Although all tissues have some regenerative capacity, the number and efficiency of the precursor-type cells responsible for self-healing (cells which can develop into any other cell types) is limited and decreases with age. Using a naturally occurring growth factor in combination with an approved anti-cancer compound, our researchers have developed a unique culture protocol that can repr...Sun, 23 Feb 2014 16:07:19 Protection for Your Encrypted Information, 04 Dec 2013 18:18:52 'non-invasive' test for Inflammatory Bowel Disease, 19 Aug 2013 23:07:35 implant to treat Parkinson's, 08 Aug 2013 17:26:35 Scaleable compression of spatial data sets, images and video., 08 Aug 2013 17:26:29 image and video compression, for surveillance and streaming media applications. Meta Data information representing objects motion images and video can be efficiently compressed to maximise bandwidth use while maintaining quality The Technology Efficient use of bandwidth in ever increasingly detailed video streams is a key driver for compression of video. The technology developed at UNSW is based on the JSIV (Jpeg2000 scalable interactive video) system and uses motion meta data to ensure a highly efficient compression focussing detail on objects of interest. This combination system allows for more efficient bandwidth use and image quality maintenance upon v...Thu, 08 Aug 2013 17:26:21 interactive remote browsing of video for network streaming., 08 Aug 2013 17:26:13 optimization and compression to maximize the efficient storage of media., 08 Aug 2013 17:26:11 Motion sensitive video transformation.

Background Traumatic brain injury is a major medical problem globally and is one of the leading causes of death and disability. There is no known treatment for stroke or ischaemic brain injury. A stroke is a medical emergency and can cause permanent brain damage and death. Risk factors for stroke include old age, high blood pressure, previous stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA), diabetes, high cholesterol, smoking and heart attack. Stroke is the second leading cause of death worldwide. The Technology This invention has arisen from our discovery of a novel isoform of the TRPC3...Thu, 18 Jul 2013 16:39:04 for Neurodegenerative Diseases, 25 Apr 2013 17:38:40 Delivery Solutions, 25 Apr 2013 17:38:36 Treatments - Blocking Cancer Cell Growth, 25 Apr 2013 17:38:34 network security breaches using new plug in hardware, 09 Apr 2013 17:01:53 Manufacturing Techniques for Solar Cells, 03 Mar 2013 17:10:12 Techniques for Printing High Efficiency Solar Cells UNSW has developed new dielectric patterning techniques to replace photolithography. Less steps, less and cheaper chemicals for manufacturing high efficiency solar cells. The Technology UNSW holds the world record for the efficiency of single junction silicon solar cell. The record of 25.0% was achieved using photolithography, which is too expensive for large scale commercial implementation. The UNSW patterning techniques, which use inkjet printing or aerosol jet printing, are cheaper than photolithography. They avoid the use of expensive masks and mask aligners. Digital images represe...Sun, 03 Mar 2013 16:39:16 Research Tool for Cancer and Inflammation Opportunity We have produced a series of monoclonal antibodies that bind to the ubiquitous basement membrane molecule, perlecan. These are useful as research reagents in various techniques such as ELISAs, immunocytochemistry and Western blotting to detect the presence and nature of perlecan produced by various cells. These will also be useful as probes of biological samples and may have utility as diagnostics of diseases like arthritis and cancer. Perlecan (HSPG2) is a multi-functional heparan sulfate proteoglycan, which was originally isolated from Engelbreth-Holm-Swarm (EHS) ...Tue, 01 Jan 2013 15:08:09 New Weapon to Control Bacterial Biofilms Chemistry to Disperse Biofilms that form in Industrial and Medical Environments The Technology is available under licence for FREE Biofilms are associated with a number of diseases and chronic infections, including cystic fibrosis and chronic wounds. Biofilms also form on medical equipment, catheters as well as cause industrial fouling and corrosion. Biofilm infections are problematic as the bacteria cannot be treated with existing antimicrobial agents. UNSW researchers have demonstrated that nitric oxide plays a key role in the dispersal of biofilms and have developed unique nitric oxi...Sun, 02 Dec 2012 14:44:06 Fuel System for Scramjets A Fuel System developed to increase the energy density and lower the ionisation threshold for hydrogen and hydrocarbon fuel in high speed air breathing engines such as scramjets. The Technology The development of scramjet technologies has suffered from the need to improve reliability and reduce requirements for ignition speeds and minimum operating temperatures. Current fuel systems used for the development of scramjets and other high speed engines require high temperature conditions to ignite and generate a thrust. Research at UNSW’s Australian Defence Force Academy has develope...Wed, 02 May 2012 22:41:19 Laser Ignition for Scramjets A laser induced ignition system developed for Scramjet engines and other gaseous flows. The Technology The development of scramjet technologies has suffered from the need to improve reliability and reduce ignition speeds and temperatures. Various methods of ignition have been used to overcome these issues, for example high energy electrical arcs, each of which raises new issues such as energy consumption. Research at UNSW’s Australian Defence Force Academy has developed a highly controllable, relatively low energy ignition system for gaseous fuel using a directed laser. Key Benefit...Wed, 02 May 2012 22:41:02 Lasting Batteries for Medical Implants Recycling in Multiple Linear Regulating Power Supplies The Technology Neurostimulation in implanted medical devices requires a high voltage at the implanted electrodes. A new current recycling technology developed at the UNSW for multiple linear regulating power supplies reduces power losses associated with generating internal low-voltage implant supply voltages for powering implant electronics This innovation can deliver extended battery life or alternatively a smaller battery size for comparable battery life. These advantages become more valuable as implantable medical device...Tue, 14 Dec 2010 20:26:02 the Pain of Inflammation - Arthritis Vaccine Technology Spondyloarthropathies (SpAs) are a family of inflammatory processes associated with HLA B27 polymorphism that develop into a number of conditions such as fusion of the spine or ankylosing spondylitis (AS), Reiter’s syndrome (or reactive arthritis), psoriatic arthritis, Crohn’s disease (a type of IBD) and uveitis. Our researchers believe that they have discovered the mechanism of action for SpAs, based on shared homology of specific peptide sequences that occur in Chlamydia trachomatis and also in a protein called lumican which is preferentially and abundantly expressed in...Wed, 27 Oct 2010 20:23:32 our Elderly: Cell-based Tools for Alzheimer’s Disease Drug Screening, 27 Oct 2010 17:47:59 Solar Cell Energy Output, 14 Jul 2010 23:12:40
