Brand new hearts and bionic limbs
- the future belongs to a generation sustained by advanced bio-engineering
Described by Professor Andrew Coats as a unique interaction between the physical and life sciences, Bio3 is envisaged as a "research motel", a place where biological researchers, clinicians, scientists, chemists, engineers and mathematicians can come together to exchange ideas and research in shared labs.
The University of Sydney is establishing a Bio3 research and teaching facility that will develop and commercialise replacement body parts, electronic health surveillance systems and new forms of drug delivery. The ambitious project is the joint brainchild of Professors Richmond Jeremy, Associate Dean in the Faculty of Medicine, Hans Coster and Tony Weiss.
