What you need to know about nitrogen pollution
A new measurement from University of Melbourne researchers could more accurately identify places at risk of damaging levels of nitrogen pollution.
Turning Science into business
Dr Lynn Johnson Langer recently launched the Master of Biomedical Science, Enterprise Specialisation at the University of Melbourne.
From gravitational waves to mobile phones: 50 years of physics
To celebrate 50 years of the July Lectures in Physics at the University of Melbourne, we look back at four physics discoveries that have changed our world.
Bringing back the northern white rhino from ‘extinction’
Researchers from Europe, Japan and the University of Melbourne could save a species - using eggs from southern white rhinos and sperm from northern white rhinos
All the forests in the world from a single layer of cells
University of Melbourne researchers have discovered how wood-making cells inside trees work, settling a century-old debate about how plants make bark and wood
Quantum leap in computer simulation
University of Melbourne physicists have successfully simulated a quantum computer faster than any real prototype in a key step to help us become quantum-ready.
Fighting back against the Australian blowfly
University of Melbourne scientists have collected blowflies from farms across Australia as part of efforts to develop a vaccine to protect sheep from flystrike.
Crowdsourcing security intelligence
Inspired by how bees make collective decisions, University of Melbourne researchers are exploring how crowdsourcing techniques may help intelligence analysis
Finding the building blocks of wood
An international team, including University of Melbourne scientists, is looking inside trees to learn exactly how wood is formed at the cellular level.
Speeding natural selection in the name of conservation
University of Melbourne scientists are using breeding to genetically adapt quolls to resist toxic cane toads – if it works it may help other endangered species
