ARC Centre for Medical Implant Technologies Launch Event

It’s been a big month for 3dMedLab. Apart from presenting at multiple meetings recently, as well as organising our own — 3dMed 2019 Nov 15-16 at AAMI Park, in case you didn’t know — today was the official launch of the Australian Research Council Centre for Medical Implant Technologies, which we have conveniently abbreviated as ARC-CMIT.

This brings together 24 organisations across hospital clinicians, academics, and industry in order to develop an integrated framework for 3d printed prostheses, implants, and personalised surgical devices, including The University of Melbourne, Epworth Healthcare, Flinders University and Griffith University.

Austin Health 3dMedLab is proud to have been a key partner of this application from its inception and we will be delivering the key grass-roots clinical component of this centre, helping industry, academics, and engineers gain experience in and understand how this technology will function in a real-life, working hospital environment. Given the expertise that is in this research team, you would be hard pressed to find a problem we can’t solve if we put our collective minds to it!

Special thanks to Ali Moore for hosting this event and Katie Allen MP for visiting.

ARC Training Centre Application Successful!

We are excited to announce that our joint submission to the Australian Research Council Industrial Transformation Training Centre Grant to build Australia’s Medical Implant and MedTech capacity using 3D Printing has been successful! This will allow us, together with The University of Melbourne, Flinders University, Griffith University and multiple other project partners to fund post-graduate students who will spend time engaging in university-based training as well as workplace-based training in clinical and industry settings.

3dMedLab on Seven News

In the lead-up to our presentations at the RACS Annual Scientific Congress #RACS18 we were interviewed by Georgia Main and Hope Wilson from Seven News Melbourne about our work in pre-surgical 3D printing. Our papers identified how medical 3D printing improves patient and carer understanding of their disease, leads to better satisfaction and engagement in medical care, assist surgeons to train for and plan complex surgery, and improve outcomes by reducing operating time, and blood loss.
