Biomedical engineer Marcus Pandy and orthopaedic surgeon Peter Choong discuss how modern imaging technology is shedding light on human locomotion, particularly in knees and other joints. They also explain how this new found knowledge is used to improve surgical outcomes for patients. With science host Dr Shane Huntington.
Prof Mark Cook and Assoc Prof David Grayden discuss new lines of research in neural implants and the associated computational models that allow epilepsy patients to be forewarned of impending seizures. They also discuss nascent technologies that may prevent seizures from occurring. With science host Dr Shane Huntington.
Control engineer Associate Professor Chris Manzie makes the case that there's a lot of life left in the internal combustion engine, and that petrol engine technology will continue to evolve alongside its hybrid and electric counterparts. With host Dr. Shane Huntington.
Chemistry Associate Professor Eva Harth and Chemical Engineer Dr Angus Johnston discuss how cancer treatments may be vastly improved through drug delivery at the nanoscale. With science host Dr Shane Huntington.
Systems engineer Professor Iven Mareels explains how applying contemporary control-systems approaches to irrigation is reinvigorating this ancient water-transport method, bringing huge savings in the agricultural use of H2O. With science host Dr Shane Huntington.
IBM computational biologist Dr Ajay Royyuru and computer scientist Professor Justin Zobel discuss the intersection of life sciences with high-end computing, and how computational scale may dramatically enhance biological and genetic research. With science host Dr Shane Huntington.
Chemical engineers Associate Professor Raymond Dagastine and Dr Rico Tabor shed light on the phenomena of bubbles and droplets, and explain why their underlying physics and chemistry are important to a wide range of industrial processes. With science host Dr Shane Huntington.
Energy and climate change analyst Dr Roger Dargaville weaves together diverse technical, economic and environmental factors to produce a model for better, smarter use of our energy supplies. With science host Dr Shane Huntington.
