Free talks: Organoids, changing the game for personalised healthcare

Using one drop of blood, Professor Ernst Wolvetang and his team can grow a miniature version of your brain to test how your cells age and respond to therapeutic drugs. This ground breaking research is leading the way in understanding and treating diseases like epilepsy and Alzheimer’s. Join Professor Wolvetang at the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN) to discover how this work is leading to personalised healthcare for every Australian.


Free tours: Go behind the scenes at the AIBN to see how bioengineering and nanoscience are changing the world

Organoids, flexible batteries and future foods made from carbon capture, are just some of the exciting projects happening within the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN). Go behind the scenes and tour the labs to learn first-hand how AIBN researchers are solving society’s most serious problems in health, energy and the bioeconomy.  Lab tour safety requirements: attendees must be aged 15+ and wear fully covered, comfortable, fluid resistant shoes without high or narrow heels (min 25mm wide, max 50mm high).
