ECSE researchers receive major funding for Bionic Eye ResearchThe Monash University project proposed for the ARC Research in Bionic Vision Science and Technology Initiative has received $8 million funding which was announced 15/12/09.
The successful team involves Monash University (ECSE researchers in the team include Prof AJ Lowery, A.Prof Kleeman, Dr. N. Karmakar and Dr. W.H Li) and the Alfred Hospital, and will receive $8 million to develop a device that is implanted directly on the region of the brain that processes vision signals (the visual cortex). This will provide treatment for progressive blindness.
More information on the ARC Bionic vision website.
ECSE SeminarsThe various research groups in the department hold seminars about ongoing research, including postgraduate scholars reporting on their progress.
A list of research seminars is available, which also contains location and time information.
