We all know that the only way we can
unlock the potential of our future is through research and innovation. Western
Australian is proudly a world leader in innovation and entrepreneurship and we
want to enhance that reputation by attracting the best and the brightest
students from around the world. One of the main projects that were involved in
is looking at the energy efficiency of plants. Try to understand these critical aspects for how we going to feed people in the future and how we gonna cope with climate
change. Beyond that there’s been opportunities have other collaborations
so one of those collaborations have been on honey bee research, understanding how we can secure the pollinators that we’re going to need for the future. I’m pretty
convinced that the kind of researchers that we have at UWA I can make a huge
difference in the future. We’ve already had people win Nobel Prizes from here and we’re gonna have people in the future many of the people who are here now who are going make a major impact because the passion for what they’re doing and the way
they connect together produce answers for the future. The research that I’ve been doing has been
specifically looking at the cervical cancer registry information and trying
to determine what’s the best frequency follow-up for women so that they’re not
inadvertently coming in possibly undergoing procedures that are
unnecessary so the variety of work that we do is practical it’s got direct benefit
to both individuals and the wider community and it influences policy
everybody is intimately known. Their research is valued and it’s actually
helping to make this university and much stronger teaching research facility. We’re looking at therapies for muscular
dystrophy in particular the most common and severe form of duchenne muscular dystrophy
we’ve been developing a genetic patch that reduces the severity and this patch is
now in clinical trials for over four years. We’ve got some fantastic
facilities here and resources we’re getting better at what we’re doing and we’re now applying it to many other conditions hopefully a lot faster. I study how black holes extract and recycle energy from in falling material understanding how those that material is ejected will
really help to better understanding of the universe so I study in with the
Curtin Institute of radio astronomy and there’s just a big group of
excellent researchers with their expertise and their help I was always able to learn so
much and they helped me through so much of my PhD Here at the ECU exercise medicine
research institute we are researching exercise as medicine for the treatment
of cancer what we have found is that exercise is a
very effective synergistic medicine to support other treatments of cancer such
as chemotherapy radiation therapy hormone therapy and even surgery when
students join a team they are immediately enveloped in this large network and
mentoring opportunities so they can really advance their skills and
knowledge in this exciting area of exercise medicine applied to cancer. If you have the vision for how your research could change the world then we want you to come and
share your passion and your innovation down here in Western Australia. To find out more visit our
