We are very pleased to congratulate Professor Peter Lee and colleagues including A/Professor Andrea O’Connor, both CIs on the ARC CPTT, who have been successful in their bid for a Training Centre for Medical Implant Technologies.
The ARC Training Centre for Medical Implant Technologies aims to train a new generation of interdisciplinary engineers and to transform the orthopaedic and maxillofacial implant industry in Australia. In collaboration with industry, universities and hospitals, the Centre will build a dynamic training environment for interdisciplinary engineers to develop and evaluate personalised implants and surgeries. It will create new networks, international collaborations and a generation of industry-ready researchers critical for growing Australia’s industry. The advances in materials and savings in time for procedures will reduce costs.
Congratulations Peter, Andrea and team.
