ARC Training Centre for Medical Implant Technologies
The Australian Research Council Training Centre for Medical Implant Technologies (ARC CMIT) is funded by the ARC Industrial Transformation Research Program and provides training to PhD students and early career researchers to undertake research projects with industry and clinical partners.
The ARC CMIT specialises in personalised 3D printed orthopaedic and maxillofacial implants and 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.
