We welcome the involvement of surgeons for any ideas they wish to develop for new surgical instruments, 3D modeling, mechanical and electrical devices, robotics, mechatronics, new materials and new imaging techniques. Our engineers and scientists work on scales from nano- to micro- to the macro- scale. A number of Monash affiliated surgeons are already involved and some have been successful in obtaining our seed grants for new technology development.
The current successful seed grant projects are on our MIME website.
We would be pleased to advise on how to set up a collaboration, the IP issues and how to develop connections with industry. We will also advise the surgeon on how to plan and achieve a commercial outcome for their ideas. Please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) of Heather St John the MIME Chief Operating Officer at Heather.Stjohn@monash.edu if you wish to explore ideas.
