Western Australia’s innovation, entrepreneurship and research expertise was celebrated last night at The University of Western Australia’s inaugural IQ Awards, held at Crawley's historic Masonic Hall. The event saw three very different projects awarded for their impact and ingenuity.
A device being developed by researchers from The University of Western Australia will improve dental procedures, significantly reduce the time they take and potentially lower dental treatment costs through new virtual (augmented) reality technology.
An international team of scientists including 21 researchers from UWA has made a major breakthrough: a second detection of gravitational waves, following their world-first discovery of gravitational waves last September.
Students in WA can choose from three ATAR maths subjects ranging in difficulty from Mathematics Applications (easiest), to Mathematics Methods (intermediate) and Mathematics Specialist (highest level).
New miniature sensor technology capable of analysing anything from crop quality to the freshness of fruit and vegetables in the supermarket could soon be made available to consumers after a licencing deal between The University of Western Australia and private firm Panorama Synergy (ASX:PSY).
A project led by Dr Mark Waters from UWA to find new ways to improve crop productivity and one by UWA’s Professor Alistair Paterson to help preserve the heritage of the state’s north-west are winners in the latest round of funding grants from the Australian Research Council (ARC).
A study which may lead to sleep apnoea being diagnosed through a simple photograph is one of three National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) grants worth nearly $3 million awarded to The University of Western Australia.
Find out how sleep disorders are related to the shape of your face, whether plant biology and advances in genomics could alleviate the growing global food crisis, and what our homes and communities will look like when living to over 100 is the norm.
Scientists at The University of Western Australia say there is a consistency between the current search area at Reunion Island and where debris from missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 could have drifted to, based on their research.
The UWA Renewable Energy Vehicle (REV) Project is launching Australia's first commercial, combined charging standard, fast-charging station which has been installed by the REV Project at The University of Western Australia's campus, near the University Club.
Australia's first online national bushfire spread simulation program, ‘Aurora', was announced the winner of the 2014 ‘Revitalising the Regions' Category at the prestigious Western Australian Premier's Awards for Excellence last night.
With electric vehicles soaring in popularity worldwide and 23 renewable energy vehicle (REV) charging stations around WA, a new program is a win-win for green transport, and for the student who developed it.
With less than five weeks to go until the London Olympic Games, researchers at The University of Western Australia have been analysing Australian swimmers' movement patterns in a bid to give them an edge over their international opponents.
A new mobile phone app aims to encourage West Australians to stay mentally healthy by providing information and guidance on how to ward off mental illness and get more out of life by staying physically, mentally and socially active.
