ARE YOU A STUDENT FROM VICTORIA?
After the success of our Melbourne Satellite Chapter in 2022, we are continuing to expand and want to give more students the opportunity to work on a project with a world-class researcher. The BIOTech Futures Challenge in MELB will follow the same structure as NSW and International challenges so check out what's in store here. Please note the MELB Challenge will take place before the NSW challenge so register your interest so you don't miss out. Finalists and runners-up from each Satellite Challenge will have the opportunity to fly out to Sydney to present at the Sydney Symposium.

ABOUT THE VIC CHALLENGE
The Victorian BIOTech Futures Challenge is hosted by the Melbourne Bioinnovation Student Initiative (MBSI) at the University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia in collaboration with the Graeme Clarke Institute for Biomedical Engineering.
Registration for the VIC challenge will open from June 5th. However, due to limited places spots are filling up fast. If you or your group are keen on participating don't forget to sign-up.
MBSI is lead by a group of undergraduate, postgraduate and medical students with backgrounds across science, engineering and medicine. We share an interest in technology and its applications in medicine and the biological sciences.
We founded MBSI to nurture the next generation of medtech and biotech innovators. We are a registered charity and nonprofit organisation entirely operated by volunteers, many of whom are current students at the University of Melbourne. Beginning with only a small team of like-minded classmates in late 2020, we now count over 50 volunteers and 200 members across the organisation.
Our aim is to help students and other young people explore this space by providing opportunities for multidisciplinary collaboration and learning.
Membership in MBSI is free and open to all; there exists no requirement for a prospective member to be a student, nor affiliated with the University of Melbourne. In fact, we encourage anyone with an interest in medical technology to join as a member. To find out more about our initiative and become a member click the link below.
