Gene discovery by UniSA researchers has provided the possibility to better predict clinical outcomes in prostate cancer patients, which will have a direct impact on patient survival and help prevent over-treatment.
UniSA researchers are using nanotechnology to enhance brain tumour therapy and detection systems, treat those suffering from type 1 diabetes, improve immune responses for transplant patients, and produce bandages that can diagnose and treat infection.
Find out how Professor Nicholas Procter is improving the quality of life for vulnerable people with a mental health condition – including refugees, the elderly, and those living in rural areas – to reduce the rising rate of suicide.
The same gene which enables flies to fly could hold the answer to healing chronic wounds, including the debilitating rare skin condition epidermolysis bullosa (EB).
Alumnus Teresa Sapio spent 10 years working towards her goal of becoming a registered nurse. When choosing her ‘three words to live by’ Teresa was inspired by her determination.
Placing importance not only on the treatment of the disease and the physical body, but also on a patient’s quality of life and overall wellbeing.
How ecosystem services are worth at least twice that of the whole global market economy, as valued by economists.

When the opportunity arose to donate to the Great Hall, alumnus Margaret Duncan drew upon her thriving career and her experience as one of UniSA's first graduates to select her three words to live by “Opportunity – Success – Vision.” which she is placing on the Chandelier.
Following a serious accident, alumnus David Dahm redefined what he thought was the meaning of ‘success’. Read as he talks about how his achievements and awards have come about by giving back to society, and why he chose his ‘three words to live by’ when donating to embed himself in the DNA of the Great Hall.
Ground breaking cell biology research out of Adelaide's Centre for Cancer Biology could open the door to new ways to stop the spread of cancer.
The stuff of science fiction is moving closer and closer to reality. Imagine nanoscale capsules loaded with therapeutic payloads that pass through the blood supply, releasing their cancer-limiting agents only when they meet the tumorous cancer cells.
