That’s gold! Griffith finds cheap way to detect cancer

Griffith Sciences
Griffith University scientists have developed a new class of nanomaterials that could detect early cancer. The inexpensive, non-invasive diagnostic tool can deliver sensitive and specific results that are easily and quickly interpreted with less reliance on laboratory equipment. Working with the team from the University of Wollongong (UOW), the researchers have developed a new class […]

Lab on a chip: The future for drug discovery

Engineering, IT and aviation
A leading micro and nano technologist has revealed a new way to drug screen, saving the health system money and time. With the lab-to-market timeframe of a new drug being up to 20 years, Dr Say Hwa Tan of Griffith University’s Queensland Micro- and Nanotechnology Centre hopes his new technology and methods will slash that […]

Griffith University researchers have discovered significant new potentials for light harvesting through narrowing the bandgap of titania and graphene quantum dots. The researchers for the first time have found a quantum-confined bandgap narrowing mechanism where UV absorption of the grapheme quantum dots and TiO2 nanoparticles can easily be extended into the visible light range. Such […]
