Help turn dreams into reality

Disorders such as cancer, trauma and degeneration lead to reduced lifespan and impact on quality of life and the ability to live independently. Our vision is to create a dedicated hub – the Advanced Biofabrication Centre – bringing together medicine, engineering, science and industry to revolutionise how we approach medical solutions to these chronic health problems.

The ability to build organs, bones, nerves and even muscle – to literally replace body parts - will deliver life-changing opportunities for our patients!

“Going from the possibility of an amputation to where you preserve the limb on account of one (replacement) bone is rewarding if you can achieve it,” says Professor Peter Choong, Director of Orthopaedics at St Vincent's. “Science advances have allowed us to consider 3D printing of bones. We printed a heel…that’s an example of how we’re transferring science and research into practice.”

The Challenge

The Great Southern Crossing is a virtual cycling charity challenge for teams of up to five riders that launched on 1 September 2016.

Throughout the event, cyclists log their kilometres on their regular rides using Strava or MapMyFitness and track their progress to see how far they can go on the epic 5,200km virtual route crossing Australia, all while raising funds for their favourite cause.

The route for Great Southern Crossing. 5,200 kms.
