about the confidentiality of the data are given once it is decrypted.Information flow control (IFC) is the problem of ensuring secure information flow according to specified policies within computer systems. Modern applications are …

Investigating the activities of clinically significant arboviruses from 2002 to 2017 in Australia: possible implications for blood transfusion safety

Arboviruses are a significant concern for public health in Australia and worldwide. More than 75 arboviruses have been identified in Australia.1 Three of the most common and clinically important arboviruses in Australia today include Ross River virus (RRV), Barmah Forest virus (BFV) and dengue virus (DENV). These mosquito-borne diseases have exhibited an upward trend in case numbers in Australia since 2002.Concern has arisen that these numbers will only continue to increase as a result of climate change. Vector-borne disease risk …

Understanding the impacts of biodiversity-focused interventions to agri-food systems on people and nature

Despite efforts to monitor and manage declining species and ecosystems around the world, biodiversity is still not routinely included in mainstream decision-making and continues to decline at the highest rate in human history. Added to this is the problem that both natural and agri-food systems are continually changing due to human and natural disturbances, with climate change likely to increase the impacts of extreme events like drought, fire and economic shocks. Because of large uncertainties and trade-offs between many human …
