The institute will offer opportunities for Australian scientists, engineers and clinicians to be employed in cutting-edge multidisciplinary research that will benefit people around the world, while attracting significant private sector and philanthropic investment.
Biofabrication researchers at the institute will be able to work closely with clinicians, industry partners and other research institutions located on the Herston Health Precinct, and engage with collaborators internationally through virtual networking technologies.
The institute's diverse spaces will be designed to promote collaboration around clinical issues and stimulate the generation of innovative research ideas and clinical applications. The FutureHear project will be just one part of the incredible research work that will be done at the institute in the field of biofabrication.
