CENtre for Technology and User driven Research system to Improve Outcomes for Neurological disease
On this page we will feature a series of videos filmed with members of our Melbourne Brain Centre team, introducing and discussing a series of new technologies that are facilitating and furthering investigations across a range of research disciplines. The rate of progress being made in both scientific research and technological advancements means that each passing day brings us closer to significant breakthroughs that enhance our understanding and improve patient care.
INTRODUCING BIOSENSORS & THE CENTURION PROGRAM
By Prof Stan Skafidas
In this video, Professor Skafidas introduces the CENTURION Project, focussed on developing next generation technologies that will allow for patients to be more effectively and efficiently treated in the future.
INTRODUCING THE STROKE WATCH
By Prof Bernard Yan
In this video, Professor Yan introduces a new point-of-care device called the Stroke Watch. Developed by Melbourne Brain Centre researchers, in conjunction with University of Melbourne engineers, the device is able to monitor Stroke patient's motor function and help physicians make informed treatments decisions in real-time.
INTRODUCING THE TRICORDER
By Prof Patrick Kwan
In this video, Professor Kwan introduces us to the tricorder, a Star Trek insider device designed to expedite the undertaking of diagnostic tests, in a way that makes it more user friendly, cheaper and convenient. In turn, this accelerates the process of making informed treatment decisions.
INTRODUCING MS REACTOR
By Dr Anneke Van der Walt
In this video, Dr Anneke Van der Walt introduces MS Reactor, a software program being used by the multiple sclerosis research group to more accurately assess and monitor a patients cognitive / memory function, both in the clinic and at home.
INTRODUCING THE NANOSTRING MACHINE
By Dr Andrew Morokoff
In this video, Dr Morokoff discusses research he is leading investigating brain tumour biomarkers, that may assist with determining the type and behaviour of a tumour, as well as the most appropriate treatment approach. As part of this, he introduces us to the Nanostring Machine and explains its role in this process.
