PurposeUnder the Australian China Science and Research Fund, through the Joint Research Centre, Australian and Chinese researchers will work together to develop cheap, accessible devices that will transform the future of health - for both healthy individuals and those with chronic illness. These new devices, to be released to the market by commercial partners, will measure vital health indicators from saliva, urine, blood and sweat in a simple attachment connected to a smartphone. Ultimately, the outcomes have the potential for economic impact through the wide sale of devices and consumables. However, the health impact is even more exciting, as this digital information can be used to identify early health concerns (for individuals and populations), reduce visits to health professionals and empower healthy choices.

PurposeThis project aims to investigate how people represent and use information about unpredictability in their environment. Seeing too much predictability is problematic, but seeing too little can also be a problem, for example inappropriate "learned helplessness" can occur, whereby people feel disempowered because the world is seen as random. Recent findings demonstrated a bias in fundamental learning that may maintain these inappropriate beliefs about unpredictability. This bias is not anticipated by formal theories of learning. The project will investigate how this bias is brought about by first formalising a novel theory of fundamental learning and then systematically testing its assumptions.

PurposeThis project aims to develop new understandings of the effects of land rights on Aboriginal communities and the nation. The era of gaining rights has, for many, transitioned into a time of restitution and seeking economic and cultural futures for younger generations. It remains to be seen what these futures will be, how they will align with or challenge national interests, and what hopes younger Aboriginal people have for country. This project aims to uncover future aspirations, engaging with Yanyuwa claimants, the first group to lodge a land claim under the Aboriginal Land Rights (NT) Act 1976, and land rights professionals. The project aims to reveal intercultural understandings of land rights and the future for Australian lands and waters.

PurposeThis project aims to deepen knowledge of gastrointestinal physiology, and reveal the mechanisms by which the major gastrointestinal signalling molecule, serotonin, regulates gut peristalsis. Almost all of the serotonin in our body is made in the gastrointestinal tract where it controls many functions, including how our gut wall contracts during peristalsis. Proper control of gut peristalsis and the transit of material through our bowel is important for our health. This project expects to define how serotonin controls peristalsis, where in the bowel this serotonin comes from, how serotonin communicates with the nervous system in our gastrointestinal tract, and how the cells that synthesise gut serotonin respond to contraction to trigger the secretion of serotonin.

PurposeThis project aims to pinpoint the nature and timing of key steps in macropod history and to test how these link with major climatic and biotic changes. Macropods (kangaroos and relatives) are widely considered the marsupial equivalents to hoofed mammals on other continents, but we have a weaker understanding of how their evolution was shaped by environmental change. This project will combine palaeontology, anatomy and genetics to address questions such as how and why ancestral macropods descended from the trees and evolved bipedal hopping, and the upper size limits of the kangaroo -body plan-. This should improve our understanding of the long-term effects of climate change on marsupials, and provide a test of key placental-based evolutionary models.

PurposeThis project aims to identify the origins and movements of Australian archaeological ochre through the development of a novel tool combining genomic and chemical analysis. The geographic distribution of Australian ochre is closely linked to Aboriginal creation stories, while its physical distribution by people is evidence of cultural cooperation. Using this new archaeomicrobiological technique, the project aims to answer significant questions about past human behaviour, in terms of trade, cultural interactions, territoriality and colonisation. The method also has the potential to benefit traditional owners by contributing to repatriation projects. The collaborative detailed recording, sampling and analysis of ochre sources on traditional lands will also assist Aboriginal communities to manage this important aspect of their cultural heritage.

PurposeOne of the most common health care concerns in the community is chronic constipation. Drugs have limited benefit, because they act on many other organs causing a number of side effects. We present a new technology, called wireless optogenetics, whereby light, instead of drugs is used to stimulate the gastrointestinal tract without affecting any other organs. We present the first evidence that wireless optogenetics can stimulate the gut leading to increased transit of content in live mammals.

PurposeFaecal incontinence is embarrassing and can ruin a patient's quality of life. While the anal sphincters play an important role in controlling defaecation, patients can have normal sphincter function and still suffer severe incontinence. In this project we will use our unique recording techniques to identify an abnormal region of contractility in the distal colon of these patients and show that this contributes to the incontinence. These data will provide a new targeted region for treatment.

PurposeParasites have been proposed to be drivers of population divergence, and ultimately speciation, yet the dynamics of this process are not well understood. This project will utilise new genomic techniques, novel hybrid zone analyses, and data on mate choice, to investigate the hypothesis that parasites drive population divergence through an interaction with immune response genes in the sleepy lizard Tiliqua rugosa. This species provides an unprecedented system, backed by 37 years of long term host-parasite and behavioural data, and recent genetic analyses. This project intends to produce significant data to allow an examination of the early stages of host-parasite evolution in action, providing novel insights into the speciation process.

PurposeThis project aims to generate unprecedented insights into the fangs of venomous snakes, focusing on elapids (taipans, tiger snakes etc). We will examine fang shape diversity, correlation with behavior and ecology, evolutionary history, and biomechanical properties. Data will be collected using cutting-edge micro-CT technology and analysed using 3D geometric morphometrics, computer simulations, and advanced phylogenetic techniques. This should greatly improve understanding of the evolution of venom fangs in all snakes. Other benefits include a large 3D reference database allowing identification of fossil fangs, with applications for studies of past climates, and a characterisation of fang biomechanics, relevant to biodesign and biomimicry.

PurposeThere is evidence of growing political apathy in many countries. Yet, political disengagement is a serious problem for processes of democracy and the adaptiveness of society. This project draws on recent theorising within the psychological sciences to investigate the role of prospection - the creative imagining of ideal worlds ('utopian thinking') - as a key driver of political engagement. The project will test whether and how utopian thinking stimulates a questioning of the status quo, moral engagement, and the formation of new groups to address social change: outcomes critical for a society to adapt and advance. Educators, government and non-government organisations can draw on project findings to re-engage a disaffected populace.

PurposeThe project aims to develop the use of electric and magnetic fields to control chemical and biochemical reactions in high shear thin films under readily scalable continuous flow conditions to then be able to precisely build complex functional molecules. Depending on the orientation, strength and frequency of external electric and magnetic fields, and novel shear stress induced electric fields in solution, rates of reactions can be enhanced, with higher yields and tunable selectivity, and reduced waste and energy usage, which is not possible using traditional batch processing. This will be translated into molecular assembly line processing and the development of a new synthetic toolbox, with applications in preparing pharmaceuticals.

PurposeThe narrative of culture contact in Australia is dominated by British colonisation, yet Indigenous Australians in Northern Australia had a much earlier connection with global explorers and traders. We aim to conduct the first systematic maritime and terrestrial archaeological investigations of the Tiwi Islands, alongside the study of material culture, oral history and archival materials associated with early Dutch explorers, British colonists, and Macassans. This multi-disciplinary approach will broaden our understanding of long-term race relations in Australia, the past presence of foreign visitors to Northern Australia, develop cultural heritage public policy and consolidate Tiwi cultural identity and history into the historical record.

PurposeThis project aims to create new knowledge and digital tools for older people to be able to assess their home for access and safety, and arrange modifications enabling them to remain in their own home for as long as possible. Most older people wish to remain in their own home but often require home modifications in order to do so, which are traditionally prescribed by occupational therapists. The expected outcome of this project includes new digital tools which will enable optimal adaptation of the home environment. This should provide significant social benefits, such as increased safety, independence and support for older people to remain at home, and economic benefits from a reduced need for residential aged care or health services.

PurposeInterstitial cystitis is a severely debilitating bladder disorder with symptoms of urgency, frequency and pain. The mechanisms underlying these symptoms have not been determined but involve hyper-excitability of sensory nerves. This project will identify how hyper-excitability occurs in cystitis and the ion channels responsible. Our data will identify novel targets to treat visceral pain in patients with interstitial cystitis aimed at its root cause - sensory nerve endings of the bladder wall.

PurposePoorly timed mechanical ventilator breaths occur frequently in intensive care units, and may cause lung injury, prolonged hospital stay and contribute to death. However, current methods for detecting ventilator timing problems remain very primitive. This application seeks to translate a ground-breaking new breath monitoring approach into reduced ventilator timing problems. This has major potential to improve mechanical ventilation monitoring and outcomes for patients in intensive care.

PurposeThis project aims to augment the existing X-ray micro-computed tomography (CT) scanning capabilities in South Australia and Australia by introducing a large-volume micro-CT scanner. This will enable three-dimensional scanning of large and heavy samples including whole machine parts, limbs/segments, prosthesis devices, large animals and vertebrates, fossils and plant root systems. The project expects to allow experimental testing rigs to be placed inside the scanner to test samples, such as mechanical testing of femurs or medical devices, while scanning, to study the structure-function relationships. This will build unlimited computer simulations of mechanical tests, valuable for precious specimens. Benefits will include aiding in risk reduction, decision making on products and a higher quality workforce.

The project aims to scrutinise the creation of 'suspect communities' and the policies of surveillance, community control and restricted entry. The expected outcome is to show that such policies and practices did not prevent Britain and Australia from becoming multicultural societies by the 1970s. This will provide a greater understanding of how Britain and Australia's border control systems have evolved since 1900 and how past historical policies relate to contemporary practices.
