Changing lives among the urban poor
A five-year, Monash-led project aims to bring clean water and sanitation to impoverished urban communities.
MONASH: Delivering Impact highlights our ongoing success in research, innovation and discovery.
Among the work that will have transformative effects both locally and globally, we turn the spotlight on to the collaborative project that, through radically improving waterways and sanitation, will change lives among some of the world’s urban poor; look at how aerospace research is improving the efficiency of asthma inhalers with potential life-saving results; reveal how climate change is threatening one of the world's food staples; detail the discovery that has groundbreaking implications for treating autoimmune diseases; and much more.
