It is indeed an honour to be awarded this grant and also the opportunity to work with such a high calibre group at The University of Queensland’s Centre for Advanced Imaging and The Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology.
Professor Steven Mahler from The Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology said, “The success rate nationally for such grants is around 32% and therefore the grant is a very competitive one. It is certainly a great opportunity for our Scientists to be collaborating with a commercial partner like Aegros.”
