The ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science is running a new PhD programme for a future job that probably doesn’t exist yet, in a field that's set to take off. The field of biofabrication is an emerging one in which a connection is made between medicine and technology, for example, prosthetic limbs controlled by thought alone, bionic implants to restore lost senses, and of course, 3D printing of human organs. Professor Gordon Wallace from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science, said the degree would provide participants with highly sought-after, internationally recognised skills in biofabrication. “Graduates of the programme will have an international network, a track-record of collaboration with the world’s leading bionics, fabrication and bio-ethics experts and an appreciation of all the processes involved in taking an idea through to commercial reality,”
