These priorities will ensure that our research and innovation responds effectively to current and future local, 国家和全球挑战.




詹妮弗·哈德森教授, Australian 研究 Council Future Fellow and Centre for Emotional Health director, 和她的团队一起, 正在努力消除儿童焦虑症吗. Through international collaboration with more than 15 different institutions and anxiety clinics around the world, 她的团队正在创造量身定制的, individualised treatment for children and young people with anxiety disorders.

“如果我们能改善年轻人的情绪健康, then we can have an impact on individuals across their lifespan – improving their life satisfaction, 他们的幸福和情感健康,哈德逊说:“.

我们的 健康的人 future-shaping research priority focuses on the themes of pioneering health, integrated healthcare and lifelong learning for wellness in our ageing world.

Australian 研究 Council Future Fellow Professor Wendy Rogers is on a mission to make surgery safer for patients around the world. Her team developed the Macquarie Surgery Innovation Identification Tool (MSIIT) – a checklist that identifies how much a surgical intervention differs from usual practice. If it meets a certain threshold, the tool triggers support to make it safer for the patient.

“My grand plan is to use the conceptual tools from moral philosophy and ethics to identify and understand practical issues in healthcare and to try to resolve them in ways that make healthcare safer and better for people,”罗杰斯说.

我们的 有弹性的社会 future-shaping research priority focuses on understanding cultures in our changing world and building ethical, 公正和包容的社区.

  • 社会转型

Seeks to understand the impact of transformation on societies at global, national and local levels while also exploring the impacts of societal transformation on people’s identities, intimate and family lives and their perceptions of their place and role in society.

  • 的沟通方式

Undertakes linguistic and historical research on ancient to contemporary languages, 和口语, written and material transmission and interpretation of cultural traditions. 研究人员还调查了人们是如何生产的, interact and engage with creative writing and performance in contemporary environments.

Stefan Trueck教授, 他是金融风险中心的副主任, 希望保持澳大利亚公用事业的合理价格. He creates statistical or econometrical models to forecast the price behaviour of electricity. This is particularly important for large customers such as retailers who buy electricity on exchange and could be at risk because of extreme price fluctuations. 他的模型有助于对冲这些风险.

“我想做一些帮助别人的事情, help the economy and help financial markets to achieve better outcomes,”Trueck说.

我们的 繁荣的经济 future-shaping research priority focuses on strengthening economic productivity to promote prosperity in our diverse world.

  • Role, operation and risks in global financial and economic 系统

副教授布莱恩·阿特韦尔想要养活地球. Conservative estimates show that the Earth’s surface temperature will rise on average 0.下个世纪上升9摄氏度, which could mean disaster for plants that are highly sensitive to their environment. Atwell’s team has found a gene in heat-tolerant strains of rice in northern Australia that allows photosynthesis at higher temperatures, 提高工厂的生产力.

“There will be a group of people who have an open mind about using wild plants in Australia to try to improve the 15 or 20 major foods that feed almost everybody on this planet,”艾特维尔说.

Professor Nicolle Packer is helping in the fight against every disease in humans. 在她团队的项目中, UniCarbKB, data from all over the world come together to understand how sugars attach to the surface of cells and interact to bring about diseases. With the innovative technologies and the informatics needed to analyse data, the project makes it possible to develop new targets and diagnostics for these diseases.

“I truly believe these molecules are important in the way our bodies function and how they stop functioning,”帕克说. 正如我的一个博士后对我说的,“这都是糖的问题。. 过去是,将来也是.”


Professor David Raftos is working to future-proof Australia’s oyster industry. 此外,它还是新南威尔士州最大的水产养殖业, 牡蛎在河口生态系统的形成中起着重要作用, 比如在悉尼港和霍克斯伯里河. 与澳大利亚牡蛎产业合作, Raftos’ team discovered a set of genes in oysters that allows them to survive disease and tolerate environmental changes.

“到目top为止,我们的结果是显著的,”Raftos说. “In just a single generation of breeding using this new technology, we’ve had a 30 per cent improvement in the number of oysters that survive disease outbreaks.”
