BrisScience / New frontiers in 3D printing

What do a mechanical and materials engineer, a food scientist and a periodontist have in common…?


…surprisingly, 3D printing.

Join our panel as they challenge your preconceptions about 3D printing and, hopefully, change the way you think about manufacturing, food production and dentistry forever.


  • Monday 6 June 2016
  • 6:30pm to 7:30pm (doors open at 6pm)
  • The Edge, State Library of Queensland, South Brisbane
  • Light refreshments will be provided following the presentation
  • RSVP This is a free event. Please register to secure your seat

Meet our panel:

Dr Michael Bermingham is a mechanical and materials engineer working with new metallic additive manufacturing technologies in the Queensland Centre for Advanced Materials Processing and Manufacturing at The University of Queensland. Michael’s research explores how additive manufacturing (3D printing) can enhance the design and manufacture of products for medical, automotive and aerospace applications.

Professor Bhesh Bhandari is a food scientist at The University of Queensland exploring the potential application of 3D printing for novel food product design and development. Bhesh and his team are looking at how food can be digitally designed, printed in a 3-dimensional shape and applied to develop new texture, taste and appearance.

Professor Saso Ivanovski is a periodontist at Griffith University. Using 3D bioprinting, Saso and his team are revolutionising regenerative medicine by printing living bones, gums and teeth using a patient’s own cells. This research has big implications for the field, providing innovative ways to restore form, function and aesthetics following the loss of tissue or organs due to disease and trauma.

BrisScience // Mars… could there be life?

This event is not being held at The Edge.

This event is being held at UQ.

 

 

Space. It’s fascinated generations, inspiring scientists and artists alike.

This month our expert panel take an in-depth look at Mars and the future of space travel, while attempting to answer the age-old question… are we alone in the universe?

The panel:

Professor Tamara Davis is a cosmologist interested in investigating new fundamental physics, including the properties of dark energy and dark matter, but has also published on astrobiology. She wants to know whether life on Earth could have originated on Mars.

Professor Gordon Southam is a geomicrobiologist, who uses both biological and geological sciences to examine the bacterial transformations of materials in the earth’s crust. He will argue that we are Martian.

Professor Michael Smart is an engineer and Chair of Hypersonic Propulsion, and is working to revolutionise high-speed transport through clean burning, hydrogen-fuelled engines that could make access to space much easier in the future.
