Ten outstanding researchers with expertise across a range of disciplines were awarded fellowships in 2018.
This project aims to develop biophysical pathways for Indonesian cities to transition including flood mitigation strategies through infrastructure adaptation modelling, and urban designs scenarios at metro and local scales that integrate selected green infrastructures.
This project will involve studying the process of incorporating indigenous perspectives on health into the medical curricula in Australia and the key lessons learned from such process
This project provided an understanding of the recent mangrove die-off in northern Australia and the resilience of mangrove ecosystems to extreme climate event using remote sensing data.
The project determined variation in salinity tolerance and protein levels in mungbean germplasm. The project also developed a protocol for quick screening plant materials for salinity tolerance through in-vitro culture.
This research will build on the collection of Streptococcus isolates from Mekong farms at RIA2, sequence their genomes and analyse their microevolution in order to determine most prevalent types and identify potential conserved vaccine targets.
