Your support will help in the quest to revolutionise the healthcare system, find solutions to some of our most pressing medical issues, and find better quality outcomes for patients' health and wellbeing.
A world-first hospital of the future
Millions of people worldwide still don’t have access to effective or affordable healthcare. The World Health Organisation has identified weak primary healthcare as one of the top ten threats to global health.
Even in developed countries such as the United States and Australia, significant healthcare challenges exist, and treatment options are hampered by cost, time and technology. Ageing populations, the growing prevalence of chronic diseases and rising healthcare costs put pressure on already overstretched health services and budgets.
Many current treatments are based on decades-old practices and technology and are not always available, particularly in remote areas. Meanwhile, patients have higher expectations and seek better quality outcomes for their health and wellbeing.
While there is a global drive to realise the health opportunities of 3D technologies and biofabrication, no other group aside from the QUT Biofabrication and Tissue Morphology team has integrated all the required aspects into a single facility.
Your gift will help:
- support the 'hospital of the future' prototype in transforming the future of healthcare with biofabrication and 3D printing for healthcare
- develop precision manufacturing that allows personalised and customised solutions for surgery, implants, prosthetics, bionics, clinician training and patient education
- provide visionary leadership in key clinical areas such as burn injury treatment, orthopaedics, vascular surgery, urology and cancer care
- support the training of future health innovators.
The real world impact of your gift
With your support, we aim to lead the way in biofabrication with precision manufacturing to provide personalised and customised solutions for surgery, implants, prosthetics, bionics, clinician training and patient education.
