UTS-industry collaborations receive $5.5M boost
UTS Professor Dayong Jin has won a $3.7 million grant to establish a brand new Industrial Transformation Research Hub at UTS, to usher in the next-generation of primary care health detection devices. An additional six UTS-led projects, including three at the Centre for Forensic Science, have also been awarded Linkage Grants in the first round of Australian Research Council (ARC) Grants for 2016.
Professor Jin, who is marking his first anniversary at UTS, says he is very excited about the real-world application of his new hub, which will also have a node at the University of South Australia (UniSA) led by Professor Emily Hilder. Proposed projects for the hub include developing a hand-held device for the early detection of cancer, superbugs and pathogens, and to identify drug-levels in drivers and contaminants in milk.
