Adaptable, affordable vaccines for multiple conditions

Despite safe and effective vaccines being available for a wide range of infectious diseases, prevention and treatment of more complex conditions, including allergy and cancer, remain elusive. Furthermore, vaccines are complex to manufacture, making them difficult to produce to a scale, quality and cost that supports widespread global access. An ongoing collaboration between South Australian biotech company Sementis Ltd and UniSA’s Experimental Therapeutics Laboratory has developed a vaccine delivery platform that can potentially produce easy-to-manufacture vaccines for multiple acute and chronic disease conditions.

“The collaboration with UniSA over the past 11 years has resulted in the development of what is Australia’s most advanced viral-vector vaccine technology platform technology, and we look forward to continuing the collaboration to support the work of Sementis to scale this vaccine technology ready for clinical trials.”

Leanne Hobbs, CEO, Sementis

Turning complex data into stories people can see

The world has seen a rapid increase in the amount of data available on everything from our health to our education to our national security. While this huge bank of information holds enormous potential benefits, finding a way to present it in a digestible, usable format is a key challenge shared across a range of sectors. UniSA is working with BAE Systems and IMCRC to develop simple visual methods for representing complex data to map the operational and service histories of warships.

“Sometimes industry can be constrained in its thinking as a result of process and procedures which we are required to adhere to, especially in the defence sector. Collaborating with university researchers, like those at UniSA, enables industry teams to again think freely, as such constraints are not embedded in academic researchers.”

Wendy Bourke, Senior Project Manager, Innovation, Research and Technology, Hunter Class Frigate Program, BAE Systems

Local talent meeting global VFX demand

To meet the Australian film and television industries need for fresh and highly skilled visual effects talent, UniSA and Rising Sun Pictures partnered up to deliver tailored VFX postgraduate programs, student placements and mentorship opportunities.  

RSP saw the opportunity to not only nurture creativity and develop workforce-ready artists, but also invest back into their state of origin. Since this partnerships inception in 2015, approximately 30 UniSA alumni are currently employed at RSP and over 120 graduates working in industry.

“Course delivery at RSP is more than just learning technical skills, we value add to the students’ experience here by incorporating master classes, resume, show reel and interview tips. Our goal is to make the students’ learning as immersive as possible and be studio ready, and I think we’ve successfully achieved that.”
