Eosinophils

UNSW scientists have shown in mice that eosinophils, a type of immune cell, could be important in activating a type of fat that burns energy instead of storing it.

Coal-fired power plant

Making catalysts to convert waste carbon dioxide into useful industrial products has been expensive and complicated – until now. UNSW engineers show it’s as easy as playing with Lego.
