Putting Melbourne on the Map
At BioMedVic, we’ve been brewing up exciting plans for Members.
We are delighted to announce that BioMedVic will be supporting publication of an online interactive research network map produced by Nature Index, which will show output and collaboration in high quality research between institutions in the greater Melbourne region. This updateable map will be based on publications in the top natural science journals tracked by the Nature Index website (www.natureindex.com), which is an open access platform owned by Springer Nature, publisher of Nature, with data published under a creative commons license.
Trial to Image “Hearing Brain” of Children Set to Begin
Deaf children may soon hear more clearly, thanks to a Melbourne trial starting in March.
Using a non-invasive technique, Professor Colette McKay and her team at Melbourne’s Bionics Institute will image the “hearing brain” of children – data which could help clinicians tune hearing devices for infants and newborns for a sense of hearing much closer to the real thing.
