Imagine a future in which joints and limbs damaged through cancer or trauma could be rebuilt. Where the best surgeons, biomedical engineers, biologists and robotics experts come together with industry under one roof to give patients faced with amputation a fully functioning limb so they can walk, work or hold a loved one again.
St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne and our partners, University of Melbourne, University of Wollongong, RMIT University and Swinburne University of Technology, are at the forefront of the 3D bioprinting revolution. Together we are building BioFab3D@ACMD to change the landscape of healthcare as we know it.
BioFab3D@ACMD will be Australia's first robotics and biomedical engineering centre, embedded within a hospital. Researchers, clinicians, engineers and industry partners will work alongside each other with a vision to build biological structures such as organs, bones, brain, muscle, nerves and glands: almost anything that requires repair through disease and physical trauma.
Be part of this revolution.
