UQ has been awarded funding for more research projects than any other university in Australia

UQ’s exceptional honour roll includes two new ARC Australian Laureate Fellowships, 14 ARC Future Fellowships and funding for an ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre for Innovation in Biomedical Imaging Technology.

The 17 grants have been awarded to UQ research projects spanning biotechnology, electrochemical energy, ecological impacts of cattle production, antibiotic resistance, cultural history, quantum systems, and atomic physics.

UQ Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Peter Høj said it was an outstanding result for UQ and again demonstrated the strength of the university’s research.

“UQ has been awarded funding for more research projects than any other university in Australia, and we ranked number two for total funding, with $22.6 million in grants,” Professor Høj said.

“UQ has won the lion’s share of ARC Future Fellowships funding, securing $12.1 million which accounts for 15.7 per cent of the total $77 million in grants.

“These results underscore UQ as the destination of choice, given that we have been awarded more ARC Future Fellowships across the life of the scheme than any other university, and it comes less than a week after our researchers were awarded $4.3 million for 12 ARC Linkage Projects.

“This is a real testament to the quality of researchers we have at the university,” he said.

“I’m delighted to note that six of UQ’s 14 new Future Fellows are women.

“There is also an excellent spread of Future Fellowships across UQ’s broad areas of research, with five going to researchers in humanities and other non-science disciplines.”

ARC Australian Laureate Fellowships have been awarded to Professor George Zhao, who is working to develop sustainable electrochemical energy storage technology, wastewater resource recovery expert Professor Zhiguo Yuan.

Professor Zhao, of UQ’s School of Chemical Engineering, will get $2.8 million over five years for research to develop next-generation energy storage applications based upon sodium-ion capacitors.

Professor Yuan, director of UQ’s Advanced Water Management Centre, will get $2.9 million over five years for research into bioconversion of methane into higher-value liquid chemicals.

“Professor Yuan’s work on biotechnology solutions through the cost-effective production of liquid chemicals from biogas could propel Australia to the forefront of sustainable resources research,” Professor Høj said.

The University of Queensland will have a new ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre for Innovation in Biomedical Imaging Technology, backed by $4.7 million in ARC funding and an additional $1 million provided by industry partners.

The centre will train 20 industry-ready innovation scientists to tackle skills gaps in radiochemistry and diagnostic imaging in Australia’s medical technologies and pharmaceuticals sector.

The centre will draw together leading researchers and industry partners to develop novel diagnostics, therapeutics and theranostics for cost-effective diagnostic imaging and improved health outcomes.

Professor Høj said UQ’s powerful performance across the ARC funding projects was further evidence of the university’s commitment to supporting leading researchers and enabling them to create positive change.

UQ has received more funding for Discovery Projects and DECRA than any other Australian university

UQ’s combined result in these two schemes for 2016 also tops the country, with more than $39.7 million awarded.

UQ Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Peter Høj said this reinforced UQ’s position among the nation’s leading research-focused institutions, and recognised UQ’s excellence in developing the next generation of world-class researchers.

“Our consistent success in attracting competitive research funding is evidence of our high-calibre researchers and the direct relevance of their projects to solving pressing global problems,” Professor Høj said.

UQ attracted funding across three ARC schemes:

  • In Discovery Projects, 78 UQ proposals share a total of just over $30 million. UQ enjoyed a 23.56 per cent success rate across its Discovery Project applications, well ahead of the national average of 17.7 per cent.
  • A total of 27 UQ researchers share more than $9.7 million under the Discovery Early Career Researcher Awards scheme, with UQ a clear leader in Australia.
  • Three Linkage Infrastructure Equipment and Facilities projects were funded for a total of almost $3.3 million.

“It’s fantastic to see the breadth of research that will proceed at UQ in coming years as a result of this new funding, in areas such as engineering, social sciences, biochemistry and climate change strategy,” Professor Høj said.

“As a former head of the ARC, I know how tough the competition is, and how truly impressive the research proposals need to be to succeed.

“It’s a great delight again to congratulate a group of UQ researchers who have attracted funding for their work, which is independently seen as the nation’s best in their respective areas.”

Significant highlights of the funding announcement:

  • In UQ’s largest Discovery Project grant this round, the Institute for Molecular Bioscience’s (IMB) Professor Kirill Alexandrov secured $650,000, for a four-year project to develop novel, sensitive, inexpensive and flexible electric biosensors to potentially monitor any molecule.
  • Professor Mark Moran and Professor Jennifer Corrin from UQ’s Institute for Social Sciences Research secured $628,000 for a project to address how to better manage the flow of public finances and people across international borders.

James Cook University wins ARC research funding

James Cook University scientists have been awarded more than $1.1 million for ground-breaking research into rare earth compounds, coral reefs and Australia’s succulent plants.

Science degrees at James Cook University

JCU wins ARC research funding

The Minister for Education and Training, Senator Simon Birmingham, announced the Australian Research Council’s Major Grants.

Dr Hugo Harrison from the ARC Centre for Coral Reef Studies at JCU has received a Discovery Early Career Researcher Award worth $366,000.

Dr Harrison will study how the movement of coral fish between Australia’s Coral Sea and the Great Barrier Reef affects the ecology and evolution of the species. It will be the first study to measure the connectivity of these areas and identify critical regions for the design of networks of marine protected areas.

James Cook University Professors Peter Junk and Joe Holtum have been awarded a total of $756,500 under the Discovery Projects scheme for two separate projects.

Professor Junk will undertake research into rare earth compounds, to underpin future applications in chemical manufacture, new materials and recycling.

With abundant, but until recently neglected, rare earth resources Australia is positioned to become a major supplier of these strategic elements as the world faces a shortage created by a Chinese monopoly and much reduced exports.

Professor Holtum will investigate why Australia, the driest vegetated continent, has no landscape dominated by large succulents but nevertheless supports distinctive, diverse and widespread succulent plants.

He will explore the evolution, assembly and biodiversity of Australia’s succulent flora, examining the roles of genetic composition, photosynthetic physiology, aridity, fire, soil nutrients and salinity in its historical expansion.

UQ leads the nation for prestigious ARC Laureate Fellowships

Better drugs for chronic pain, building food security, and research into evolutionary diversity have attracted more than $8 million in funding for the University of Queensland’s latest ARC Laureate Fellowships, announced June 23.

The Australian Research Council named 15 new Australian Laureate Fellows, including three UQ researchers –  the Institute for Molecular Bioscience’s Professor David Craik, the School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences’s Professor Philip Hugenholtz and the TC Beirne School of Law’s Professor Brad Sherman.

UQ’s new Laureate Fellows attracted the largest share of ARC funding in the nation. The trio will share in more than $8.72 million over five years.

UQ Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Peter Høj said the funding showed the ongoing strength of UQ’s research.

“The Australian Laureate Fellowships are the most prestigious awards funded by the ARC and are highly sought after by the research community,” Professor Høj said.

“Even with an increase in applications of almost 30 per cent, UQ has for the second consecutive year come an equal first in the number of Laureate Fellowships awarded and first outright in ARC funding dollars awarded.

“I congratulate UQ’s 2015 Laureates who have succeeded in the toughest of competitions, and justifiably so. They are brilliant researchers who will use their fellowships to push the frontiers of knowledge and translate that research into outcomes that will benefit Australia’s society and economy.”

Professor Craik has been awarded $2.97 million for his work with cyclic peptides.

His program as an ARC Australian Laureate will aim to find a way to turn peptides, produced naturally in plants, into stable, protein-based drugs that can be taken in the form of an edible plant seed (bio-pill) and used to treat a range of diseases with fewer side-effects than existing therapies.

“This funding will help support talented young researchers in my group to translate their work into tangible outcomes,” Professor Craik said.

“Peptides (mini proteins) are creating much excitement in the pharmaceutical industry, and the work funded in this fellowship will help to realise their potential as ‘next generation’ medicines.”

University of Queensland Professor Brad Sherman was awarded $2.76m for his research in harnessing intellectual property to build food security.

His fellowship project will aim to maximise the benefits and minimise the costs of using intellectual property protection to improve agricultural productivity and food security in Australia and the Asia Pacific.

UQ Professor Philip Hugenholtz was awarded $2.98m for his research in microbial ecology and genomics.

His project on reconstructing the universal tree and network of life aims to obtain 100,000 genome sequences from uncultured organisms, so called “microbial dark matter,” and systematically organise them into natural evolutionary relationships to provide a comprehensive overview of microbial diversity.

“The framework developed in this project seeks to replace the current incomplete classification of micro-organisms to provide fundamental insights into ecology and evolution,” he said.

“We hope that project outcomes can be applied to manage risk and capture opportunities in important Australian industries including agriculture, mining and biotechnology.”

Study at the University of Melbourne!

Funding received by the university comprised $22.4 million for 57 Discovery Projects, $7.1 million for 20 Discovery Early Career Researcher Awards and $2.7 million in the Linkage, Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities scheme.

Three projects at the Faculty of the Victorian College of the Arts and Melbourne Conservatorium of Music were awarded $1.1 million in funding, to investigate the role of music therapy in rebuilding identity post-injury, understanding motivation and practice quality in elite music performance and the hearing histories of the western Pilbara.

University of Melbourne Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) Professor James McCluskey said the grants recognised the great breadth and depth of the research at the university and strengthened its world-class research, teaching and learning.

“This funding is a welcome investment in the future. The university is pleased to be leading the way with projects that will address the grand challenges society will face in the future on a global scale.

“The support from the ARC is based on a rigorous competitive process and reflects the outstanding quality of research at the University of Melbourne,” he said.

Some of the funded projects include the following:

  • Islamic family law and the Australian legal system:  There has been increasing debate in Australia in recent years about whether the Australian legal system should recognise Islamic family law processes. This research will look into the experience of Muslim women and how these processes operate in Australia and how policy can best address some of the challenges at play.
  • How musicians practice: As funding and resources for Australian musicians is scarce, this research aims to better understand how musicians can make the most of their the time spent practicing and how consistent practice has been found to increase performance, learning, creativity and well-being.
  • Why are there so many cyclones?: There are currently almost 100 tropical cyclones per year around the globe, but no one knows why so many occur. This project will conduct a series of climate model experiments to help understand more about this weather phenomenon.
  • What’s next after the Higgs boson discovery?: Researchers will work to answer the question, what is the origin of dark matter? The project will search for new, as yet undiscovered principles of nature and the effect these have on our existence.
