Launch of the new Joint Research Training Centre for Medical Technologies


A new Joint Research Training Centre (JRTC) for Medical Technologies is set to make Melbourne a leader of innovation in personalised medical device technology and commercialisation, securing better health outcomes for patients and a growing talent pool of industry-ready biomedical engineers.


The JRTC for Medical Technologies is a collaborative initiative between 3DMEDiTech – Australia’s first large-scale manufacturer of customised 3D printed medical and healthcare devices – and the University of Melbourne.


PhD students and post-doctoral fellows will be co-located at the University and at 3DMEDiTech’s cutting-edge facilities in Port Melbourne, as part of a suite of initiatives to be established through the JRTC for Medical Technologies.


Professor Peter Lee, JRTC for Medical Technologies Director, said the Centre evolved from 3DMEDiTech’s partnering in the ARC Training Centre for Medical Implant Technologies, based at the University of Melbourne.


The JRTC was launched on 5 October 2022 at the University of Melbourne.
