Research news

The award-winning photo was taken using a Kodak DCS Pro 14n, fitted with a 105mm f2.8 Micro Nikkor at f22, long exposure. A Nikon Speedlight SB-800 was used to backlight the setup

Suspending disbelief
This image of a drop of blood floating in thin air captured by a Monash photographer has earned international recognition.

In safe hands
The cars we drive, the roads we travel on, our attitudes to road safety. They have all been changed by the work of the Monash University Accident Research Centre, this year celebrating 20 years of success.

Storm warning
An 80-year-old principle discovered by Albert Einstein is being applied by Monash University scientists to develop an 'electronic canary', capable of detecting tiny grains of biohazardous materials.

Growing success
Monash University is set to become an international authority on regenerative medicine. Renowned researcher Nadia Rosenthal has been recruited to head up the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI), a $150 million joint venture with the Victorian Government.

Complex theory
Scientists are moving beyond the laboratory to create computer simulations using flocks of birds and the flu epidemic to show the relationship between humans, machines and animals.

Sharp focus
It is one of the most sensitive machines ever invented by mankind, capable of 'hearing' wind blowing in the trees and the passing of a train several kilometres away.

Virtual reactions
Monash scientists are uniting once disparate disciplines, designing complex computer simulations to fast-track work once confined to the laboratory.

Marching orders
Ant colonies might seem to have little in common with terrorist attacks and emergency evacuations of sports stadiums. But research underway at Monash University is showing how the behaviour of tiny Argentine ants might help humans engineer crowd control and traffic behaviour in panic situations.

Central intelligence
Monash University has united a team of security, police and diplomatic experts to help understand and combat one of our greatest social and economic threats.

Designing a solution
The Victorian College of Pharmacy, based at the University's Parkville campus is part of the team combating some of our greatest medical challenges.

Malaria momentum
New synthetic drugs being developed by scientists at the Victorian College of Pharmacy are on track to cure malaria with a single oral dose.
