Engagement, Outreach & Education

Engagement and Outreach

CBNS researchers have engagements with external organisations across a range of areas, from the development of biosensors for water quality to mathematical modelling of age-related differences in blood clotting in neonates and children. For more information about our collaborations and how you can connect with us please visit our pages:

Public outreach

In addition to these relationships the Centre runs a number of activities that are open to the public. These include scientific workshops, public lectures, and laboratory open days. Information about public events we are running or are involved in can be found on our Events page

Our program of outreach activities is informed by the Centre’s research on the social dimensions of bio-nanotechnologies, led by Dr Matthew Kearnes.

Visiting Professor Program

Each year the CBNS hosts an international expert as part of our Visiting Professor Program. In addition to visits to our nodes around Australia the Visitor provides the plenary talk at the International Nanomedicine Conference, cohosted by the CBNS and the Australian Centre for Nanomedicine at UNSW.

More information about the Visiting Professor Program.

Education Program

Our Education Program includes workshops on current research and media training for scientists. Most activities are aimed at CBNS members, but some are open to other researchers or the public. More information about our education programs can be found here.
