    Meet Our Speakers: Developing Software for Medical Devices
    The regulation of medical devices by the TGA, FDA and other bodies means that developing software for medical devices is more complex than other software development.  In this week's Acutator Series session, we'll be looking closely at the different aspects developers should be aware of, whether they're developing a stand-alone software product or something embedded in another product, from the implications of developments in machine learning and cloud computing , to IP, regulatory and patent

    Spotlight on PlusLife, the Perth Bone and Tissue Bank
    This week's Actuator Series event is a special event in many ways, not only because it will be held as a daytime event on Friday 31 August from 10am-2pm, but also because of its venue at  PlusLife, the Perth Bone and Tissue Bank in Midland.  PlusLife is the only bone bank in Western Australia and one of the largest  facilities of its type in Australia.  From humble beginnings on a benchtop in the M Block at QE2 Medical Centre, in 2016 PlusLife received a $10 million State government grant to

    Meet Our Panellists: Prototyping for Medical Devices
    We've got a great line-up of creators and innovators as speakers for our Actuator Series event this Thursday on Prototyping for Medical Devices. Each has a unique set of experiences to share about the different stages of the prototyping process, whether early stage ideation or later stage design verification. Join us at 5:30pm on Thursday at CERI to hear what they have to say and ask questions, but until then read on to find out more. Megan Gobey, CEO and Founder, The Inventor's Hu Megan

    Alumni Case Study: Biacor Pty Ltd; and How To Identify A Good Unmet Clinical Need
    Biacor Pty Ltd came about as a result of its founders' participation in the 2017 SPARK Co-Lab Design Course (now known as Perth Biodesign).  Runners up of that year's Pitch Night event, Biacor is currently developing AbyWin™, a novel diagnostic which aims to improve the way clinicians diagnose prosthetic joint infections. Beyond its core aim of providing better outcomes and reassurance for prosthetic joint patients, the device has been designed to improve clinician confidence and save costs to

    Meet Our Speakers: Identifying A Good Unmet Clinical Need
    We're excited to kick off the second half of the year for Actuator Series with a session on clinical needs assessment - specifically, how to identify the right unmet clinical needs that can provide a foundation for successful product development. The ability to do this lies at the heart of the SPARK Co-Lab approach to solving real-life medical and pharmaceutical challenges, and taking these solutions out of the laboratory and into commercial and clinical reality. Tickets for this free event are

    SESSION RECAP: A Guide for Successful Project Management
    One of the first sessions we ran as part of the Actuator Series this year has also been one of our most popular, and one we continue to get questions and comments about – Project Management for Medical Researchers:  From the Petri Dish to the Gantt Chart.  We're exploring doing a rerun of the session later in the year, but in the meantime thought it might be useful to share some of the tips and tools recommended by our panellists:  Michael Challenor, Cettina Raccuia, Cosimo Santella and Michael

    Meet Our 2018 Alumni Fellows
    We're excited to announce the creation of our Alumni Fellows program, an opportunity for some of our past SPARK Co-Lab participants to return in a formal role as mentors to the teams taking part in the Perth Biodesign course. This year we are privileged to have six our alumni agree to share their time and insights to support us in this regard, from across both 2017 and 2016 Design Course (now Perth Biodesign) intakes.  Between them, they have invaluable knowledge to share with this year's
