Emergence of curvature-dependent growth in mathematical models of tissue invasion

The growth of biological tissues in 3D-printed scaffold pores occurs under strong geometric controls depending on the shape and size of the pores. How this control emerges from the interaction between spatial constraints and biological processes such as cell migration and cell proliferation remains largely unknown. Existing phenomenological models of tissue growth hypothesise growth laws which directly involve curvature without considering cellular mechanisms.Recently, a reaction–diffusion mathematical model of tissue growth in porous scaffolds was proposed to investigate cell-level behaviour using …

Engineering response to climate emergency with zero carbon footprint for building construction by 2030 using circular economy principles

We as engineers can make a contribution to address the current climate emergency.The Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council report (2016) found that if Australia's built environment sector reaches zero carbon emissions for the operation of residential and commercial buildings by 2050, it could contribute 28% to the country's 2030 emissions reduction target and save up to AU$20 billion.In this project we will consider the application of the circular economy, which is based on the principles of designing out waste and …

Are police detention powers under Mental Health Acts justified in the emergency medicine context?

Police in Australian states and territories have powers under Mental Health Acts to detain and transport people that, in their opinion, might have a mental illness and potentially pose a risk to themselves or others.These powers see thousands of people detained, transported to hospital and often sedated and/or restrained without consent each year.The majority are discharged home and are placed on an involuntary treatment order. A subset of people is subjected to detention and transport on multiple occasions.Research questions include:What …

Declarations of emergency in Australia during the COVID-19 pandemic

During the COVID-19 pandemic Australian governments made declarations of emergency to respond to the pandemic. These declarations enabled the use of emergency powers under public health legislation. Public health directions have been made under these powers on issues such as closing state borders, social distancing requirements, domestic quarantine requirements, and requirements to wear face masks.This project is supported by the Australian Centre for Health Law Research.
