Professor of Biomedical Engineering/Swinburne University of Technology

  • Sally McArthur is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Swinburne University of Technology and a CSIRO Research+ Science Leader in Biomaterials. As an engineering researcher Sally has obtained approximately $22M in funding from research councils, industry and government in the UK and Australia. Her current research focuses on 4D Cell Culture Systems for biomaterials evaluation and testing. Based on tissue engineered models, her team aims to develop the materials, devices, monitoring tools and verification methods required to take translate these systems to academic and industrial labs across the globe.

    Sally is the Regional Director of the National Medical Device Partnering Program (MDPP), which launch in Victoria in January 2019 with funding from Victoria’s Start-up Agency, LaunchVic. The program is an ideas incubator that supports inventors to turn their medical or assistive device ideas into proven concepts.  We provide early stage development support by partnering clients with a community of experts including end-users and clinicians, manufacturers, service providers and world-class research partners and specialist facilities.
