From biomedicine and 3D printed implants, to mental health and more, we'll be discussing how our society's most complex health issues are being solved with the help of emerging technologies.
Like many sectors, healthcare is entering a period of rapid change. The advancement of new technologies and discoveries are fundamentally changing how we prevent, diagnose and treat diseases, as well as the relationship between medical professionals and patients.
Throughout this webinar, we’ll explore the role technology is playing in shaping the future of health and social care, focusing on some of the key areas of technological advancement.
This will be a live, interactive webinar discussion and Q&A with our three leading health industry experts on the panel.

Professor Milan Brandt is the Technical Director of RMIT’s Advanced Manufacturing Precinct. Engineers Australia has named him a Centenary Hero, an accolade reserved for engineers who have ‘come up with innovations that no-one could have imagined 100 years ago’. Merging the fields of engineering and medicine, Milan led research into Australia’s first locally-made, customised 3D spinal implant, which was successfully delivered to a patient in 2015. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, he and his team addressed the shortage of personal protective equipment by frontline healthcare workers through the 3D printing of face shields.
RMIT's Professor Vishaal Kishore is an expert in health system innovation and transformation. He is Professor of Innovation & Public Policy at RMIT University – where he works on major healthcare and urban innovation initiatives.
