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.
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.
It explores the positive and negative impacts of novel medical devices. More importantly it also features an article from our own Mr Jason Chuen!
