Visualisation of CRISPR targets

CRISPR-Cas9 technology allows us to modify virtually any gene in any organism of interest. It has generated a lot of interest, both in the research community and the general population.One of the crucial components of CRISPR experiments is the design of the 'guide RNAs' that will control where modifications occur.We have developed a software pipeline, named Crackling, to identify safe and effective guide RNAs across entire genomes. We're now seeking to develop a visualisation to communicate the results produced by …

3D Printing Surgical Education and Training Models

Each year, millions of people suffer from traumatic tissue damage due to cancers, congenital defects or injury. Biofabrication is the rapid 3D printing of replacement tissue and organs that are customised to the specific needs of the patient. This future of manufacturing technology is set to revolutionise regenerative medicine and deliver high quality health outcomes. The Biofabrication and Tissue Morphology group is a world class multi-disciplinary research team focused on embedding biofabrication into routine clinical use. Based at our state-of-the-art …

Developing ANSYS multibody dynamics for application to problems in vehicle design

Vehicles experience a wide range of dynamically changing forces throughout driving. Race cars, especially, undergo extremely large loads during a race, and accounting for those loads in the design and analysis of all components is critical. Specialised vehicle dynamics software is often used to model such forces, while Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a common approach to analyse components.The ANSYS software package provides an additional Multibody Dynamics module that enables the combination of rigid and flexible parts to be modelled …

AI-Based Data Analysis on Multiple Imaging Modalities

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality globally. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it is estimated CVD takes 17.9 million lives every year. In Australian, the statistical data from the Australia Heart Foundation shows CVD is a major cause of death in Australia. It occupies 26% of all deaths, responsible for an average 118 deaths every day. Four of the main types of CVD are coronary heart disease, strokes and transient ischaemic attack, peripheral …

Bushfire performance of lightweight and fire resistant wall panels

This project will investigate the structural bushfire performance of lightweight and fire resistant cement based blocks and wall panels. This includes axial compression tests and fire resistance tests of individual blocks currently available in the industry. The performance will be summarized based on the raw materials and the mix proportion of the blocks.

Biophysical models in humans and nature

Biophysical models are developed to represent key processes in humans and nature, from the electrophysiology of the human heart, to calcium carbonate skeleton production of coral reefs.In this project, we will explore biophysical model development across multiple fields, to identify commonalities, strengths and weaknesses, and identify analysis techniques ubiquitous in one field that can be immediately exploited to improve science in another field.

Improving the fire resistance of light steel floor systems

The project will investigate the fire behaviour of selected light steel floor systems aimed at delaying board fall-off. It will involve fire tests of small scale floor assemblies (1.2m x 1.2m) to understand how they behave in fire and determine their fire resistance levels and/or associated thermal simulations using available FEA/CFD software.We're looking for civil and mechanical engineering students with an interest in:structural and fire testingnumerical modelling.
