Flinders Industry Engagement Showcase
23 September 2014

Researchers at Flinders University have extensive experience collaborating with industry to solve company challenges, to improve business and in many cases lead to the commercialisation of new or improved products.

This event will showcase two unique programs designed to engage researchers and business, the Medical Device Partnering Program (MDPP) and NanoConnect. With a panel session involving researchers and industry partners who have participated in these programs attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and explore how University collaboration can give their business an edge.

Held at Flinders Victoria Square, the 3-day program will feature oral presentations in biomedical imaging and biomechanics by Medical Device Research Institute (MDRI) members Professor Mark Taylor, Dr Egon Perilli and Dr Saulo Martelli, whilst Dr John Costi and Dr Egon Perilli will also be session chairmen.

Among the speakers MDRI PhD students Melissa Ryan, Rosidah Ab-Lazid, Bryant Roberts, Dhara Amin and Isaac Lawless will also present their research.

Event host, Dr Egon Perilli said that this year’s event will be the biggest so far for the society, with a record number of abstracts received and delegates registered.

“We received more than 80 abstracts from Australia and NZ which is fantastic for this growing conference,” Dr Perilli said.

ANZORS represents a stream of basic and applied scientists ranging from molecular biology to biomechanics and bioengineering, orthopaedic surgeons, rheumatologists and industry scientists who have passion, dynamics and motivation to pursue orthopaedic research.

Earlier this year Flinders University’s MDRI hosted an International Orthopaedics Workshop in Adelaide, bringing together leading experts from Austria, the UK, Italy, the Netherlands and Australia.
