Approved Mimicking peptide structure   towards an aqueous environment

Project Title

2007 : $100,000

2008 : $100,000

2009 : $100,000

Primary RFCD 2503 ORGANIC CHEMISTRY


Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

In this proposal we develop a fundamental understanding of the balance between 'weak' and 'strong' forces to

define the properties of peptides and proteins. This will allow the design of new biological probes and materials with tailor made chemical and physical properties for use in bioengineering, biotechnology, proteomics, and drug

design. One such example is the design and preparation of a new chemical agent for the non surgical treatment for cataract, the major cause of blindness world wide.

Approved Psychotherapy in dealing with grief in Antiquity   strategies for contemporary society

Project Title

2007 : $27,000

2008 : $21,000

2009 : $21,000

Primary RFCD 4401 PHILOSOPHY


Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

Death and aging pose a major cultural as well as economic problem for contemporary society. They are

problematic in how we deal with them and a financial strain on society. By viewing grief as a universal human issue this project explores what contribution the ancient tradition can make to modern strategies. Ancient philosophical writings offer well considered reflections on how to work through grief, while many literary expressions provide a further opportunity for empathy and recognition. Thus the project will investigate whether the classical arguments and various experience based accounts offer both a rational and empathic source of consolation.


DP0770388 Prof NG Bean; Dr MM O'Reilly


Approved The use of stochastic fluid models for the evaluation of applications driven sample path

Project Title integrals.

2007 : $71,000

2008 : $66,000

Primary RFCD 2302 STATISTICS


Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

The major technical goal of this project is the production of novel methodologies which can be used to model and

solve real world problems of considerable engineering and/or environmental significance. The research for this

project will serve to enhance further Australia's reputation as a country which makes major contributions, both

theoretical and practical, to this field. The activities of the Stochastic Modelling, Analysis and Optimisation group at

the University of Adelaide and the School of Mathematics at the University of Tasmania will receive further

impetus, consequently maintaining a dynamic research environment for staff and students at both universities.

Links between the two groups will be strengthened.

2009 : $67,000

Primary RFCD 2802 ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND SIGNAL AND IMAGE PROCESSING


Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

The development of an automated system for acquisition of camera network topology is a crucial prerequisite to

obtaining intelligent surveillance systems operating at the network level. Such systems will contribute improved

methods for safeguarding Australia from terrorism and crime by facilitating the tracking of suspicious individuals

and vehicles, and detecting anomalous behaviours in busy environments. The leading edge techniques involved

will also constitute smart information use of significant commercial value to Australian industry.

Approved Minerals replacement reactions: understanding mineral formation under hydrothermal

Project Title conditions

2007 : $130,000

2008 : $90,000

2009 : $85,000

Primary RFCD 2601 GEOLOGY


Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

Many geological processes involve the transformation of one mineral into another. By understanding

molecular level reaction mechanisms, we can predict how fast reactions progress, and what the final product will

look like. This project focuses on a reaction mechanism called 'coupled dissolution reprecipitation', in which the

parent mineral is dissolved into a thin layer of fluid at the reaction front, and the daughter mineral subsequently

precipitates. This concept will be applied to sulfide minerals for the first time. The results have many applications

for the Australian mining industry, in particular in improving the efficiency of the processing of Ni  and Au ores.

Approved Modern Style Subduction Reflected in the 2.0 Billion Year Old East African Eclogites

Project Title

2007 : $50,000

2008 : $45,000

2009 : $30,000

Primary RFCD 2601 GEOLOGY


Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

Plate tectonics is the crustal expression of the dynamic Earth, and has been so for the past 2 billion years (Ga). As

the link between the deep Earth, the hydrosphere and the atmosphere, plate tectonics is fundamental to life on

Earth: it is what stands us apart from our planetary neighbours. Yet, plate tectonics may not have existed in the

same form for the first half of the planet's life. This project will 1) increase our understanding of the Earth at the

dawn of plate tectonics and foster community knowledge of the evolving Earth; 2) address the fundamental nature

of the Earth at the time of much Australian ore formation, thus assisting in deep Earth resource exploration.

Approved Evolutionary genetics of bovid genomes over 60,000 years

Project Title

2007 : $188,825

2008 : $178,000

2009 : $166,000

Primary RFCD 2702 GENETICS


Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

This project will provide data critical for understanding the genetic background of modern cattle and bison, and how humans have shaped factors such as milk yield, growth rates and muscle mass. It will also reveal genes and

genomic regions that were favoured in the domestication process, including those potentially linked to genes of

commercial interest for future research. This pioneering ancient DNA approach will also be applicable to a variety

of other domestic crops and animals. The unique temporal analysis of microevolution will provide crucial data for

genetic research, and groundproof our attempts to analyse the timing and nature of human evolutionary history,

major domestication events and inform conservation management.

2008 : $35,000

2009 : $40,000

Primary RFCD 3212 PUBLIC HEALTH AND HEALTH SERVICES


Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

This project will improve consent procedures for embryo and organ donation. This will increase the autonomy of

those consenting, the quality of consent that is given, and increase public trust in the processes of embryo and

organ donation. The legal and moral status of the wishes of the newly dead or embryo donors and will be clarified

thereby increasing the quality of consent processes for all involved. By including community values in addition to

the legal and moral issues, this project will make well founded recommendations for the development of laws,

policies and guidelines in relation to decisions about frozen embryos and the newly dead.

Approved Towards a miniaturised on chip terahertz biosensing system

Project Title

2007 : $86,995

2008 : $84,573

2009 : $81,429

2010 : $79,774

Primary RFCD 2999 OTHER ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY

APD Dr BM Fischer

Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

Terahertz (or T ray) radiation is highly sensitive to minute changes in the molecular structure of many substances.

Furthermore most packing materials are transparent to this new form of radiation. This implies enormous potential

for T rays in a range of applications from quality control via non invasive contact less chemical fingerprinting

through to safety and security applications. A detailed study of the molecular vibrations that give rise to these

fingerprints will help chemists and biologists to learn more about the underlying molecular binding forces, impacting on wide applications for safe non invasive sensing in the medical, security, chemical and food industries.

Approved The Initiation of Early Palaeozoic Subduction in Eastern Australia and North America:

Project Title causes and effects

2007 : $70,000

2008 : $60,000

2009 : $50,000

Primary RFCD 2601 GEOLOGY


Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

Identified thirty or more years ago subduction is the return of cold, dense, oceanic lithosphere to the mantle and is

one of the key dynamic elements of the plate tectonic paradigm. It is this process that is responsible for the 'Pacific

Ring of Fire'. It is the root cause of many key geological processes and is a primary control of some of the earth's

largest scale physiographic features, including deep sea trenches and mountain ranges. Using the important

record of Cambrian in eastern Australia and in the comparable Canadian Atlantic margin, we will look at the

causes and impact of the earliest stages of subduction as it first developed in the western Pacific and pre cursor

Atlantic 500 million years ago.

Approved Numerical simulation of seismic waves in the regional and global earth with 3D Gaussian

Project Title quadrature grids

2007 : $105,000

2008 : $105,000

2009 : $115,000

Primary RFCD 2602 GEOPHYSICS


Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

The ability to realistically model the propagation of seismic waves through the global 3D earth, taking account of all

internal and surface complexity, is extremely important for predicting the response to earthquakes and imaging the

interior structure. This will lead to fundamental new knowledge on Earth constitution and heterogeneity, and will

have spin off benefits in others areas such as exploring for oil and minerals, and better understanding of seismic

hazard. The numerical modelling and seismic data analysis will be done on a supercomputer, thus providing

important training for research students.

Approved Linkages Between Temporary and Permanent Migration in Australia

Project Title

2007 : $70,000

2008 : $68,000

2009 : $65,000

Primary RFCD 3705 DEMOGRAPHY


Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

Australia's economy and society has benefited from immigration more than any OECD country during the postwar

era. Moreover it will continue to be of great significance to national prosperity, productivity and sustainability.

However paradigmatic changes are occurring in global international migration systems and if Australia is to

continue to maximise benefits from immigration it must continually modify its policies to accommodate those

changes. The present project seeks to contribute to this effort by providing a better understanding of the

contemporary migration system. Such understanding is a necessary pre requisite for the timely formulation of

effective immigration and settlement policies and programs.

Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

The fields of nanotechnology, quantum technology and quantum information processing are rapidly converging.

This project aims to provide a novel approach in the fundamental understanding of quantum

computation/information by using methods inspired by mathematics of evolutionary competition. The project will

contribute towards the theoretical foundations of quantum computation by complementing efforts of several groups

in Australia collaborating on the experimental design of quantum computers. The outcome of this project will

contribute towards the successful operation of quantum computers and will help maintain Australia's position in the

global forefront of quantum computation/information.

Approved Establishment of the endocrine axes in the embryo and their xenobiotic distortion

Project Title

2007 : $116,567

2008 : $110,000

2009 : $100,000

Primary RFCD 2706 PHYSIOLOGY


Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

Millions of tons of supposedly harmless chemicals are produced and enter the environment each year. However,

some of these substances can act on wildlife and humans to distort the way that hormone systems are established

in the embryo, leading to subtle effects on health and function in later life. We will use one of the commonest of

these substances, found in many cosmetics, food wrappings, and medicinal plastics, to learn how hormone

systems becomes established in a healthy embryo, and how these then get distorted after exposure to these

compounds. This project directly addresses the way we assess the health of our environment, and offers ways to

screen for compounds which can have subtle effects on wildlife, domestic species and humans.

Approved A stochastic space time model of rainfall fields in large heterogeneous regions

Project Title

2007 : $124,281

2008 : $108,027

2009 : $113,572

Primary RFCD 2908 CIVIL ENGINEERING


Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

The extreme temporal and spatial variability of Australia's rainfall affects the quantity and quality of its water

resources, the productivity of its agricultural systems, and its aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Given the impact

of extreme events such as droughts and floods and given the massive investment in water related infrastructure,

evaluation of such risks is an issue of national economic, social and environmental significance. Stochastic

space time rainfall models enable rainfall and climatic variability to be quantified, simulated over arbitrarily long

periods, and risks assessed. This research will provide software and the development of rainfall modelling

frameworks for large river basins such as the Murray Darling.

Approved Truncating presenilin mutations and their effects on gamma secretase activity, tau and

Project Title beta catenin   insights into Alzheimers disease and cancer

2007 : $90,000

2008 : $88,000

2009 : $85,000

Primary RFCD 2702 GENETICS


Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

Cancer and dementia are primarily afflictions of the aged and are increasingly important in an aging Australian

population. 95% of all Alzheimer's disease is spontaneous (not inherited) but we know little about the molecular

mechanisms underlying it. Our discovery that truncated presenilin proteins potently inhibit normal protein function

suggests that changes in presenilin function in aged cells might be a common molecular link between spontaneous and inherited Alzheimer's disease and could contribute to frontotemporal dementia and cancer. Our research will show whether this phenomenon might provide a breakthrough in our understanding of these diseases and be a productive area for research into their amelioration and/or prevention.

Primary RFCD 2704 BOTANY

APF Prof SD Tyerman

Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

Calcium is a vital nutrient to animals and humans and its storage in vegetation is important for its accessibility. We

believe this storage is linked to water flow in the leaf by a novel mechanism. This project will provide fundamental

understanding of the cell type specific processes involved in calcium storage and water flow in plants. High calibre

PhD and Honours students will be educated to maintain the momentum of international excellence within Australia

in the field of plant nutrient relations. The increase in understanding will allow future work to improve calcium

availability and water use by plants to the benefit of agricultural productivity and quality of life.

APD Dr NP Murphy

Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

The mound springs of the Great Artesian Basin represent one of Australia's most unique environments and are of

national biodiversity, cultural and economic significance. Their conservation is a major issue following listing of the

springs as a threatened ecological community. As economic productivity in the GAB intensifies, the mound springs

are under increasing threat from escalating groundwater use. The results of this study on the evolution of two

crustacean groups will provide significant biological information for management plans, facilitating conservation of

mound springs communities, and helping to understand the impacts of water extraction and climate change on this

unique habitat.

Approved Investigating the coupled dependencies of soot in turbulent flames by advanced laser

Project Title diagnostics and modelling

2007 : $208,321

2008 : $176,742

2009 : $156,000

Primary RFCD 2999 OTHER ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY


Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

The community will benefit from the project by reduced air pollution and improved health and safety. Soot is a

major air pollutant, adversely effecting public health, while also contributing directly to global warming. It also

dominates heat transfer and influences the emissions of NOx and CO2. The project will significantly advance

detailed understanding and modelling capability of flames containing soot. Hence it will provide significantly

improved capability to optimise these flames in applications spanning gas turbines, power generation, minerals

processing and fires.

Primary RFCD 3801 PSYCHOLOGY

ARF Dr DJ Navarro

Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

This project seeks to understand the nature of human conceptual learning. With the shift to an information based

economy, it becomes important to understand what assumptions a real world learning system should make. Even

given the impressive growth of machine learning and artificial intelligence, the human mind remains the most

successful example of such a system. In this light, the scientific study of human conceptual structure presents the

opportunity to discover how an intelligent thinking system should operate. In addition, many important problems

facing an information economy involve being able to understand how people behave. An understanding of the

concepts people use is central to this endeavour.

2009 : $88,000

Primary RFCD 3801 PSYCHOLOGY


Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

Ageing men's health is poorer than women's and men show lower uptake of public health messages. The project

has potential to extend the productive involvement of older men in the community, thereby reducing dependence

and health care expenditure. Future benefits could also include an effective, convenient, preliminary screening

procedure for tracking abnormal cognitive ageing from an early stage among elderly people. This could be also

used to target and evaluate interventions designed to moderate morbidity in ageing, or enhance functional capacity with aging. The project will enhance cross disciplinary expertise and provide doctoral and postdoctoral research training.

Approved Micro reflections for pipe condition assessment in water networks

Project Title

2007 : $130,000

2008 : $120,000

2009 : $130,000

Primary RFCD 2908 CIVIL ENGINEERING


Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

Maintaining highly reliable water supply pipeline infrastructure for cities, towns and in rural Australia is extremely

important. Our research will develop new non invasive condition assessment techniques. Transient events will be

used to create pressure waves that travel up and down a pipe. Sophisticated analysis of the micro reflections in the measured pressure traces will be the heart of the new techniques. Water utility managers will be able to make a

detailed assessment of the interior pipe wall to determine if significant corrosion or deterioration of the cement

mortar lining has occurred. Rehabilitation strategies can then be determined. These new techniques will replace

camera inspections that are extremely invasive and expensive.

Approved New approaches to index theory

Project Title

2007 : $101,480

2008 : $101,480

2009 : $101,480

2010 : $90,000

2011 : $90,000

Primary RFCD 2301 MATHEMATICS

APF Prof M Varghese

Administering Organisation The University of Adelaide


Project Summary

The laws of nature are often expressed by differential equations, involving their rates of change. If 'elliptic,' they

have an 'index,' which is the number of solutions minus the number of constraints imposed. The Atiyah Singer

index theorem gives a striking calculation of this "index'. An extension is Fractional Index Theory, which has

received international attention, having solved a fundamental open problem. A central aim is to investigate this

further. I will assist beginners to navigate to the cutting edge of research through workshops, spring schools and

supervision. Benefits include the enhancement of Australia's position in the forefront of international research.
