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.
An international collaboration of scientists, including a team from The University of Western Australia, has upgraded United States gravitational wave detectors to bring the instruments to sensitivities that are expected to directly detect and measure gravitational waves for the first time.
Last Wednesday, the School of Earth and Environment and Geoscience Foundation welcomed guests to a sundowner at the Edward de Courcy Clarke Earth Science Museum to acknowledge the generous donation of 12 state-of-the-art microscopes, used in teaching and by research staff and students.
Internationally renowned soil scientist Professor David Hopkins will deliver the 2015 Hector and Andrew Stewart Memorial Lecture, hosted by The University of Western Australia's Institute of Agriculture, next month.
Twenty students representing seven countries and nine universities are at The University of Western Australia for a summer school where they are sharing their global perspectives on responses to climate change.
Researchers from The University of Western Australia have identified ways for farmers in medium-to-high rainfall areas of the WA grain belt to increase wheat yield. Their breakthrough may have implications for other important grain crops in WA, such as barley and canola.
The University of Western Australia's strength in science was recognised last night when its staff won two major categories in the 2014 Premier's Science Awards and a former UWA Vice-Chancellor was inducted into the Western Australian Science Hall of Fame.
Four researchers from The University of Western Australia will receive more than $3 million from the Australian Research Council Future Fellowship scheme to fund a diverse range of projects - from the origin of life on Earth and a history of Soviet war experiences to the future of crops in a phosphorus-scarce world, and 3D optical microscopy expected to facilitate unprecedented insights into the structure of tissue.
A collaborative research team has discovered an important link between the eruption of Earth's hottest lavas, the location of some of the largest ore deposits and the emergence of the first land masses on the planet - the continents - more than 2500 million years ago.
An international research team has generated the first comprehensive map of geology beneath the East Antarctic Ice Sheet that will help to understand long-term changes in the largest ice sheet on the planet.
A new study published in the international journal Nature Communications has revealed how Western Australia's coral reefs have been affected by changing ocean currents, rising sea surface temperatures and sea level variability.
An engineering researcher from The University of Western Australia has won an Australian Government science and innovation award for young people in agriculture to develop an intelligent sensor which will help detect water stress in grapevines in real time.
