In response to the unprecedented change and rapid shifting of research and education landscapes during 2020, the Monash Warwick Alliance is inviting researchers, educators, students, and professional staff to continue to connect virtually and shape novel approaches to global collaboration in education and research.
Bringing together Sociolinguistics and Emergency Medicine, Jo Angouri, Professor of Applied Linguistics at Warwick and Adjunct Professor at Monash, leads on developing practical communication strategies for medical teams working in restrictive Level 3 PPE.
Rapid depletion of fossil fuels and the consequent increase in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions has led to one of the greatest environmental challenges of our time; the greenhouse effect. Finding effective ways of minimizing CO2 emissions has become a major focus for governments around the world, with the UK becoming the first major economy to pass a net zero emissions law, requiring all greenhouse gas emissions be reduced to net zero by 2050. Industry and business globally are following suit in order to meet their legal and social responsibilities.
The discovery of how hormone-like molecules turn on antibiotic production in soil bacteria could unlock the untapped opportunities for medicines that are under our very feet.
An international team of scientists working at the University of Warwick, UK, and Monash University, Australia, have determined the molecular basis of a biological mechanism that could enable more efficient and cost-effective production of existing antibiotics, and also allow scientists to uncover new antibiotics in soil bacteria.
“Doing a Joint PhD will never be easy, but that’s what also makes it so worthwhile. Having interuniversity and interdisciplinary supervisors is incredibly stimulating and helps me be creative” says Monash Warwick Alliance Joint PhD candidate, Simon van Baal.
