Users on our systems work on a range of projects across the life sciences. Current highlights from some high profile researchers and their projects include:
Professor Tony Burkitt, Research Director of Bionic Vision Australia (BVA) and Professor of Engineering at the University of Melbourne, has been using our systems to examine the effect of electrical stimulation upon the neurons in the retina, with the aim of developing improved vision processing algorithms for retinal implants. Over 2016 this research program had a number of important achievements, mostly in the development of more refined computational models and new signal processing techniques.
Earlier this year the commercial arm of BVA, Bionic Vision Technologies, announced the commercialisation of the first generation of its technology and it will be ongoing modelling and refining of techniques which will contribute further to BVA’s outcomes. Prof Burkitt said, “It's great to see this technology transitioning into clinical and commercial use, and we're excited about what the future holds for this area!”
