UNSW scientists in Professor Merlin Crossley’s group have shed light on a crucial mechanism in the field of epigenetics, an area of gene regulation.

Governments and taxpayers asked universities to generate their own funds – and they did – but now the music has stopped.

We must change if we are to keep in step with the modern world around us – and with this in mind UNSW has spread out its academic calendar. We will continue to make adjustments, listen to the students at UNSW and also talk to others at universities like Stanford and UCLA.

New findings show Australians value and support the role universities play in society, want open access to a university place for domestic students and want the next government to review post-secondary education.

Genome editing technology has, and will always have, limits. Limits that are related not to the technology itself but to the intrinsic complexity of the human genome.

The world seemed to be inching forward with CRISPR gene editing technology – but suddenly the forbidden fruit has been plucked, and some even worry that the CRISPR tree has been cut down.

Once genetic lesions for diseases such as cystic fibrosis and haemophilia were identified, the idea of replacing or correcting defective genes grew into what we now call "gene therapy".

There's peer review – and then there's peer review. With more knowledge you can dive in a little deeper and make a call about how reliable a science paper really is.
