ARC Training Centre for Medical Implant Technologies

The Australian Research Council Training Centre for Medical Implant Technologies (ARC CMIT) provides training for PhD students and early career researchers to engage with industry and clinical partners. The Centre specialises in personalised 3D printed orthopaedic and maxillofacial implants. 


The ARC CMIT brings together world-leading biomedical engineers, scientists, and clinicians and connects these experts with medical implant global supply chain providers from Australia, China, Belgium, U.K. and the U.S.A. The goal of the ARC CMIT is to support research translation which leads to the development of best industry and clinical practice, new products, processes and solutions.

The ARC CMIT aims to: 

  • build knowledge and develop technology for rigorous evaluation of pre-clinical test methods, personalised medical implants and decision support tools;

  • train a new generation of engineers with a multidisciplinary R&D skillset, including knowledge of international standards, ethics and regulatory requirements for the personalised implant industry; and

  • coordinate and maximise industry-university-hospital collaborations for clearer pathways to commercialisation.


The ARC CMIT will build a robust training environment for interdisciplinary engineers to develop and evaluate personalised implants and surgical solutions. The Centre will create new networks, international collaborations and a generation of industry-ready researchers critical to growing Australia’s burgeoning medical implant industry.

















The ARC CMIT undertakes research across four nodes:

The ARC CMIT is funded by the ARC Industrial Transformation Research Program.
