BioMedVic members engaged with medical device discovery and development will be excited to learn that the Medical Device Partnering Program (MDPP) has arrived in Victoria. Part of a national expansion, MDPP-Vic has been made possible thanks to the support from LaunchVic, the Victorian government agency for the advancement of the state’s start-up sector. MDPP will receive $2 million over two years to deliver the program in Victoria, which will officially launch in early 2019.
Sally McArthur, Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Swinburne and CSIRO Research+ Science Leader in Biomedical Manufacturing, will be the Regional Director of MDPP in Victoria. The organisation is confident that the program will create opportunities, new ventures and employment for Victoria.
BioMedVic’s CEO Prof Jan Tennent is delighted to be a member of the MDPP Victorian Steering Committee, which includes representatives from five BioMedVic members: Swinburne University of Technology, CSIRO, The University of Melbourne, Monash University and RMIT University.
