What began as an ideas incubator for the South Australian medtech sector has expanded nationally - setting a new benchmark for the translation of medical device technology in Australia.

In a recent case study, we profile the journey and impact of the Medical Device Partnering Program (MDPP), led by Professor Karen Reynolds and her team at Flinders University in South Australia.

In February 2021, MDPP received the Excellence in Science and Industry Collaboration award at the 2020 SA Science Excellence and Innovation Awards, which honours the depth and diversity of scientific endeavour and research in South Australia.

The program's ultimate goal is for Australia to set the global standard for the rapid translation of medical devices, from concept through to finished product.
