The Iverson Health Innovation Research Institute’s overarching vision is to identify, understand and solve real-world health challenges across the human lifespan. Providing an evidence base for innovation in personalised healthcare, our Institute strategically cultivates connections both within Australia and across the globe, drawing on existing partnerships and forging new ones from research, industry and government.
Our key capabilities
We exploit Swinburne’s expertise in mental health, neuroscience, ageing, disability, bioengineering, data science, digital technologies, design and social science to pursue our core research programs.
Our Institute is named after Professor Don Iverson, the Inaugural Executive Dean of the Faculty of Health, Arts and Design at Swinburne and an internationally acclaimed academic leader and researcher in health and medical sciences.
Nirtek is developing Near InfraRed AutoFluorescence (NIRAF) laser technology
We’re developing an optical fibre technology for a medical device that will prevent heart attacks and save lives. In partnership with the Baker Institute, we’ve established the company Nirtek to commercialise this exciting technology.
“Hard challenges need places to provide innovators the ecosystem to think outside the box, navigate complex research industry and societal challenges, and build not only the solution, but the ecosystem to support the realisation of that solution in everyday lives. Iverson = Impact.”
Professor Robert Gorkin
CEO Eudaemon Technologies
