Three cased study videos from ANFF Materials node
1. AquaHydrex: An ACES and ANFF partnership case study. We've discovered new materials that facilitate the breakdown of water into important fuels - hydrogen and oxygen. This is commonly known as water splitting. View on the ACES YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOQ5FwNGCPA)
2. Cartilage Regeneration: An ACES/ANFF case study. In collaboration with Prof Peter Choong from Melbourne University, we're helping to repair defects seen in arthritic patients, with scaffolds and stem cells. We're recreating the exact type of cartilage that is missing. View on the ACES YouTube channel (https://youtu.be/cG06AzKRS2c)
3. Islet Cell Transplantation: An ACES/ANFF case study. In collaboration with Prof Toby Coates from the University of Adelaide, we're producing 3D printed scaffolds containing islet cells to enhance the efficiency of cell therapy to treat type 1 diabetes.

General Manager (ANFF-Vic and MCN)
The MCN and ANFF-Vic now seek a strong and dynamic General Manager to work closely with the Director in setting operational standards and, strategic management and direction. Key aspects of this role will be the implementation and monitoring of the strategic priorities for the centre, while ensuring all day to day operations are managed through staffing, financial and resource management.
Senior Professional Officer in Precision Sensing and Nanoscience, University of Queensland
Senior Professional Officer position is available for a three year term in the University of Queensland Precision Sensing Initiative. The role will provide operational, technical and strategic support to researchers in the in the fabrication, integration and packaging of precision sensing devices, and engage as appropriate with relevant industry stakeholders. It will, further, be central in the development of an Optoelectronic Integration Facility at the University of Queensland for packaging and rapid prototyping of devices.
Applicants should have demonstrated expert knowledge in the area of micro/nano device fabrication and characterisation, optoelectronic integration/packaging, wafer bonding, and/or fibre pigtailing. You should also possess the ability to establish effective relationships and to represent and promote the Precision Sensing Initiative and Optoelectronic Integration Facility at a university and wider community level, including industry, government and professional bodies.
The University of Queensland Precision Sensing Initiative is a joint initiative between the Schools of Mathematics and Physics and Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at the University of Queensland (http://www.smp.uq.edu.au/psi). It aims to translate next generation sensing research into industry-ready technologies for the biomedical, aerospace, resources and defence industries; and to strengthen the Universities engagement with industry partners.

ANFF to update AusMedtech 2017 & ICMMB 2017 on emerging medical technologies
AusMedtech is Australia’s premier medical technology conference. For the first time, it will be co-presented with the International Conference on Mechanics in Medicine and Biology (ICMMB).
The joint conference will bring together key stakeholders of the Australian and international medical devices and diagnostics sector to explore topics such as biomaterials, medical devices, assistive technologies for an ageing population, tissue engineering, 3D printing and the mechanics of future medicine.
AusMedtech 2017 & ICMMB 2017 will include plenary presentations from Prof Anthony N Burkitt, Director, Bionic Vision Australia, University of Melbourne and Prof Peter Choong, Sir Hugh Devine Professor of Surgery, University of Melbourne Director of Orthopaedics, St. Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne. A business breakfast will be hosted at the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF).

Prof Justin Cooper-White ANFF QLD node director co-director of new facility
The Queenland ANFF node director is the co-director of the new facility launched on 17 October at the University of Queensland. It is a new $7 million regenerative medicine research centre to improve older Australians’ quality of life and increase their participation and productivity.
2016 ANFF Annual Research Showcase
The ANFF Annual Research Showcase this year will be held on Wednesday 16 and Thursday 17 November with a technology training day on Tuesday 15 November at the National Centre for Synchrotron Science (NCSS) building, Australian Synchrotron. This promises to be an exciting event with presentations of the latest ANFF research with a theme of Mind the gap. ANFF is enabling researchers to close the gaps between technological challenges and research outcomes through access to state of the art equipment and fellow researchers across the organisation. We look forward to welcoming you at the event.
