BioFab3D@ACMD is micro/molecular and 3D and bioprinting translational research facility at St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne (SVHM). It served as a pilot study to unite multiple institutions to work collaboratively for translational medical research discovery and commercialisation. These institutions included SVHM, University of Melbourne, RMIT University, Swinburne University of Technology and University of Wollongong.


BioFab3D@ACMD is one of Australia’s truly “non-territorial” laboratory spaces that is almost fully reconfigurable, and likewise uses shifting PC2 barriers at the flick of a switch. Laboratories and workspace are reconfigurable with no re-engineering needed. This project has been considered one of the most successful research projects at a small scale in Australia.
