Bioengineering solutions

Matching the capabilities in bioengineering with industry lead challenges.

The bioengineering solutions program focuses on aligning Swinburne capabilities in key bioengineering areas – such as nanotechnology, biotechnology and physics – to deliver innovative solutions to health market needs, with an emphasis on sensor and therapeutic devices

The program aims to match the capabilities in bioengineering with industry lead challenges. The Iverson Health Innovation Research Institute will identify partners to help develop further Swinburne-based technologies to meet market demands, for example, matching nanotechnology research with point-of-care diagnostics.​

Partnerships will include public and private hospitals and their related departments and research groups. We will look to collaborate with MedTech companies within the Melbourne area, but also further afield to see where aligning with other research institutes makes strategic sense.​
