We have some exciting news!
The World Science Festival (WSF) will take place in Brisbane from March 9 to March 13, 2016! This festival will invite some of the world’s greatest thought leaders to Queensland, showcase local scientists and performers from around the Asia Pacific region, and host the brightest and the best from previous events in New York.
The Human Bionics Student Association will be participating in the WSF Street Science! So watch this space!
Dr Dornan initiated the Human-Bionics Interface Frontiers, and played a key role in the world-first cochlear implant MEG brain scanner study in collaboration with Macquarie University, Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence, and Cochlear Ltd.
More than 100 health entrepreneurs will spend 54 hours formulating and pitching a new health related business. If you have a desire and an idea about how we can improve health, then this event is a great way for you to concentrate on that idea, and have it transformed into a real concept through collaboration and mentor support.
Hosted at the Translational Research Institute, this event runs from March 11 to 13, 2016. Registration allows you full participation for the weekend including pitching, mentoring, food, use of facilities and networking.
Please help spread the word and check out last year’s Health Startup Weekend Brisbane video.

On October 14, Dr Stuart Hazell kindly met with students from the Human Bionics Student Association, QUT Fellowship of Medical Engineers, and UQ Medical Society to talk about Amblyoptica and biotechnology commercialisation.
With more than 35 years of experience in life sciences and biotechnology, Dr Hazell also spoke about the importance of gaining in-depth knowledge and ‘hard skills’, and also provided valuable insight on how technology will shape healthcare in the future.
If you would like to help the team at Amblyoptica, please feel free to contact them. We are very grateful for this meeting. Thank you for your time, Dr Stuart Hazell!
