Design and manufacture of personalised face filtration respirators using 3D printing

The scale of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent disruption to global supply chains has led to an acute shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) for Queensland healthcare workers. In response, a state-wide taskforce was established in March 2020 to investigate alternative supplies of essential PPE such as face filtration respirators (FFRs), typically N95/P2 face masks which are in high demand for frontline healthcare workers treating respiratory illnesses such as COVID-19.This project aims to develop novel reusable patient and clinician specific-face …

Specialised medical 3D printing development

Biofabrication is 3D printing applied to medicine. In the Biofabrication and Tissue Morphology Group, our research involves developing 3D printing technology to enable the fabrication of personalised 3D constructs to repair lost or damaged tissue.We design and build specialised 3D printers and electrospinning machines capable of fabricating customised 3D porous structures out of advanced biomaterials for applications in healthcare, medicine and surgery.Learn more about our research at the Biofabrication and Tissue Morphology Group website

Biofabrication and tissue engineering

Biofabrication and tissue engineering seeks to create 3D scaffolds containing cells to heal defected tissue.People suffering from tissue loss often have to have autografts (where tissue is transferred from one part of their body to the other, leading to 2 sites of surgery and associated morbididy)We use scanning modelling and 3D printing to create 3D scaffolds that can perfectly fit the defect site and may contain cells or growth factors to stimulate new tissue formation - this circumvents the need …

A biofabrication surgical referral suite to predict intracranial aneurysm rupture

Intracranial aneurysms are bulging, weak areas of an artery that supply blood to the brain which are relatively common. While most aneurysms do not show symptoms, 1% spontaneously rupture which can be fatal or leave the survivor with permanent disabilities. This catastrophic outcome has motivated surgeons to operate on approximately 30% of aneurysms despite their rate of complications arising and cost of operation.The impact of aneurysm morphology on blood flow shear stress and rupture could educate surgical decision-making and better …
