PurposeThis project aims to investigate whether ocean surface temperatures can increase beyond the 35 degree centigrade threshold for the survival of humans and many other mammal species. Climate models predict that ocean surface temperatures will exceed 35 degree centigrade in parts of the middle east and throughout much of South East Asia in as little as 50 years. This project will use a series of laboratory experiments to test whether parts of the ocean surface can be warmed beyond this limit under natural conditions. Expected outcomes of this project are a new understanding of what sets the maximum surface temperature of the ocean, thereby allowing us to determine whether coastal regions of the humid tropics and sub-tropics will remain habitable for humans and other mammal species in the near future.

PurposeThis project aims to determine the electrical properties of dendrites in human neurons. Dendrites are the primary site of synaptic input to neurons and their electrical properties play a key role in information processing in the brain. While we know much about the electrical properties of dendrites in other species, primarily rodents, little is known about the electrical properties of human dendrites. This project aims to address this gap in knowledge for the first time. The results obtained will shed light on the mechanisms the brain uses to process information, and therefore will bring us a step closer to truly understanding ourselves.

Materials based on metals (M) separated by a single oxygen atom (O) underpin all manner of technologies from the pigments of antiquity to modern electronics. Electronic/magnetic communication across MOM bridges is thus extremely well understood. Materials with two metals bridged by one carbon atom (MCM) are in contrast, rare and poorly understood. Developing synthetic routes to such materials will make it possible to map the diversity of chemical and electronic features against theoretical models in search of new materials with unique reactivities and properties for commercial exploitation.

PurposeThis project aims to advance our understanding of liberal culture, a concept central to the humanities and to modern social and political discourse. It will address the problem of liberalism's perceived rationalism by investigating the role of emotion as a core characteristic of liberal culture during its formation and subsequent development over the course of the long nineteenth century. The project will focus on periodicals as a vital medium for the cultivation and dissemination of progressive liberal ideas and values, as well as for the expression and discussion of the emotions. The project will benefit scholars in political, literary, and cultural studies and contribute to current debates in Australia about liberal culture and its sustainability.

PurposeThis project aims to create a degenerate Fermi gas of metastable helium atoms to study some basic properties of elementary quantum systems. The unique properties of helium provide access to observe many-body correlation functions. Expected outcomes are a new demonstration of the Pauli exclusion principle, where no two Fermions can be in the same location, and revealing the fundamental correlations that underlie many-body quantum systems. Correlations between Fermions underpin many effects in physics, such as high temperature superconductivity and quantum magnetism. This knowledge will have an influence on the development of new quantum technologies, such as quantum computers.

PurposeThis project aims to determine the underlying cause of recent earthquake activity in central Australia. Of all the stable continents, Australia is surprisingly seismically active, with intra-plate earthquakes occurring relatively frequently. However, these are unpredictable, placing lives and infrastructure at risk. This project offers the opportunity to use a new seismic experiment to improve detection of small events that may warn of a more dangerous earthquake to come, and provide sub'surface imaging of the hidden crustal boundaries and faults that are ultimately responsible. Benefits will include improved hazard assessment, and a new predictive model for exploration that relates regional seismicity, crustal faults, and mineral systems.

PurposeThis project aims to provide a systematic and empirically-informed account of the way networks facilitate or hinder knowledge. Distinguishing on-line information from disinformation can be difficult. This task can be greatly assisted by networks of trusted peers, but figuring out who to trust is itself a challenge. Identifying, designing, and facilitating networks of trust is therefore an urgent task. By using the tools of social epistemology, virtue epistemology, and network science, this project will identify how individuals should distribute their trust when embedded in epistemically hostile environments.

PurposeThis project aims to complete the SABRE South dark matter detector with the most radio-pure sodium-iodide crystals installed in the Stawell Underground Physics Laboratory. Existing evidence for dark matter is indirect, but the southern hemisphere location and operation, in conjunction with a similar detector in Italy, provides crucial advantages for resolving a dark matter signal from seasonal backgrounds. The expected outcome is to search for dark matter from 2019-2022 and, in doing so, resolve whether one of the most persistent and enigmatic signals for dark matter is real. The benefits will include scientific understanding of the universe, Australian leadership in big science, and significant technological advances. The discovery of dark matter would have an immense impact, similar to that involving the detection of the Higgs boson and gravitational waves.

PurposeThis project aims to build on recent advances in statistical inference to develop a new quantitative framework for palaeomagnetism. Palaeomagnetic analysis of Earth's ancient magnetic field helps us to derive plate tectonic reconstructions and to use geomagnetic reversals to date rock sequences. These applications depend on statistical methods that are either flawed or that lack sufficient diagnostic power to be useful for addressing increasingly complex questions. Expected outcomes are an urgently needed new generation of palaeomagnetic statistical analysis methods. The project will provide quantitative tools that will benefit all palaeomagnetic applications across Earth Science and have widespread benefit and impact in academic and industrial research.

PurposeThis project aims to understand the initial steps of RNA biogenesis and how this process is linked to the chromatin environment. Although less than five per cent of our genome encodes proteins, almost the entire genome is transcribed to RNA. A large portion of these transcripts are degraded during the early steps of RNA biogenesis by the RNA surveillance machinery, but the mechanism for the recognition and degradation of these transcripts is not understood. New evidence suggests that the chromatin environment of the transcribed locus plays an important role in this process. This project will lead to significant benefits in the implementation of emerging RNA-based technologies and in understanding how genome stability is maintained.

PurposeThis project aims to solve the enduring question about galaxy formation of why galaxies are so inefficient at turning gas into stars. This project will investigate two possible agents for this inefficiency, the pressures exerted by starlight photons and the relativistic cosmic rays produced by supernovae, using a combination of numerical simulations, basic physical analysis, and comparison to observations. The expected outcome will be a greatly improved understanding of the physics of the interaction of radiation and cosmic rays with star-forming interstellar gas. This will help complete the picture of how galaxies like our own came to be, and will provide tools for both future simulations and the interpretation of observations.

PurposeThis project aims to investigate the growth and demonstration of compound semiconductor microring lasers on silicon substrates, using selective area growth to engineer the shape of the lasing cavity at the nano/micro'scale. Silicon photonics is currently a dominant technology in optical and data communication systems, and the continued development demands higher speeds, lower power consumption and lower costs. However, on-chip integrated, high efficiency lasers are still elusive due to mismatch in material platforms between the lasers and silicon substrates. This project will produce reliable, efficient and easily manufacturable laser sources integrated on silicon photonic chips. It is also expected to pave the way for more development of this technology by the industry to further drive the cost of silicon photonics technology down whilst increasing data transmission speed.

PurposeThis project aims to investigate how China uses infrastructure-driven development to wield international influence, by studying how Chinese ideas of -developmentalism- interact with nation building and regime security imperatives in Indonesia, Myanmar and Laos. The project expects to generate new comparative knowledge about development logics and competing sectoral interests around major infrastructure projects that breaks new conceptual ground on analysing international influence and the economic'security nexus in Asia. Enhanced understanding of the conditions under which China's development model is attractive to others, would benefit Australian and international agencies seeking strategic diplomatic and investment decisions in the Asia-Pacific.

PurposeThis project aims to improve our understanding of the damage processes in Positron Emission Tomography (PET). PET is a widely used medical imaging technique, but there are gaps in our understanding of the underlying interactions, in particular in the case of the radiation damage induced during the process. By using new models incorporating accurate descriptions of interactions processes, verified by experimental measurement, this project will develop a new model of positron transport in PET. The project will allow validation of predictions from the model by undertaking experiments in liquid water.

PurposeAll our current vaccines are based on the development of protective antibody responses. However existing malaria vaccines (and vaccine candidates) are only able to induce very transient antibody responses. In this project we test the idea that this is because existing vaccines stimulate a burst of antibody producing cells, but fail to induce the immunological memory required for sustained effectiveness. We will then examine ways we can induce better long-term protection.

PurposeIt is estimated that greater than 90 percent of human genes undergo alternative RNA splicing, which can explain how protein diversity is achieved with a limited number of genes. However, how alternative splicing patterns are established remains poorly understood but is an important question given that 15-50 percent of human disease mutations are associated with changes to the splicing patterns of RNA. We have uncovered a new splicing mechanism, which involves changing the way DNA is packaged in a cell.

PurposeTreatment strategies for patients with invasive brain tumours are based on a WHO tumour grading system. This system does not account for differences within tumour types, although these can significantly affect treatment outcomes. This project aims to investigate new drug therapies for specific brain tumour types, and to identify new prognostic markers for these tumours. These studies will lead to more individualised treatments, which is critical to improving patient survival and quality of life.

PurposeThe actin cytoskeleton forms the structure that not only keeps cells in their normal shape but is also essential for the movement of cells and for interaction between cells. We have recently identified the first patients with an immunodeficiency caused by a defect in a gene called ARPC1B, which plays a crucial role in the regulation of actin. Through the investigation of novel mouse models we will elucidate the pathomechanism underlying the disease of these patients.

PurposeAntarctic sea ice controls climate change and variability in the Southern Hemisphere, and also limits shipping in the Antarctic region, posing a safety risk to operations. The development of the capacity to predict Southern Ocean sea ice on weekly, seasonal and longer timescales is therefore a high priority in Antarctic research. We will conduct the most comprehensive assessment to date of the performance and accuracy of Australia's global ocean-sea ice model in the Antarctic region. This project will enhance understanding of sea ice and ocean processes in the Southern Ocean and optimise the performance of these processes in models, to minimise model bias. It will thereby underpin the development of future sea ice forecasting capability and enhance future projections from Australia's climate model.

PurposeA fundamental question in biology is how new species are generated. The role of abiotic factors has been widely explored, but there is still little known about the role that ecological or behavioural interactions between organisms, such as parasitism or predation, play in the generation of diversity. This project aims to test the importance of anti-predator defences (warning colours) in generating species. It will combine micro- and macroevolutionary analyses to provide an in-depth test of this association. This project aims to provide a bridge between behavioural ecology and macroevolutionary processes, using Australian fauna, and increase our knowledge about whether and how enemies can contribute to generating diversity of life on earth.
