Our COVID-19 research
Discover the pioneering work our researchers are undertaking to find technical solutions to COVID-19 testing and treatment, and to understand the impact of the pandemic on our world.
Monash engineers have developed the 'Torpedo Passive Sampler' - a cheap, accurate and simple testing device to detect SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater. This device has already been exported globally.
In partnership with an industrial consortium, Monash University researchers have come up with a simple, cost-effective and scalable paper-based medical gown that can be distributed globally in the battle against COVID-19.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Victorians have become accustomed to the convenience of working from home – flexible working hours, the kettle and coffee nearby, and more time with the family.
Professor Andreas Fouras is developing a series of algorithms which convert X-rays into 4D data, helping doctors to address the effects of COVID-19 by mapping airflow into the lungs.
As the world’s demand for internet usage has soared during lockdowns, our researchers were part of a team that recorded the world’s fastest internet speed from a single optical chip.
With the pandemic bringing community health needs sharply into focus, our researchers have found that social robots can help people develop and implement healthy lifestyle plans
The shocking economic consequences of COVID-19 and the ever-growing US-China trade war could bring welcome changes to our battery industry, if we seize the opportunity.
As the economy reopens,could congestion charging be a potential solution to manage the massive surge in cars that’s about to hit our roads?
Our researchers are working on medical equipment-related solutions to help minimise the spread of COVID-19 to health care workers and patients.
A world-first breakthrough in ventilator splitting could help hospitals under severe stress as the number of critical COVID-19 cases continues to rise.
