A prize of $2,000 is awarded to the assist the student with travel to share their cutting-edge research and build new collaborative relationships.
The 2018 feature presentation will be given by Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Surgeon at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Professor Payal Mukherjee, who will be discussing her work on the development of 3D printing techniques for prosthetic ears.
This event is free and open to the community to come along and hear the latest on the exciting advances in bionics research.
