Pre-conference tours and site visits


RMIT Micro Nano Research Facility

Address: Bowen Street, Melbourne, VIC 3000
Location: Melbourne City campus , Building 7 , Level 4

The Micro Nano Research Facility (MNRF) at RMIT University enables the transformation of discoveries into technology. With capabilities in manipulating light, electronics, and fluids at scales from a single atom in size to the width of a human hear, we undertake full prototype lifecycle development from design, fabrication, characterisation and packaging. Visit us to experience medical technologies at various stages of the commercialisation path from using light to measure molecules, electronic skin that measures things within and around you, droplets that target lung cancer cells, to capsules you swallow to under the gut microbiome.

RMIT Advanced Manufacturing Precinct

Address: 58 Cardigan Street, Carlton, VIC 3083
Location: Melbourne City campus , Building 55

Visit the Advanced Manufacturing Precinct the largest additive manufacturing facility in Australia which combines RMIT's expertise in technology and design innovation with a focus on additive manufacturing. Witness how the next generation of engineers, designers and technicians working closely with industry both in Australia and internationally to be the leader in the implementation of the next wave of additive manufacturing in Australia.




Address: 1st Floor, Clinical Sciences Building, 29 Regent St, Fitzroy, VIC 3065

Visit BioFab3D@ACMD, Australia's first robotics and biomedical engineering centre, embedded within a hospital. Here, researchers, clinicians, engineers and industry partners work to build biological structures such as cartilage, muscle, bone, nerves and organs: almost anything that requires repair through disease and physical trauma.

CAREN - Computer Assisted Rehabilitation Environment System

Address: 173 Wilson Ave, Parkville VIC 3052

The Computer Assisted Rehabilitation Environment System (CAREN) is a fully-integrated motion platform and treadmill, surrounded by an immersive virtual reality with high-speed motion capture cameras. A truly ‘field-in-a-lab’ system with real-time feedback, it evaluates human cognitive and physical responses and provides quantitative neuromusculoskeletal information. It enables researchers to measure human motor learning and decision-making processes in a fully immersive virtual environment, opening up new capabilities in bringing field testing to the laboratory. High impact research disciplines that will benefit from the CAREN system are biomedical engineering, rehabilitation engineering, sports technology and defence.
