Student Cluster Competition at Supercomputing 2019

MASSIVE and Monash University, in collaboration with national partners, is hosting an entry to the Supercomputing Student Cluster Competition. See the Student Cluster Competition page for details.

A “super” receptor that helps kill HIV infected cells

Monash researchers, together with colleagues from the Pasteur Institute in Paris, have discovered a unique set of “super” receptors on immune cells capable of killing HIV across genetically diverse populations, making them a potential candidate for immunotherapy treatments. The work was published in the journal Science Immunology.

Underpinning Instruments: Australia’s first cryogenic focused Ion beam-scanning electron microscope

The Monash Ramaciotti Electron Microscopy Centre, in partnership with the Imaging CoE, has installed Australia’s first cryoFIB/SEM.

Bioinformatics: Finding the needle in the data haystack

When the human genome was first sequenced, it took thirteen years and around US$1 billion to get the first draft ready. Today, sequencing a human genome takes less than a week and costs around $1000.

Materials Modelling: A mathematical study of nuclear materials

When a radioactive element’s half-life is measured in hundreds of thousands of years, studying its behaviour in real-time is out of the question.

Gravitational waves and neutron stars

Astrophysicist Professor Andrew Melatos was one of 100s of international scientists who found the first evidence of the existence of gravitational waves. The three senior physicists behind the momentous discovery received the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics.

AI in Focus: Robotic Vision

Professor Tom Drummond of Monash University is working on computer-based models of the human brain’s visual cortex that will enable robots to make rapid decisions, based on a programmed understanding of their visual environment.

Optical Microscopy: Connecting the data
Microscopes so powerful they can be used to show protein structures and peer inside the cells of a whole, living organism are being built at the University of Wollongong. The $80 million Molecular Horizons initiative will see the university house one of Australia’s most powerful biological electron microscopes —the Titan... Read more »
