Revolutionary graphene filter could solve water crisis

A new type of graphene-based filter could be the key to managing the global water crisis, a study has revealed. The new graphene filter, which has been developed by Monash University and the University of Kentucky, allows water and other liquids to be filtered nine times faster than the current leading commercial filter.

Fantastic Voyage to the 'nanoverse' one step closer

Robots so small they can enter the bloodstream and perform surgeries are one step closer, a research team from Monash University has discovered. Read more…


Monash researchers developing wearable blood pressure monitor

Methods for measuring blood pressure have varied only slightly in the last 100 years, but researchers at Monash University are set to revolutionise the medical monitoring landscape. Known as cuffless blood pressure estimation, this innovative new device requires only a few small sensors to be placed on the body to measure blood pressure, rather than the inflating ‘cuff’ many of us are familiar with.
