The vision of Tyree IHealthE is to be a global leader in innovative healthcare practice and delivery. We will achieve this by working collaboratively to develop transformational and cost-effective health technologies that meet patient and clinician needs.
Tyree IHealthE will leverage UNSW’s expertise across the Faculties of Medicine and Engineering as well as specialised centres including the Ageing Futures Institute. Supported by a vibrant innovation ecosystem, UNSW researchers will work closely with industry and the healthcare sector. These collaborations will serve to take our biomedical engineering capabilities to a new frontier, and swiftly bring effective new models for disease diagnosis, prevention and treatment into mainstream practice.
Tyree IHealthE will have a major educational component embedded in its operation. Programs will support both undergraduates and higher degree research students. A multidisciplinary learning journey will be provided as students are exposed to the medical technology ecosystem, spanning device design, development, evaluation and commercialisation.
