Changing Lives with Science

When 16 Apr, 2019 5:30pm — 7:00pm Where The Shine Dome, Gordon Street, Acton Website

Electronic skin might sound futuristic, but Australian scientists are making this cyborg-like tech a reality. These scientists and a Melbourne-based company are merging this science, innovation and industry to improve human health.
Hear from Prof Madhu Bhaskaran about how she has developed flexible, unbreakable and transparent electronic devices that function as ‘electronic skin’. Her devices have potentially life-saving applications in health and human safety—from fighting skin cancer to detecting dangerous gases.
Also hear from Sleeptite CEO, Cameron van den Dungen, about how he is using Madhu’s remarkable sensors to improve wellbeing and health outcomes for older Australians. Sleeptite sensors provide real-time feedback on a user’s health and sleep quality
