ARC Training Centre for Innovation in Biomedical Imaging Technology (2017–2022)
The proposed ARC Training Centre aims to transform Australia¿s Medical Technologies and Pharmaceuticals
industry, helping to unlock its great potential to lift the nation¿s prosperity. The Centre expects to train 20 industryready
innovation scientists who will undertake industry-driven research to overcome bottlenecks in the
development and application of novel diagnostics, therapeutics and theranostics and to inform changes in
regulatory policy that support industry growth. It builds multidisciplinary links between researchers at the
University of Queensland and in industry to develop `smart¿ probes and `smart¿ scanning, harnessing the digital
revolution for better, cost effective diagnostic imaging and improved health outcomes.
