These impact stories demonstrate the tangible impact that UNSW Science makes, especially in collaboration with its partners. These case studies shows the breadth and depth of UNSW Science and how each project has made an impact on industry, community, the environment or how they have set up future research possibilities.

Our research impacts

Environmental sciences

UNSW scientists are dedicated to discovering and understanding how our planet works as a system, how ecosystems and species are formed and evolve, and how human behaviour affects the planet.

Health sciences

Our researchers are exploring the complexity of human biology and behaviour to mitigate disease, improve human health and increase social harmony.

Materials sciences

We're shaping the future in research, business, government and industry, developing new materials, instruments and systems that will contribute to industry and improve conditions for many people on the planet.

Fundamental sciences

Our fundamental science researchers use an interdisciplinary mix of scientific fundamentals to deliver a range of practical and theoretical solutions for management of disease, overcoming environmental problems and innovating our understanding of the universe.
