The expected outcome is the establishment of a regularity and classification theory for nonlocal equations and for free boundary problems in linear and nonlinear settings. The benefit of the project lies in a concrete advancement of the mathematical research with advantages for a deeper understanding of complex phenomena in physics and biology. Some of the problems also provide results useful for industrial applications. $339,328
ARC Discovery Discovery Early Career Researcher Award This project aims to test whether organisms which regularly encounter low pH have greater tolerance to ocean acidification and why, and whether certain coralline algae can exert controls on their calcification that allows for greater tolerance to low pH. Coralline algae create and bind together reefs. Without them, both temperate and coral reefs as we know them would not exist. Understanding the extent to which tolerance to ocean acidification could be imparted to coralline algae through their environment or by physiological controls on calcification will enable us to better understand the fate of future reefs. $0
ARC Discovery Discovery Early Career Researcher Award This project aims to use high-resolution methods to investigate the completeness of the archaeological record of human occupation in northwestern Australia (Pilbara region). It will show how this informs our understanding of human adaptation to a changing coastal environment over the past 50,000 years. This will have significant benefits, such as providing an improved understanding and better management of Australia's unique cultural heritage. $389,254
ARC Discovery Discovery Early Career Researcher Award This project aims to offer a new approach to conceptualising the nature of time focussing on the gap between our everyday understanding of time, and the picture of time inherited from current physics. It is expected that the project will result in the generation of new knowledge that supports science communication, and strengthening research ties between the arts and science. $336,905
ARC Discovery Discovery Early Career Researcher Award This project aims to investigate the least understood aspect of plasma triglyceride metabolism; mechanisms of transport across capillary endothelial cells. This transport regulates plasma triglyceride levels, which are an important factor in determining risk for coronary diseases. An improved understanding of these mechanisms will lead in the long term to better understandings of both heart failure and atherosclerotic heart diseases. $365,058
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to discover how the functions of different proteins change as they age, and to define factors that dictate protein stability inside plants. This project will change protein turnover rates in plants by altering a regulator of this process to assess the role of this regulator in different plant developmental transitions. Expected outcomes include showing how protein abundance can be altered in plants for our future agricultural and biotechnology needs. This will provide significant benefits, such as discovering processes inside plant cells that maintain the quality of different kinds of proteins and propose how different kinds of proteins can be stabilised for plant biotechnology applications. $368,400
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to develop innovative methods for the use of conductive concrete as a building material with an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) shielding property. Three dimensional printing of conductive concrete will present an innovative and promising technique in real-life construction practices when structures are needed for facilities and infrastructure employed for critical services such as military or financial infrastructures. The project will create new revenue streams for cement and concrete industry as well as empower the workforce with cutting-edge skills. The newly developed materials and technology will lead to protection of national facilities and infrastructure. $382,834
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to produce stable solutions of high quality, two-dimensional materials (2DMs, exemplified by graphene) in ionic liquids by spontaneous exfoliation. The project will develop processes for producing significant quantities of high quality 2DMs for use in a diverse range of technologies, and train graduate students in experimental and computational chemistry techniques. $238,048
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to engineer a new micro-imaging tool for comprehensive characterisation of the tumour microenvironment in situ, including micro-morphology, microvasculature, extracellular matrix, local stiffness and the functional variables of pH, oxygen content and temperature. The project will provide accessible, label-free longitudinal monitoring of tumours in animal models of disease; thereby, reducing animal use, improving experimental power, and providing better micro'scale characterisation to underpin discovery and application in cancer biology. With potential for translation to humans and commercialisation, such a tool will ultimately contribute to improved diagnosis and treatment of cancer. $0
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to map the growth of the integrated stellar mass within galaxy structures over all time, and to explore the link between component growth and the mass of the dark matter halo. The project expects to provide a clear empirical record of galaxy growth, and a statement as to whether the changes seen are consistent with the predictions of numerical simulations. $390,877
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to investigate loss within the contexts of fire, drought and flooding in Western Australia. The project's innovative approach will reveal how community members in rural and urban places make value trade-offs and decisions over desirable futures. The project's expected outcomes will provide insights into acceptable and intolerable losses, and grief and hope, in familiar places. The findings will contribute an analysis of community resilience in the face of socio-economic and environmental threats, and inclusive planning for place-based adaptation. $353,050
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to investigate a novel concept of integrated low-temperature plasma and catalytic membrane hybrid reactor system for alcohols production from methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapour. This research will combine plasma physics and reaction engineering techniques to develop an innovative gas to liquid technology. The outcomes have the potential to transform the nation's natural gas industry, improve energy efficiency, and utilise CO2 rich gas resources. $438,211
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to develop a bio-nanotechnology platform for non-viral genome engineering using dendronised polymers. The project will advance both fundamental and practical knowledge at the forefront of nanotechnology and cell biology, whilst providing training to the research community. Outcomes from the project will also provide significant benefits, such as positioning Australia at the forefront of genome engineering. $604,543
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to investigate the cultural, health and identity impact of gender/sexually-diverse characters, themes and narratives in Australian film and television from 1990 to present. The project expects to generate new knowledge by providing the first comprehensive account of Australian media production's contribution to sexual minority representation, in the context of its importance for fostering healthy identities, and acceptance of minorities to mainstream audiences in a digital media era. This knowledge will provide significant benefit to the mental health, wellbeing and social harmony for both minority and mainstream Australians and help showcase an important aspect of Australian media inclusivity and diversity in international scholarship. $120,763
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to study art made on sheep and cattle station by Aboriginal labourers from the 1880s to the early 1970s, in regions from South-West Australia to Northern Queensland. Australia is said to have been founded 'on the sheep's back', but the experience of Aboriginal labour in Australian pastoralism is little documented. The project will combine the methods of art and labour histories to contextualise carved stock whip handles, early drawings of horses, rock engravings, watercolour paintings and branded shields. The project outcomes will be a reconstruction of Aboriginal experiences of pastoralism in Australia to create a more nuanced history of Aboriginal art before 1970, as well as the history of Australian pastoral industries. $133,493
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to investigate the abundance, diversity and function of fine root endophytes in Australian native and agricultural ecosystems in response to recent genetic data proving they are taxonomically distinct from the well'studied arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi. The project aims to complete a comprehensive field survey, novel molecular analyses and innovative glasshouse experiments. Outcomes should include globally significant insights into fine root endophytes and their role in plant growth. The project will strengthen capacity to predict impacts of global environmental change on ecosystem functions driven by the soil rhizosphere. $313,332
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to link a large'scale ophthalmic database of visual field tests to population-based injury data which includes police-reported crash data, hospitalisation, death and trauma data in people aged over 60 years. The identification of individuals with high risk visual fields will enable the development of targeted interventions at the local, national and international level to prevent injuries due to visual field loss. Significant benefits include a reduction in the number of injuries and consequent reductions in personal harm and health care demands. $227,422
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to identify the molecular mechanisms responsible for the evolution of grasses using the C4 biochemical pathway that enables plants to survive in hot, dry, high-light environments. The endemic Australian subtribe Neurachninae is the only known grass group that contains C4 species, species using the ancestral C3 pathway, as well as species using pathways intermediate to C3 and C4. Through a comparative approach employing high-throughput sequencing technologies, it is expected that the molecular changes underlying the transition from C3 to C4 will be identified. These results should define what is required to engineer plant varieties with increased yield and the ability to withstand climate change effects. $539,900
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to re-evaluate the Italian Wars, a conflict fought between 1494 and 1559 mainly on the Italian peninsula but which reshaped the political map of early modern Europe. The project will investigate newly identified textual and material source to produce a big-event history. Its findings will have significant impact both scholarly and general communities, from identifying new textual and material sources for historical study to potential ramifications for historical warfare interpretation in television, radio and gaming environments. $532,675
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects The project aims to provide an in-depth historical and contemporary comparative analysis of major developments in higher education curriculum policies and practices across the globe. The focus will be on the undergraduate level in research-intensive universities. The outcomes will enrich comparative understandings of developments for universities, governments and influential international organisations, as well as provide an empirical evidence-base that will contribute to the fields of comparative education and support curriculum policy development at university level. $188,418
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to develop nature-inspired metal composites of exceptional mechanical properties that push the known boundaries of engineering materials. The design utilises a phase transforming metal to transcribe the attributes of biopolymers in nacre to harness the exceptional intrinsic strength of interatomic bonds at atomic scale and to devise adaptive ability for load redistribution for toughness at the macroscopic scale. The expected outcomes are an innovative bio-inspired material design strategy that may underpin the creation of many novel high-performance structural composites of unmatched strength and toughness properties, and potential to support new applications and to value-add Australia's materials manufacturing industry. $408,011
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to investigate the many design and implementation issues that would need addressing if State income taxation was restored in Australia. This issue has been debated for many decades since the Commonwealth assumed responsibility for income tax collection in 1942 as a wartime measure. The project's highly innovative approach will involve interdisciplinary and comparative research, involving Australia, Canada, and the United States and as well as an analysis of tax sharing arrangements in Germany. This project will contribute to understanding the policy issues associated with States access to revenue sources and provision of key social services. $229,296
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to develop metallic materials of unprecedented mechanical properties based on a novel concept of transformation triggered dual-phase synergy. This is enabled by harnessing the intrinsic strength of interatomic bonds in solids using the nanoscience principle of lattice strain matching between phase transforming bodies. The project will provide significant benefits, such as innovating our metal production technology and to value-add the metal processing and manufacturing industries of Australia. $453,270
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to advance our ability to describe the efficiency and intensity of ocean mixing. The project will develop and apply innovative techniques to estimate ocean mixing from both traditional ship-based, vertical-profiling turbulence measurements and from autonomous moorings. The project will undertake a re-analysis of historic measurements and obtain new measurements using autonomous systems. The results will be used to develop both a universal relationship describing the efficiency of ocean mixing, and to quantify the underlying length scale controlling mixing intensity. This will enable the development of the next generation of turbulence closure models needed to describe ocean circulation and stirring. $387,152
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to harness the potential of synthetic biology to build cells that can make valuable new derivatives of polyketides. Polyketides are natural products that have proven to be highly effective for use in industry, medicine and agriculture. The technologies developed in this project will provide resources to discover new chemicals, accessible to almost any scientific laboratory. Expected outcomes include the opportunity to put the future of natural product discovery and optimisation in the hands of the wider scientific community, which will provide significant benefits, such as providing new tools for Australian industries. $530,496
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to use advanced image analysis and cloud computing technologies to replace manual, time-consuming and subjective geotechnical engineering practices with a rapid, automated, and more rational approach. A new geo-materials testing system based on the existing triaxial apparatus will be developed that employs three-dimensional image capture hardware and advanced image analysis techniques. The data measured over the entire sample surface will feed into an automated, intelligent parameter selection procedure combining finite element analysis with numerical optimisation techniques. Application of the proposal's findings will allow more accurate and efficient engineering design of transport and energy infrastructure that supports modern economies. $280,724
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to produce new understandings of both the historical drivers of today's urban water systems, and how these systems have impacted on human and ecological welfare. This will be achieved through the first integrated and comparative historical study of the provision, use and cultures of water in Australia's five largest cities from 1900 to the present. Such historical knowledge is critical at a time when the water systems of Australia's largest cities are under growing pressure from environmental change and population growth. Project findings will inform the development of policies and practices that produce sustainable, equitable urban water systems. $379,748
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to use applied mathematics to investigate the onset of tipping points in dynamical systems. Working with clinicians and practicing engineers, the project aims to contribute to the development of new treatment regimes for dynamical diseases and develop improved management strategies for resource focussed engineering industries. This should provide significant benefit to many areas, including the personalised treatment of disease. $461,218
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to advance our understanding of how temperate marine plants in their northern limit will respond to the effects of synergistic stressors from extreme events combined with climate change. The project will study Shark Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage site, where a semi-permanent, salinity gradient maintained by shallow seagrass banks has resulted in unique ecosystems like stromatolites to persist. Expected outcomes include practical solutions for building resilience to climate change mitigation in marine ecosystems. This will benefit the broader Australian community through changing how we manage significant resources and services these systems support, such as fisheries, coastal protection. $525,413
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to discover how invertebrate and vertebrate model species see linearly polarised light by constructing a novel instrument to determine limits to sensitivities, as well as animals' ability to distinguish small differences in degree and angle of linear polarisation. The project aims to predict how this might be affected as environments change. A clear understanding of biological solutions to polarisation perception can inform the design and development of novel bio-inspired imaging sensors that will be particularly suited to small, autonomous robots. $394,402
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to establish trajectories of loneliness across the 10-18 year developmental period in adolescents with neuro-developmental disorders (NDDs). This is significant because adolescence is the peak period for loneliness and the social communication difficulties experienced by adolescents with NDDs place them at greater risk of loneliness. Lower levels of school attendance, connectedness and mental well-being, and higher rates of disruptive behaviour, expulsion, drop-out, depression, social withdrawal, and suicide ideation are strongly linked to loneliness. Therefore predicting critical times in trajectories will enhance emotional, behavioural and school related outcomes and optimise economic, societal and quality of life benefits. $425,150
ARC Linkage Linkage Projects This project aims to better understand the biochemical and molecular basis of trifluralin resistance in annual ryegrass. The herbicide trifluralin is an alternative to soil cultivation in controlling crop-infesting weeds such as annual ryegrass. However, resistance to trifluralin in annual ryegrass now looms. A fundamental understanding and insight into trifluralin resistance will assist resistance management, trifluralin sustainability and soil conservation. This will provide significant benefits for Australian grain production and soil conservation. $358,107
ARC Linkage Linkage Projects This project aims to develop geotechnical design tools, software, and publish design guidelines, for engineers to lay and keep cryogenic pipelines stable on the seabed. Transferring liquefied natural gas between floating tankers and onshore plants conventionally relies on a pipeline on a trestle system. As an alternative, novel subsea cryogenic pipelines are being considered. By ensuring the stability of subsea cryogenic pipelines laid directly on the seabed, this project will provide significant benefits to Australia's liquefied natural gas trade by unlocking substantial cost savings, and making this key export industry more competitive. $220,000
ARC Discovery ARC Future Fellowships This project aims to develop new knowledge for exploring the interaction of terahertz (THz) radiation with different materials. THz technology is in use in diverse applications from security screening to biomedical imaging. A hurdle to the widespread adoption of the technology is the poor understanding of the basic interaction between THz radiation and molecules, proteins, cells and tissues. This project will enable development of advanced THz technology and applications and will lead to accelerated implementation for use in chemistry, biology and, ultimately, medicalapplications such as cancer detection. $870,125
ARC Discovery ARC Future Fellowships This project aims to use house mice, an Australian pest of economic importance which is also a highly tractable system for testing evolutionary theory and generating practical outcomes. Manipulating population sex ratio is a powerful tool for either enhancing the viability of threatened species or decimating pests. However, despite much scientific effort testing sex ratio theory, the cryptic mechanisms driving sex allocation remain unidentified, hindering progress in these fields. The project will identify the mechanisms by which sex ratio adjustments are made and establish how individual-level responses influence insular population structure and growth. It will provide benefits by assisting Australia's efforts in eradicating invasive mouse populations. $754,523
ARC Discovery ARC Future Fellowships This project aims to develop practical new methods of predicting and detecting the formation of solids in gas and liquefied natural gas (LNG) production. Australia has large offshore reserves of natural gas and has made the investments necessary to help fuel the global transition to cleaner, reliable energy sources. However, conventional engineering approaches of producing gas from deep-water reserves have reached the limits of viability because of the costs required to prevent solids forming in subsea pipelines or cryogenic LNG plants. The project's expected outcome include sophisticated tools in open-access software based on these new predictive methods, and a step-change in Australia's ability to access its offshore gas. $998,125
ARC Discovery ARC Future Fellowships This project aims to understand whether animal camouflage patterns can produce the illusion of 3D form. By using the latest techniques in 3D computer imaging, vision science and animal behaviour, this work addresses the previously untested but fundamental theory on 3D camouflage patterns. The development of theory on the ecology and evolution of animal patterning will enhance our understanding of the processes that maintain biological diversity. This research is expected to have broad impact across multiple disciplines and will inform novel military defence strategies and contribute to emerging bio-inspired technologies. $712,800
ARC Discovery ARC Future Fellowships This project aims to transform our understanding of the regulation of meristem functions, with a central hypothesis that plant cell quiescence (repressed cell division) is governed by oxygen and oxidation/reduction (redox)-dependent cues. Meristems are the growing tips of plants, and thus the fundamental unit of plant growth and productivity. This project will develop new knowledge of how plants integrate changes in the environment to regulate meristem activity. This project will define new paradigms of how oxygen and redox status interact with energy and other cues to regulate decisions to grow or quiesce. This will underpin the development of new strategies to optimise crop management and productivity, improve the efficiency of inputs, and reduce the risk of decision making in crop production. $846,222
ARC Discovery ARC Future Fellowships This proposal aims to reveal how the interaction of nuclear RNA and protein molecules control gene regulation in the face of cell stress. To understand how genetic variation leads to changes in the expression of genes, we need new insights into the fundamental principles underpinning complex gene regulatory systems. Building on the discovery of paraspeckles, novel gene regulatory structures, this project will yield insights into gene regulation that will help fill these knowledge gaps. This will provide a more comprehensive understanding of RNA-mediated gene regulation, and will open up new research opportunities to target RNA based gene regulatory complexes. $878,125
ARC Discovery ARC Future Fellowships This project aims to reveal the physical origin of the large variety of galaxies in the universe by utilising multi-wavelength observations of nearby galaxies combined with advanced data analysis techniques and cutting-edge numerical simulations. The project expects to generate new knowledge in the area of astrophysics by providing a physically-motivated foundation to the subjective and qualitative taxonomic scheme generally used to understand how galaxies, and ultimately stars and planets, formed and evolve. $853,125
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to give experimental answers to long existing theoretical questions about the origins and nature of dark matter. Dark matter is a fundamental component of the universe, yet the nature of its composition is still unknown. There is growing evidence that dark matter is comprised of low mass and weakly interacting particles. By developing ultra-precise measurement tools and new techniques, this project aims to perform a stringent and comprehensive new laboratory search for ultra-light dark matter particles, over likely mass ranges not yet searched. The knowledge gained will provide economic benefits through commercialisation and stimulation of new research and development, and to defence through applications in radar, communications and sensing. $530,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects Computer vision applications rely heavily on deep learning, which is highly vulnerable to being fooled by adding subtle perturbations to object/image textures that are imperceptible to humans. This project aims to develop defense mechanisms to detect and remove adversarial patterns from the input images. The project expects to advance knowledge in understanding the vulnerabilities of deep learning, and to design deep learning architectures that are inherently robust. The outcomes of this project will increase the security and reliability of computer vision by detecting, reporting and nullifying such attacks and will benefit the general public and industry on many fronts. $426,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to examine public secondary schools- engagements with parents in disadvantaged communities. Through policy analysis and case studies, the project seeks to advance knowledge about how school autonomy reforms are potentially reshaping meanings and practices associated with public schooling. Expected outcomes include enhanced knowledge about the shifting nature of schooling reform in Australia and insights into evolving relationships between governments and citizens in public service delivery. Intended benefits include insights to inform future policy design and implementation at school and system levels. $261,159
ARC Discovery Discovery Early Career Researcher Award This project aims to investigate a novel scheme that uses signals present in interferometers to directly control and stabilise the shapes of mirrors to atomic scale precision. The discovery of gravitational waves from colliding black holes and neutron stars was made possible by the development of large'scale, high-laser-power interferometers. The project builds on experience with current detectors and aims to develop techniques that will provide the next leap in sensitivity by improving control of the quantum state of light. The project will also test a new technique called white light resonance, which has the revolutionary capability of increasing sensitivity over a broad frequency range. The project will help maintain Australia's significant impact on the worldwide effort to harness gravitational waves. $338,774
ARC Discovery Discovery Early Career Researcher Award This project aims to investigate the flow transition from laminar to turbulent in the wake of a circular cylinder subjected to steady current. The project expects to generate new knowledge on the complicated flow behaviours and physical mechanisms for flow transition to turbulence through advanced numerical modelling. Expected outcomes include a physical understanding of the flow evolution to turbulence, as well as an understanding of the laminar and turbulent flow characteristics and the suppression of turbulence in the context of flow control. The knowledge generated will be applicable to improved design and safe operations of the sub'sea transmission and communication cables used in the offshore oil and gas industry and the emerging offshore renewable energy industry. $314,574
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to use chemical approaches to develop molecular transistors, which are critical components for a future molecular electronics technology. The use of molecules as ultra-miniaturised electronic components is gathering attention from industry and academia, as a solution to the approaching limits of top-down scaling. However, current molecular designs based on gating through chemical reaction or redox state changes are slow and inefficient. The project will develop molecular transistors with exceptionally high gain and fast response based on gating the energy of quantum interference features in molecules with cross-conjugated or ring-like shapes. This will provide significant benefits including new strategies for nanofabrication of molecular devices. $420,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to use a solution of natural oil resin extract in carbon dioxide to break problematic water-in-crude oil emulsions with no secondary environmental consequences. Extracted crude oil contains water, which can result in problematic water-in-crude oil emulsions. These can be difficult to break into separate water and oil phases with potentially severe economic and environmental consequences. In Australia, such oilfield emulsion problems are frequently encountered in both the Bass Strait and across the Carnarvon Basin. The treatment option proposed will target both asphaltene and silt stabilised water-in-oil emulsions and will be readily deployable. $395,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to examine the steps taken by the visual system to code the shape of objects, including those that change shape over time. The project seeks to employ experiments assessing human vision and machine learning techniques to examine these codes and, in particular, focus on the advantages of a system that exaggerates shape change over time. Expected outcomes include an improved shape code based on superior human performance that can have many applications in automated visual systems. This project can directly benefit the animation industries where the creation of realistic movement of humans and animals remains a computationally intensive challenge. $419,137
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to develop experimentally verified models for designing and monitoring of hydraulic fractures with constricted openings, to ensure adequate and robust hydraulic fracture control for example in petroleum production. Hydraulic fractures are often constricted by bridges that hold two sides of the fracture together. Failure to account for bridges and constriction of fractures can lead to premature screen-out (exceeding available pump pressure) of proppant and inadequate fracking control. The project results are expected to substantially increase the accuracy of design and monitoring of fracture opening, geometry and fluid flow to improve efficiency, safety and environmental security of the resource and energy extraction. $410,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Early Career Researcher Award This project aims to determine the optimal use of geophysical methods to model the Australian crust in four dimensions. These models provide an understanding of the tectonic history of a region and thus its mineral potential. Mineral resources are mostly being found undercover, requiring geophysical data to locate them. This project will combine recent developments in modelling geological uncertainty with data acquired for locating zones of mineralisation. The outcomes will help guide Australian government policy to draw on publicly-available datasets that provide a basis for mineral exploration performed by companies, and supported by research institutions. $330,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to use the microwave communication links of low earth and/or medium earth orbit satellites to achieve three dimensional tomographic reconstruction of rainfall. The path loss of microwave signals due to rainfall, known as rain attenuation can be used to measure rain. Similar to using X-ray to carry out human-body CT scans. With the aid of advanced signal processing techniques, the proposed method will achieve 3D measurements with resolution and coverage unachievable before, paving the way for innovative water relevant applications such as hydrology and agriculture, and new findings in atmospheric research. $465,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to identify how children's experiences of maternal incarceration shape their life course. These children are one of the most vulnerable yet invisible groups in society and are rising in number. This project intends to interrogate system contact with child protection, justice, education and health agencies using a unique linked dataset across 30 years and over three generations, to describe social and economic outcomes and how prison, child and maternal characteristics affect them. The project expects to provide critical evidence that can inform prevention strategies, with the potential to disrupt intergenerational patterns of profound disadvantage and reduce the social and economic costs of maternal incarceration to individuals and society. $427,234
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to use knowledge of finite simple groups to tackle problems in graph symmetry. The symmetry of an object is encoded by a group, and this allows tools from algebra to be used to study graphs. The main impact will be in areas of pure mathematics such as graph theory and group theory by obtaining new classifications and constructions. Expected outcomes include providing new constructions and classifications of highly symmetric graphs, and an improved knowledge and understanding of local symmetries for graphs of higher valencies so that they become as well understood as the valency three case. $240,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to develop a new, comprehensive measure of six major dimensions of autistic traits in healthy adults. High levels of autistic traits are associated with atypical patterns of attention in healthy adults. However autistic traits are multidimensional, with some dimensions weakly correlated, and few studies have assessed sensory sensitivity, a key trait dimension. This project will investigate the specific relationships of autistic traits to key attentional phenomena including left-visual-field bias, attention to detail at the expense of integrative processing, and the attraction of attention to emotional stimuli. Linking behavioural and cognitive features of autistic traits will inform models of the development of autism. $360,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Early Career Researcher Award This project aims to investigate and analyse the introduction, design and implementation of mandatory child vaccination programs in Italy, France, Australia and California, using a comparative case study approach. Parental rejection of childhood vaccines can cause illness and death. However, governments limiting personal liberty can erode public acceptance. The project's goal is to provide the tools, framework and conceptual clarity to help researchers and policymakers consider the merits and limitations of strategies which mandate childhood vaccination. $405,751
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to use ecological models and field experiments to uncover drivers and critical thresholds for turf expansion. Habitat loss is a leading threat to goods and services from the oceans. Globally, kelp forests are collapsing and being replaced by persistent unwanted algal -turfs-. Understanding of this habitat shift is rudimentary, and solutions to mitigate the impacts virtually non-existent. Through stress experiments and genomic analyses, this project aims to discover resilient kelps that promote forest persistence under stress. By expanding our understanding of critical habitat transitions, and exploring new solutions, this project aims to enhance our capacity to respond to the ongoing degradation of Australia's Great Southern Reef. $460,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to develop a novel metal materials design strategy to break the strength ceilings of nanocrystalline metals and bulk metallic glasses. This strategy is based on a novel concept of synergy between a bulk amorphous matrix and phase-transforming nanocrystallites embedded within. The nanocrystallites, via their uniform transformation lattice distortion, prevent the formation of shear bands in the amorphous matrix and enable collective atomic load transfer to allow the amorphous matrix to continue to load to achieve its intrinsic near-ideal strength. The amorphous matrix eliminates the grain boundary plasticity of the nanoscrystallites. This concept is novel and untested in the history of physical metallurgy. $400,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Early Career Researcher Award This project aims to investigate individual differences in facial prejudice, a powerful psychological bias whereby people rely on inaccurate first impressions to guide key decisions, such as whom to trust. Utilising recent advances in electrophysiology, the project will develop a new neural marker of individual differences in facial impressions that lead to prejudice. The project expects to lead to insights into the link between visual perception and social behaviour, and to develop strategies to reduce facial prejudice given the pervasive influence it has on everyday life. $404,956
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to develop highly conductive organometallic molecular wires for use in future molecular electronics technology. Metal complexes have immense potential as components in future electronic circuits, offering function on a size impossible to meet in conventional solid'state devices, and helping overcome limits in 'top-down' scaling. Whilst organic molecules that display electronic function are known, their performance remains poor. Just as doping a semiconductor results in higher electrical conductance by placing additional electrons (holes) into the conduction (valence) band, this project will use transition metal organometallic complexes bearing radical ligands as innovative motifs in the design of novel molecular components. $438,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to investigate the co-evolution of life and environments during Earth's first two billion years using iron-rich chemical sediments deposited from global oceans. The project expects to generate knowledge of Earth's transition into a planet habitable for complex life by combining nanoscale characterisation techniques, with laboratory experiments and theoretical modelling. Expected outcomes include transformative ideas about the role of life in iron and phosphorus cycles, the chemistry of the early ocean, ancient biological productivity, the antiquity of oxygenic photosynthesis and the rise of oxygen. The project will also deliver new conceptual models for the formation of the host-rocks for most of the world's iron resources, improving how we explore for iron in the Earth's crust. This should provide benefits to understanding geobiology on Earth and other planets. $430,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to examine how evolution in plants shortcuts the creation of new proteins by burying one within another. Scientists now realise that new genes and proteins appear frequently. A recent discovery in plant seeds involves DNA sequence insertions in a gene that makes two proteins instead of one. This project will reveal a new family of buried seed proteins, determine the rules for burying them and search plants for new examples. The first examples from plants create strongly bioactive products so the ability to dig for similar plant events will reveal new and bioactive natural products with biomedical and biotechnology applications. $422,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to develop new gas separation technologies that combine novel materials and pressure swing adsorption cycles to deliver inexpensive industrial processes capable of both high recovery and high purity products. The project will advance our ability to manipulate the phenomenon of regulated guest admission into microporous materials, and integrate such materials within new types of dual-reflux adsorption cycles that deliver multiple refined gas products. Successful implementation of these industrial developments will increase Australia's access to cheap supplies of natural gas, encourage the broader use of biomass, lower the carbon emissions of industrial processes, and efficiently recover high-value compounds only present at trace concentrations. $646,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to develop a fundamental understanding of the response of saturated sand in seabeds during rapid penetration by offshore site investigation tools and foundation construction. The research is using innovative physical and advanced numerical modelling techniques to quantify the significant increase in sand resistance caused by rapid penetration, enabling reliable design and reducing risk of material failure associated with the high impact forces. Expected outcomes of the project include a conceptual framework and scientific-based design tool to predict the geotechnical performance of offshore installations. The research will provide the necessary scientific advances to install, moor and service offshore wind and wave energy devices more economically and efficiently. $335,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to enhance understanding of how people process visual scenes containing multiple moving objects of interest. The project intends to measure human visual performance to determine how the brain processes multiple motion signals simultaneously. Expected outcomes include an increased understanding of how we are able to use an evolving visual scene to distinguish between changes due to self-motion and those due to the motion of multiple moving objects such as crowded city footpaths and busy roads. The results will improve our understanding of failures to see moving objects in challenging viewing conditions (for example, high density traffic), and inform work in the design of autonomous driving and augmented reality display systems. $390,724
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to investigate the new African Diaspora in Australia and its embrace of Pentecostalism. The African community in Australia has often been associated with poor settlement outcomes, and has also been subject to racialised moral panic regarding so-called -African gangs.- This project will use new methods to understand the role of Pentecostal translocal and transnational networks in supporting African communities to overcome the challenges of settlement. The project expects to contribute to policy efforts to improve outcomes for new African arrivals in Australia. $279,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to develop an integrative computational model that explains how people prioritise the allocation of resources to different goals in the face of uncertainty. The project seeks to test a new theory through a series of experiments in which participants pursue goals by themselves in unpredictable environments, or in competition against an opponent. Expected outcomes include an integrated theory that accounts for the effects of both environmental and social uncertainty in the pursuit of multiple goals. Intended benefits include the development of computational models that can simulate human decision making in complex environments, analyse new concepts of operation, redesign work roles, and identify factors that reduce risk in decision-making. $410,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Early Career Researcher Award This project aims to develop rigorous, physics-based models to accurately predict hydrodynamics of floating offshore structures at different scales. The project will address the issue between laboratory-to-field scaling, a fundamental problem in fluid dynamics. This outcome will be achieved through the integration of numerical technology, with physical modelling and field data acquisition. The outputs from this project will reduce risks and improve operability of existing offshore structures, and lead to more efficient design for potential floating offshore projects. This will benefit the whole community of floating offshore structures and cement Australia's place as a pioneer in offshore industry and emerging renewable energy sector. $386,552
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to discover plant processes and plant proteins that can be the target for new herbicides. Australia's food security is being threatened by a rise in resistance to herbicides, the chemicals relied on to control weeds. In over 20 years a truly new herbicide has not appeared. This project aims to provide validated new targets to engage agrochemical industry and accelerate the rate farmers get tools to manage problematic weeds, the major yield penalty for both developed and developing world agriculture. The project expects enable effective collaboration with industry to develop new herbicides. $516,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to obtain new insights into the thermodynamic and transport properties of mixtures containing water, particularly at high pressures, that impact directly on our understanding of climate change processes. The project will involve the use of a polarisable potential for water which has recently been demonstrated to yield predictions of high accuracy. It will be used to model saline water mixtures containing carbon dioxide, resulting in valuable data for thermodynamic properties of the world's oceans. These data are of crucial importance for accurate climate change predictions and as such the project will have an important impact on understanding our changing environment. $420,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to shape the next generation of efficient randomised algorithms in the field of group theory, the mathematics of symmetry. Fundamental mathematics underpins modern technological tasks such as web searches, sorting and data compression. This project aims to determine characteristic statistical fingerprints of key building-block groups. These group statistics lead to much faster procedures to essentially factor huge groups into smaller building-block groups in a manner akin to factoring an integer into its prime factors. The anticipated goal is to include the outcomes in publicly available symbolic algebra computer packages. As the theory of symmetry has broad applications in the mathematical and physical sciences, there is the potential for far reaching benefits. $440,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Early Career Researcher Award This project aims to apply a comparative experimental and analytical approach to quantify linkages among multiple stressors driving kelp forest loss and expansion of turfs across three continents. Transformations of kelp forests to turf reefs are associated with a profound loss of ecological productivity and function, with significant impacts for societies reliant on the biodiversity and functioning of kelp ecosystems. Field and laboratory experiments will be used to develop and test -green gravel-, a novel restoration tool that aims to overcome reinforcing feedbacks (lack spores and hard substrate) preventing recovery of kelp forests. This will provide significant benefits by identifying solutions to address loss of kelp forests in Australia and globally. $414,814
ARC Discovery Discovery Early Career Researcher Award This project aims to investigate important open problems lying at the intersection of two areas of mathematics, extremal combinatorics and finite geometry. The project will focus on the area of discrete mathematics, which has been at the centre of some of recent developments in mathematics and computer science. This project proposes new methods, derived from algebra, geometry and computer science, to tackle important extremal problems in finite geometry. The project will provide answers to a number of open problems in extremal combinatorics and finite geometry. Moreover, new methods will be developed which will have an interdisciplinary impact. $381,000

This facility will enable testing of larger sample numbers in smaller quantities and support research in emerging areas, such as the study of drugs, new materials and soils. It is also expected to open up new opportunities in areas such as metabolomics and oil and gas processing, and expand capacity to meet the increasing demand. $415,000
ARC Linkage Linkage Projects Following a previous project that showed that it is possible and beneficial to teach the modern Einsteinian paradigm of space, time, matter, light and gravity to students as young as 8 years old, this project aims to test and evaluate a seamless progression of learning modern physics through primary and secondary school. It will sequence, integrate and test research-informed teaching and learning materials, and assessment instruments developed through a 7-nation collaboration. Research across 24 schools will be reviewed by a panel drawn from professional organisations and curriculum authorities, and learning resources will be widely disseminated, with view to worldwide introduction of Einsteinian science at school. $898,560
ARC Linkage Linkage Projects This project aims to assess the viability of potential shale oil and gas reserves, using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) core analysis and well logging techniques to characterise shale samples. Shale oil and gas reserves have the potential to provide a rapidly dispatchable energy source, which could play a key role as a transition fuel to renewable energy. The project will develop techniques to deliver quantitative fluid typing, producible porosity, pore sizes and permeability measurements for shale samples, which could be used in the shale gas and oil industry. These techniques will improve the predictability of shale field developments that better inform their economic and environmental impact. $290,521
ARC Linkage Linkage Projects This project aims to develop an industry guideline for suction caisson foundations, that are a new form of fixed platform anchor, for offshore wind turbines.

Using supercomputer'simulations and kinematic observations, this project strives to solve the mystery of how galactic spin drives observable galaxy properties and interacts with invisible dark matter. Expected outcomes include pivotal theoretical developments published in top-ranked science journals and a legacy of public simulation data. This interdisciplinary project will benefit Australia's key position in spectroscopic imaging and radio astronomy, advance technological frontiers, forge lasting collaborations and attract new intellect to the country. $885,923
ARC Discovery ARC Future Fellowships The project will conduct the human factors research urgently required to discover how best to make automation in high-risk work settings more transparent and usable by humans. In safety-critical work contexts such as defence and aviation, automated decision aids improve human decision-making. Unfortunately however, catastrophic accidents have occurred because human operators have either not followed correct automated advice, or followed incorrect automated advice. A series of human factors studies using unmanned vehicle control, air traffic control, and submarine track management tasks (including testing experts in field settings) will discover how best to design transparent automation that can be safely and efficiently used by humans. $1,038,694
ARC Discovery ARC Future Fellowships This Fellowship aims to establish a novel dynamically installed anchor shape for economic and safer mooring of floating gas drilling platforms in Australia's deep water calcareous seabed.

Health and Medical Research Research Fellowship Over the past 10 years I have used genome wide technologies and large surveys of biological systems to identify and annotate genes within our genomes, predict how they work together to encode the hundreds of cell types that makeup our bodies, and how the activities of these cell types is coordinated within tissues to allow us to have complex multicellular functions. I aim to apply these systems biology approaches to cancer and genetic disease. $717,275
Health and Medical Research Research Fellowship Mitochondria are responsible for the production of more than 90 percent of the energy required by the cell. Therefore mitochondrial dysfunction they cause and contribute significantly to a range of diseases including metabolic disorders, neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity and cancer. We will discover how mitochondrial function fails in these common diseases and develop targeted treatments for these diseases targeting mitochondrial dysfunction. $792,275
Health and Medical Research Research Fellowship Synthetic biology enables molecules and cells to be programmed with new functions. Oliver Rackham is a pioneer in this burgeoning field and is harnessing the tremendous potential of synthetic biology to create new therapeutic technologies. These include protein-based gene therapies and genetic approaches for the discovery of new antibiotics. $649,175
Health and Medical Research Early Career Fellowships The death of an unborn baby is a tragedy that deeply affects families and wider society.There are 2.6 million deaths like this world-wide every year.In Australia twice as many deaths occur than other similar countries but we don-t know why.This research will investigate why the rate is higher in Australia, particularly in rural/remote areas.It will also look at a prevention strategy than can be used when women go for check-ups during pregnancy. $327,192
Health and Medical Research Postgraduate Scholarships Bronchiectasis is a lung disease associated with chronic infection and inflammation that has prevalence of 1.5 percent in Aboriginal Australian children and occurs in early childhood, is associated with co-morbidities and causes premature mortality. Bronchiectasis is largely preventable in children when diagnosed and treated early. The study aims to determine better ways to diagnose bronchiectasis earlier and to facilitate effective management in Aboriginal children in Western Australia. $56,237
Health and Medical Research Postgraduate Scholarships Depressive features in late-life frequently co-occur with cognitive decline, but are often treated by clinicians as distinct. Despite this, depressive symptoms increase the risk of dementia, suggesting a degree of overlap in illness trajectories. This project will apply novel analytic methods to clarify neurobiological predictors of cognitive decline in those with depression, and quantify common and unique brain-based biomarkers across those with established depression and dementia. $88,502
Health and Medical Research TRIP Fellowships Chronic suppurative lung disease is an important health burden for Aboriginal adults but can largely be prevented if chronic wet cough in children can be detected and effectively treated. Unfortunately chronic wet cough is often considered as normal in Aboriginal children. Effective interventions will be implemented for overcoming barriers to timely health care seeking by families for children with chronic wet cough, and for facilitating optimal treatment of ongoing wet cough. $181,066
Health and Medical Research Project Medulloblastoma is a childhood brain cancer. Many patients will be cured, but almost all survivors will suffer serious side effects later in life due to the radiation used in treatment. To reduce side effects, we seek new treatments that need less radiation. We found two drugs that increase cancer cell death when used with with radiation. We will test the drugs with low doses of radiation to find out if they are as good as, if not better than, treatments that use high doses of radiation. $666,110
Health and Medical Research Project Osteoporosis, or porous bone, is a disease characterized by low bone mass and structural deterioration of bone tissue, leading to bone fragility and an increased susceptibility to fractures, which is a devastating disorder with significant physical, psychosocial, and financial consequences. The proposed project will investigate SNX10 and ATG5 as a novel regulators of osteoclast bone resorption and potential future therapeutic targets. $786,560
Health and Medical Research Project Mesothelioma is an incurable asbestos induced cancer. We think that a person's genetic makeup plays a large part in their sensitivity to asbestos and this project aims to figure out which specific genes have this property. The results will help us to identify which asbestos-exposed people and their families are most at risk of developing mesothelioma. But perhaps more importantly this work will help to identify new targets for the next generation of treatments for this cancer. $809,405
Health and Medical Research Project There is increasing confusion about labelling and treating airway diseases because -asthma- and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (-COPD-) mean different things to different people and they overlap with regard to symptoms and abnormalities in the lung. This project will define the abnormalities in the lung and relate them to symptoms in a general population, without using diagnostic labels, to establish descriptors of airway diseases that better relate to treatments and prognosis. $1,350,471
Health and Medical Research Project Dysfunctional mitochondria cause a diverse group of multi'system human pathologies that often result in severe, progressive and lethal diseases for which there are no effective treatments. This project will use important new models of mitochondrial disease to examine the onset, progression and pathophysiology of these disorders - revealing the reasons for the tissue'specific effects and providing a basis for future treatments. $615,591
Health and Medical Research Project Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed malignancy and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in men. Currently, the mechanisms, which contribute to the occurrence and progression of prostate cancer, are poorly understood. We have created models of prostate cancer to understand how specific gene mutations can lead to the pathogenesis of this disease. We will use these models to validate the use of this gene as a biomarker and treatment target for prostate cancer. $802,389
Health and Medical Research Project Liver cancer has the second highest mortality rate of all cancers, its incidence in Australia is increasing, and current treatment options are very limited. A recent, large study of liver cancer has highlighted several protective 'tumour suppressor genes' that are found dormant in liver cancer patients. We are developing tailored therapies to simultaneously restore the activity of these genes to control the spread and relapse of these cancers, while rendering them more sensitive to chemotherapy. $1,139,460
Health and Medical Research Project The orbit comprises soft tissue which insulates the eye and optic nerve as it passes back to the brain. Elevated orbital pressure is common. However, little is known about its pressure nor how it influences pressures within the optic nerve and its relationship to brain fluid pressure. This study will measure the orbital pressure and its relationship to adjacent structures. $680,924
Health and Medical Research Project In this project we will demonstrate the benefit of our new approach for accurately identifying the placement of surgically implanted invasive electrode arrays and epileptic seizure onset zones identified by them, relative to brain anatomy. Our technique employs our unique non-linear biomechanical model of the brain and has potential to dramatically increase the number of epilepsy patients benefiting from precisely targeted surgery - the only curative treatment for epilepsy. $375,025
Health and Medical Research Project We have been studying the importance of the epithelial cells lining the airways in the nose and lungs. We have discovered that the type of genes expressed in nose and the lower airway are extremely similar and that some are associated with asthma. This study will look at the epithelial cells in the nose at birth to determine if differences in gene signature patterns contribute towards the number and severity of viral infections in early lifer and the development of wheeze and allergy. $1,942,732
Health and Medical Research Project We have developed promising new anti-cancer drugs which enable drug access into cancers which are normally impenetrable. We are now seeking funds to optimize these drugs and develop combination therapies for pancreatic cancer, an aggressive and incurable disease. We expect that these new treatment options will lead to reduced metastatic spreading, enhanced response to chemo- and immunotherapies and improved overall patient survival. $892,284
Health and Medical Research Project Preterm birth is the leading cause of neonatal death in Australia today. Infants born at the border of viability (21-23 weeks gestation) continue to suffer unacceptably high rates of death or life-long disease. This proposal is to use an established sheep model of pregnancy to develop EVE Therapy, a novel therapeutic platform for extremely preterm infants, for clinical use. $794,762
Health and Medical Research National Institute for Health Research Anxiety is a debilitating symptom affecting many people with autism. However, we do not know how effective and how well tolerated are the medications, which are used to treat anxiety in the general population, when prescribed to people with autism. To answer this question we propose a clinical trial of one anxiety medication (sertraline) across five sites in two countries. We will recruit over 300 adults with autism and half with receive the active drug and half a placebo or dummy medication. $557,029
Health and Medical Research Targeted Research Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island (ATSI) populations are ageing. We do not know what is healthy ageing for ATSI people, nor the lifestyle and health factors that help older people achieve healthy ageing. We will address this problem by working with ATSI people from our previous studies of middle-aged and older people to determine what is healthy ageing and how we can best support this. $931,119
Health and Medical Research Investigator I will study how bacteria found in the nose and throat influence the risk of pneumonia in young children. I will study bacteria as part of an ecosystem, rather than looking at isolated bacteria. I am interested how bacteria interact and how viral infections or antibiotics may change the bacterial ecology. This will help us understand why and how pneumonia develops, allow us to develop tools to predict which children will be at risk, and identify new ways of preventing or treating pneumonia. $2,178,912
Health and Medical Research Investigator My research has translated to ways to reduce acute rheumatic fever (ARF), rheumatic heart disease (RHD) and Group A Streptococcal (GAS) diseases globally and in Australia. We are on track to implement a strategy to eliminate RHD in Australia. However, there remain evidence gaps. My research will focus on four of these: Practical primordial prevention (dealing with the root causes); A GAS vaccine; New approaches to ARF diagnosis and treatment; A better form of long-acting penicillin. $1,761,301
Health and Medical Research Investigator Acute respiratory infection affects the lungs and is the commonest reason Australian children are admitted to hospital. Many treatments are available, but it is unclear how best to use them. Vaccines can prevent specific infections but are underused. We must urgently determine which current and future therapies are most effective to prevent or treat respiratory infection. Our multi-faceted program will decrease ARI incidence and morbidity, guide optimal therapy and conserve healthcare resources. $1,288,140
Health and Medical Research Investigator Autism is a lifelong developmental condition that is diagnosed in 2 percent of Australians. This research program aims to significantly advance knowledge in three areas that are key to improving long-term wellbeing in children with autism. By combining expertise from a range of fields, the program will increase our understanding of why some children develop autism, which therapies are most effective in reducing disability and how we can incorporate scientific findings into clinical practice. $3,103,030
Health and Medical Research Investigator The genome of a cell is covered in chemical tags that can turn genes on or off. The patterns of these epigenetic tags are different in each type of cell, and can be disrupted in adult stem cells, specialized cells made from them, and disease states. This research will pioneer new experimental procedures and molecular tools to edit and correct aberrant epigenetic patterns in disease, and in stem cells and derived cells, providing import outcomes for biomedical research and regenerative medicine. $3,355,625
Health and Medical Research Investigator Healthy skin and healthier lives are a high priority for Australia's Indigenous children to live longer and stronger. Dr Bowen leads a program of research which aims to improve the recognition, treatment and prevention of skin sores and scabies in Indigenous children living in the Kimberley region of WA. This research will inform strategies to reduce skin infections in Indigenous people from other areas of Australia, and in doing so, also prevent severe infections and rheumatic fever. $1,244,044
Health and Medical Research Development Grants The Noisy Guts Project translates the gut's grumbling noises into data that can be used to improve gut health. We use artificial intelligence to recognise patterns in gut noises. Our research finds that specific gut disorders have a unique sound signature. We have demonstrated that our belt diagnoses Irritable Bowel Syndrome with 87 percent accuracy. Our aim now is to expand the belt's capabilities so that it can non-invasively and accurately diagnose and monitor other gut disorders and diseases. $276,863
Health and Medical Research Partnership Projects Chronic wet cough in Aboriginal children is the dominant symptom of disease that commonly lead to permanent lung damage and premature death. Timely detection and optimal management of chronic wet cough in Aboriginal children can prevent a substantial proportion of chronic lung disease in adults. We will use implementation science to determine barriers and facilitators to optimal treatment of chronic wet cough. We will develop and implement strategies to improve detection and management of cough $1,429,677
Health and Medical Research Partnership Projects This project seeks to understand the current status of student wellbeing in South Australia, and the ways that schools and the Department of Education support the mental health of their students. This project will identify gaps and inefficiencies in the system, opportunities for improvement, and these findings will be translated into a suite of tools, resources and guidelines purpose-built to support principals, school counsellors and teachers to respond to their students- mental health needs. $236,437
Health and Medical Research Investigator Following the success of our new form of glaucoma surgery more than 75,000 patients have been treated worldwide, but significant complications do still occur. We propose to introduce new techniques and knowledge to further improve the clinical outcomes but also investigate a completely new approach to glaucoma surgery. Our new UV laser based technique will use an ultrafine intraocular probe to cut and open drainage channels to remove the excess fluid that is characteristic of glaucoma. $2,348,640
Health and Medical Research Investigator The effect of the use of medications during pregnancy on the developing baby can range from completely harmless to catastrophic. For many medications, the associated risks are unknown. This research will examine the health of women and their children that have been treated with a range of strong medications used to treat conditions such as severe pain, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, opioid dependence, severe anxiety, and sleep disorders, using routinely collected state health data. $639,750

ARC Discovery Discovery Early Career Researcher Award This project aims to advance knowledge of livestock breed extinctions and domestication in the climate change era. Through the first nationwide qualitative study of rare breed farmers, this project will produce fine-grained data on the values and practices of rare breed farmers, while raising awareness of the challenges they face in their critical conservation work. The project's findings are expected to provide innovative perspectives on human-animal relations and meat consumption in contemporary Australia. Benefits to rare breed farmers and the Australian community are anticipated through determining how Australia's livestock genetic diversity can best be supported for a food secure future. $422,108
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects There is a degree of public anxiety on how unconventional gases is extracted. Horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing are two key enabling technologies to extract unconventional gases. But, the current study reveals well and field productivities exhibit steep declines. This implies that current practice may not be sustainable. The successful completion of this project will provide a scientific approach to look at the sustainability issue through testing a hypothesis that the properties of rock blocks between hydraulic fractures determine the sustainability of gas production instead of hydraulic fracturing. $370,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects The Project aims to chart the evolution of the Earth's primordial mantle and oceans between 3.75 and 2.8 billion years ago using calcium and strontium isotopes in ancient igneous and sedimentary rocks. A novel solution to the controversy over the timing and rate of growth of the Earth's continents is expected. Anticipated outcomes include the establishment of innovative analytical tools for tracing geological and environmental processes, and stronger collaborative links with premier research institutions abroad. The significant benefits of the Project include an enhanced understanding of the environment in which early life evolved, and fresh insight into the formation of the richly mineralized nucleus of the Australian continent. $390,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects High quality lattice mismatched semiconductor heterostructures are core enabling technologies for next generation electronic and optoelectronic devices with new functions and features such as monolithic integration, lower production costs, larger wafer size, and better system robustness. This project will generate new science on defect generation in lattice mismatched hetero-epitaxy with the aim of developing novel strategies for their minimisation. The direct outcome will be higher quality HgCdTe materials on lattice mismatched Si or III-V substrates with defect density low enough for fabricating high performance mid-wave and long-wave infrared arrays with features of lower cost, larger array format size, and higher operating temperature. $494,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects Insects secrete onto their surface a cocktail of high melting-point waxes. These biological compounds have been found to be involved in communication but are also thought to protect the insect from water loss and pathogen invasion. Insects represent the most abundant group of animals on Earth. It has been suggested that the dual role of surface waxes in ecological adaptation and reproduction may be key to their remarkable divergence. However, little is known of the function of individual compounds within mixtures of insect waxes. Using chemical analysis, neurophysiology and whole animal performance, the aim of this project is to provide a detailed understanding of the function of insect surface wax with potential for bioinspired products. $300,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects Our proposal is motivated by and based upon the successful representation of time series as a network (or graph). We construct an abstract representation of a system from measurements of its changing behaviour over time. Properties of that structure (the network) then allow us to infer diagnostic information of the system. Specifically, we propose to apply this to livestock welfare during transport. By measuring the biological and environment condition of the animal we construct a network representation of that system. Geometric features of that network can then be used to infer health or duress of the subject. This proposal will develop the generic mathematical machinery to connect geometric features of the network with system behaviour. $360,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to use new techniques in wireless neural recording to reveal how small neural networks process visual information to make fast, accurate decisions. The project is designed to generate new knowledge about biological solutions to contextual information processing and how tiny, simple biological neural systems control critical animal behaviours such as predator avoidance. Expected outcomes will be new biological insights with which to develop novel bio-inspired decision-making processing systems as required in small, autonomous robots. The anticipated benefits of this project will be advances in fundamental neuroscience and animal behaviour and is expected to provide significant value to a fast-developing industrial sector. $475,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects The evolution of cognition is a fundamentally important yet poorly researched area. It has recently become clear that rather than measuring cognitive performance between species, understanding the causes of intraspecific variation in cognitive performance is vital to accurately measure the selective benefits of cognition. Recent groundbreaking research on Australian magpies has revealed individual differences in cognitive performance are influenced by differences in sociality. This proposal will determine the causality of these results by examining the developmental and fitness consequences of individual differences in cognitive performance in relation to social interactions, thus directly addressing the sociality-cognition debate. $415,494
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects Advances in digital technologies are underpinned by powerful mathematics; use of symmetry greatly simplifies complex problems. This project aims to exploit the mathematical theory of groups to advance our understanding of combinatorial designs with exceptional symmetry. New designs have become prominent through links with networks and error correcting codes. The project expects to generate constructions and classifications in these areas by utilising powerful group theory. As well as innovative methods for studying designs with symmetry based on group actions, expected outcomes include enhanced international collaboration, and highly trained combinatorial mathematicians to strengthen Australia's research standing in fundamental science. $410,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Early Career Researcher Award Most of the known molecular compounds exist in crystalline form, and their stability and properties depend upon the structure and interactions in crystals. This project aims to develop methods in the field of quantum crystallography to accurately estimate the electronic properties of molecular crystals, their stability, and associated energetics. The outcomes will be directly applicable in the design of new solid'state forms of pharmaceutical drugs with enhanced solubility and efficacy and hence reduced drug dosage. Understanding the electronic properties in molecular semiconductor crystals, and the strategies to tune and control these properties will contribute to future generation electronic device material manufacturing. $393,116
ARC Discovery Discovery Early Career Researcher Award Problems with anxiety tear at the social and economic fabric of our nation. Individuals with an elevated vulnerability to experience high levels of anxiety display a heightened tendency to expect that the future will be emotionally negative. The current project will test compelling new hypotheses concerning the cognitive mechanisms that causally underpin such negative expectancies, using cutting-edge cognitive methodologies that permit not only the sensitive assessment, but also the direct manipulation, of these mechanisms. The findings generated will exert major scientific impact, and will directly contribute to our national strategic efforts to improve the mental well-being of our citizens, and to build healthy and resilient communities. $409,038
ARC Discovery Discovery Early Career Researcher Award This project aims to investigate the scientific lives and contributions of women in the development of a particular discipline; using Pacific archaeology as a case study. The history of science has traditionally produced gender biased narratives, so an innovative interdisciplinary approach will be developed to document the hidden role of women in the history of archaeology. New knowledge will be generated in the history of science, archaeology and gender studies. Anticipated outcomes include (i) a more inclusive history that provides diverse role models of women in science from our region, (ii) the identification of socio-cultural patterns limiting women's careers and successful strategies historically developed to overcome these. $399,551
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects Type-II superlattice (T2SL) based semiconductors have emerged as a rival to well-established HgCdTe-based IR detectors, promising comparable performance at significantly lower cost. T2SLs are complex nanostructures that exhibit multiple-carrier and highly-anisotropic electronic transport properties, which renders them exceedingly challenging to study experimentally. The lack of reliable experimental data has limited optimisation and modelling efforts, and thus hampered progress. This project aims to systematically study electronic transport in T2SLs, both experimentally and theoretically, by employing world-leading mobility spectrum techniques developed at UWA and state-of-the art T2SL structures from three world leaders in T2SLs. $502,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects Benefits from environmental policies are often unpriced “non-market values” (NMVs). Environmental agencies struggle to know how best to measure these relatively intangible benefits, but doing so is important to ensure value for money from public investments. Environmental economists have developed and applied a wide range of methods for estimating NMVs. The methods vary in their comprehensiveness, accuracy and cost. Yet no rigorous tool is available to assess (a) which NMV method is best to implement, accounting for its cost and its potential to improve decisions, or (b) whether any NMV method improves decisions enough to warrant its cost. In creating such a tool, this project will deliver a key breakthrough in environmental economics. $537,117
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects For decades astronomers have puzzled over the connection between the structure and evolution of galaxies and the role played by host environments. This project aims to resolve this problem by combining multi-wavelength observations, multi-component simulations, and pioneering data analysis using artificial intelligence. In particular, we target the nearby Fornax galaxy cluster as a laboratory for studying galaxy formation in dense environments. Using our novel machine learning techniques, we will elucidate the physical mechanisms that drive the rapid evolution of star formation, galactic nuclei, and gas and dust content within Fornax. Our predictions will benefit ongoing and future surveys at the national and international level. $510,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects Fungi produce an array of molecules called secondary metabolites (SMs) that impact on everyday life (e.g. penicillin). This project aims to investigate a new class of fungal peptide SMs called RiPPs which are structurally unique from existing molecules and offer the exciting prospect of harbouring new and novel biological activities. This project expects to discover the mechanisms of RiPP synthesis and their biological roles in plant pathogenic fungi, and uncover and engineer novel RiPPs with desired bioactivities. The expected outcome from this project will be a seminal advance in fungal SM biology which should provide significant benefits through the generation of exciting new lead molecules for the agricultural and medical industries. $569,499
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to explain how human operators make decisions in complex work environments that require multiple tasks to be completed under time pressure. This project expects to achieve a significant theoretical and practical advance by developing and testing a computational model of the psychological processes that allow operators to adapt to the types of workplace task demands that can increase human error and the risk of accidents. The expected outcome is a model that can explain operator decision-making and predict the conditions where operators are more likely to make delayed responses or errors. This should provide significant benefits by informing psychological theory and potentially reducing workplace incidents and accidents. $269,588
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to develop molecular rectifiers incorporating organometallic complexes for future electronics applications. The organometallic molecules will be an integral part of the electronic device to ameliorate the technological problems arising from miniaturisation of semiconductors. Expected outcomes are a new approach to molecular designs that provide a rectifying response in single molecules and large area molecular junctions. This should build manufacturing capacity in Australia and enhance international collaboration and reputation by addressing significant challenges in molecular electronics. Benefits arising include skilled researchers, internationalisation of Australian research and contributions to fundamental science. $440,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects As many more plant genomes are sequenced, the bottleneck is being able to interrogate and translate this data into applications for crop improvement. This project will develop and apply a population graph database, hosting genome data for the world's major crops and their wild relatives, allowing the characterisation of gene diversity on an unparalleled scale. Analysis of this data will reveal the presence/absence and sequence diversity for classes of genes for important agronomic traits including disease resistance, flowering time and legume nitrogen fixation which will enable plant breeders to identify and apply novel genes and allelic variants for use in breeding programmes, accelerating the production of improved crop varieties. $355,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to bring Australia into the global history of slavery by exploring the legacies of British slavery in Western Australia. Through developing innovative methods for biographical research and digital mapping, it will trace the movement of capital, people and culture from slave-owning Britain to WA, and produce a new history of the continuing impact of slavery wealth in shaping colonial immigration, investment, and law. Expected outcomes of this project include enhanced capacity to build international disciplinary collaborations, new research methods, and a major national online exhibition. Benefits include a radically new perspective on Australian history and abolition in the present, with major public outcomes. $660,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Early Career Researcher Award This project will overcome a fundamental issue at the heart of ocean engineering design, impacting our oil, gas and renewables industries. Ocean waves are random, yet the best design tools for wave'structure interaction (model testing and computational fluid dynamics) require short, precisely-defined wave sequences. This project will establish a paradigm shift, bridging this gap via a new unified Design Wave methodology developed for a diverse set of offshore systems, each with different criticalities. The new methodology will fuse advanced techniques in fluid mechanics, statistics and applied maths. The outcomes will create reductions in uncertainty and improvements in design and safety for facilities such as wind farms and gas platforms. $422,998
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects The project aims to make deep water oil and gas developments safer and cheaper by understanding better the unique seabed ‘crust' conditions that occur in Australian waters. By studying the biogenic, structural and mechanical properties of deepwater crusts in more detail than can be done in ‘live' oil and gas projects, this project expects to make a step change in the understanding of these seabed crusts. Expected outcomes of this project include developing new seabed investigation and design approaches for these soils. This should provide significant benefits, by facilitating the design and installation of low-risk, yet low cost seabed infrastructure (e.g. pipelines, risers, shallow foundations etc.) in these problematical seabed types $400,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to address uncertainties in the design of vibro-driven piles. This promising alternative to impact-driven piles offers faster installation and requires no noise mitigation. The project expects to generate new knowledge of the effect of the installation process in sand on in'service pile response by integrating findings from innovative experiments and numerical modelling. This is particularly important for highly sensitive structures such as offshore wind turbines, which provide a rapidly increasing share of global energy supply. Expected outcomes include practical recommendations for vibro-piles in sand. This should provide sizeable benefits by unlocking vibro-piles as a viable method to reduce offshore wind farm costs. $300,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects Many plants and animals can alter their genetic information via RNA (ribonucleic acid) editing, a process that is often essential for the growth and development of the organism. This ability provides accurate control over gene expression and has great potential as a biotechnological tool in agriculture and medicine. RNA editing could be used to switch genes on or off in biotechnological production systems with an unprecedented degree of precision, or to correct genetic diseases. This project aims to understand two RNA editing pathways in plants, one of which is found nowhere else and likely to involve a novel enzymatic mechanism. We will use the understanding gained to develop novel RNA processing tools usable in any living organism. $610,871
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims at advancing knowledge in flow/structure interactions and developing improved methodology for predicting wave and current loading on marine structures, which are vital in many practical applications such as extraction of oil and gas resources and renewable energy from the ocean. The improved methodology and much-needed database of hydrodynamic force coefficients developed through this project for estimating hydrodynamic loading on marine structures will significantly reduce the high, costly uncertainly levels that are being experienced in the design, construction and maintenance of marine structures (and facilities) and increase the competiveness of Australian relevant industries. $420,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to make significant advances in understanding finite primitive permutation groups, which are the basic building blocks of the mathematical study of symmetry. A recently-developed perspective, inspired by the notion of a synchronising automaton, has revealed that these groups fall into a natural hierarchy. While the outline of this synchronisation hierarchy is known, many questions remain about exactly which primitive groups lie in which layers. Answering these questions using techniques from group theory, graph theory and finite geometry will substantially deepen our understanding. The benefits of this include new knowledge and enhanced insight into this fundamental class of groups and new tools for their analysis. $400,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to develop novel methods to formulate conformal field theories with extended symmetry that are important in variety of applications ranging from pure mathematics to phenomenology of elementary particles. The project expects to advance our knowledge in the most challenging areas of modern theoretical physics - Quantum Gravity and physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. Its expected outcomes will include conceptual results of major significance for modern theoretical and mathematical physics, thus placing Australia at the forefront of this research. A rich intellectual environment will be provided for training Australian PhD students by internationally recognised experts. $435,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects Plant growth, productivity and seed yield all depend on organelle function which requires metabolites and proteinsto be transported across membranes. This mechanism of transport is carried out by specific transporters that havethe ability to transport macromolecules, and regulate organelle function. We have identified new transporters thatare involved in amino acid and protein transport in the mitochondria, chloroplast and peroxisomes. We will assignfunction to each protein and investigate the importance in regulating organelle biogenesis. This will allow us tomodulate plant energy production for optimal growth and to withstand abiotic stress, all of which haveagriculturally beneficial consequences. $387,372
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to develop a new framework to accurately predict how a diverse range of coastal ecosystems (seagrasses, corals, mangroves) act to reduce coastal flooding. The project aspires to develop novel theory and models to quantify how the large, complex roughness of these ecosystems interacts with coastal flows to attenuate extreme water levels at coastlines. Expected outcomes include new predictive models and guidelines that can be immediately incorporated into coastal hazard forecasts and engineering practice. This will allow greatly-improved predictions of how coastal ecosystems support the safety and resilience of coastal communities worldwide, and new design guidelines to boost nature-based coastal defence projects. $564,507
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to determine the link between high phosphorus use efficiency and nitrogen metabolism in the Fabaceae, Myrtaceae and Proteaceace, the three families of plants that co-dominate the flora on the extremely phosphorus-impoverished soils of south-western Australia, a Global Biodiversity Hotspot. It is expected that the extremely high phosphorus use efficiency in these plants is inextricably linked to a low capacity for nitrogen uptake. An anticipated outcome is new insight into how these plants achieve highly efficient phosphorus and nitrogen use, providing new understanding into the functioning of plants in an exceptionally biodiverse ecosystem and into traits that may lead to to crops with higher fertilizer use efficiency. $634,000
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to unravel where and when marine heatwaves drive loss of genetic diversity and rapid directional selection in kelp forests. Although the devastating ecological impacts of marine heatwaves are well studied, empirical understanding of how marine heatwaves impact underlying evolutionary processes including adaptive capacity and resilience is lacking. This research will use a powerful combination of innovative heatwave analyses, cutting-edge genomics and physiological experiments to fill these knowledge gaps and represents a step change in our understanding of how kelp respond and adapt in multi'stressor seascapes. Results will pave the way for development of novel mitigation strategies to future-proof marine management. $526,573
ARC Discovery Discovery Projects This project aims to investigate the ways that visual images have defined, contested and advanced ideas of Australian citizenship and rights from European settlement to the present. Responding to the lack of a shared mainstream understanding of Australian citizenship, it looks beyond legal definitions to explore cultural and especially visual views of citizenship over time. Through collaboration with museum, media and education sectors, it will provide a forward-looking and accessible public history, and utilise the potential of images to broaden contemporary debates about citizenship. Expected outcomes include a better public understanding of the pathways to citizenship, and enhanced engagement with Australian values and identity. $501,000
Health and Medical Research Clinical Trials and Cohort Studies There is an urgent need for better long-acting penicillin preparations to prevent rheumatic heart disease. Using an established human infection challenge model, we will unravel the complex relationship between bug (streptococcus), drug (penicillin) and the patient to determine the lowest penicillin concentration that can prevent sore throats and rheumatic fever. This fundamental knowledge will inform the next generation of less painful, less frequent and more effective penicillin implants. $1,837,196
Health and Medical Research Targeted Research Breastfeeding has been recognised globally as an exceptional and natural protective factor for infants and their mothers. We know from studies conducted over a decade ago that the rate of breastfeeding for Aboriginal babies in the Perth area is high at discharge but drops substantially in the six months following. This study aims to achieve improved initiation and maintenance rates of breastfeeding for Aboriginal babies within the Perth metropolitan area. $1,345,275
Health and Medical Research Ideas The majority of deaths caused by breast cancer are associated with cancer spread; in these patients the immune system fails to recognise and/or kill tumour cells. While many breast cancers elicit a poor immune response, others show some immune targeting but they don't respond to current immune therapies. This project will develop novel, targeted strategies to awaken immune-responsivity in aggressive breast cancer, helping the immune system to attack the tumour and to respond to immune therapies. $1,438,755
Health and Medical Research Ideas Inherited retinal disease (IRD) is the most common form of blindness in working age adults and children and is caused by errors in the DNA code for genes that are crucial to the healthy retina. We propose a novel method for accelerating discovery of mutations in IRD patients and testing of a new type of genetic drug for the treatment of IRD-causing mutations. To screen these drugs, we will generate retinal cells from patient skin cultures using a method known as cellular reprogramming. $1,150,100
Health and Medical Research Ideas One of the most common dental procedures, and a large financial burden to patients, is replacing dental fillings. Fillings commonly suffer from failure at the interface of the tooth and filling material leading to recurrent caries, hypersensitivity, and pulp inflammation. This project aims to investigate the potential of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) as a novel approach that could improve performance and longevity of dental restorations. $319,351
Health and Medical Research Ideas Innate defence regulators are artificial versions of the miniature proteins produced by many animals and plants that can fight infections and control the body's inflammatory responses. Infection and inflammation during early life cause many of the poor outcomes experienced by preterm babies. We will study whether one of these promising regulator proteins can prevent the serious infections and intestinal disease by helping the preterm infant to maintain a healthy gut. $1,279,714
Health and Medical Research Ideas Increased thickness of muscle lining the airway passages is a primary abnormality in patients with asthma. Only one technology has been designed to address this defect; ‘bronchial thermoplasty' (BT). However, there is controversy on how BT can improve patient health and for this reason there is reluctance for widespread use. Our research program will determine how BT works and which patients are likely to benefit most, improving current clinical practice and informing a new treatment approach. $1,060,200
Health and Medical Research Ideas Kidney transplants from parents are the most common treatment for paediatric patients with kidney failure. Recent evidence suggests that kidneys from mothers were more likely to fail compared to kidneys from fathers. The reason is unknown but may reflect patient's differential immune response to the incompatible genes of mother and father. This project will address this important question and our findings will help to inform the selection of the most suitable parent for transplantation. $1,833,664
Health and Medical Research Ideas Children with developmental disabilities require life-long support. Their siblings face significant challenges in their own lives but little is known about the size of the problem. This project aims to investigate positive and negative consequences for siblings, and how to help them. We predict that sibling experiences will depend on their own personal qualities and family situations. We will describe sibling circumstances and needs, and propose new models of funding and support for them. $1,023,783
Health and Medical Research Ideas Very young children are being increasingly exposed to mobile technology, with families having little understanding of the potential impacts on their child's physical, social, emotional, communication and cognitive development. This study uses innovative methods such as speech recognition technology to provide the first longitudinal evidence investigating the relationship between exposure to screens and mobile technology on different aspects of child development during the first five years. $602,565
Health and Medical Research Synergy Grants Cystic fibrosis related progressive lung disease characterised by inflammation and infection commences soon after birth. Candidate triggers are emerging from work undertaken by the chief investigators. The grant will facilitate a comprehensive assessment of these candidates and the host responses as biomarkers of disease progression and targets for intervention in order to prevent lung disease. $5,000,000
International Education Support Destination Australia Program Destination Australia will support both Australian and international students to study in Regional Australia $660,000
National Blood Agreement Management National Blood Sector Research and Development Program This research project aims to: (a) assess feasibility of a research protocol prior to a multi-centre, randomised controlled trial of intravenous (IV) iron in patients with non-anaemic iron deficiency undergoing major surgery with an anticipated blood loss of greater than 500mL; and (b) determine feasibility and tolerability, and inform sample size calculation. Specifically, the pilot will assess compliance with the testing regimen, tolerability of the Six-Minute Walk Test (6MWT) and near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) in this patient cohort, the proposed schedule of blood tests and follow up protocols $34,801
