How to engage with us

Our people

Our staff collaborate on projects that lead to real-world impact and help shape the future.

Meet our people

Our research

Our collaborations bring together economics, biology, medicine, engineering and sciences to design and develop new equipment and methods that improve the quality of human health and life. Our research outputs are wide ranging - from ‘The Drifter’, a floating device that delivers real-time data to defend against flash flooding and water pollution, to a 3D-moulded mattress that supported a 10-year-old patient during a lengthy spinal surgery.

Centre for Biomedical Technologies

Our research and development focuses on better patient treatments and quality of life into the future using regenerative approaches, robotics and artificial intelligence, and advanced manufacturing to expand surgical possibilities and reduce complications.
