Joint Research Training Centre for Medical Technologies
Co-located at the University of Melbourne as well as 3DMEDiTech’s advanced manufacturing facility in Port Melbourne, the JRTC will enable PhD students and biomedical engineering researchers to develop and apply their innovations within a commercial setting.
Paul Docherty: “Together with the Victorian Government, which has provided significant support to the JRTC concept, we are committed to building our knowledge economy through the creation of a world class MedTech innovation facility, designed with the objective of being the number one personalised medical device research centre in the world.”
The JRTC will…
– Foster entrepreneurship and create innovative technologies that meet industry and/or clinical unmet needs.
– Prepare students to be industry ready for future roles in the medical device industry.
– Develop opportunities for students to interact with industry, and for industry to be involved with the university (e.g. site visits and student placements at industry partner sites).
– Commercialise products and solutions for manufacture locally and for expansion into international markets.
By facilitating the development of our Victorian researchers, BRC is creating jobs for the future and – most importantly – we’re improving lives right across the country.
