ARC ITTC ABM’s postdoctoral researcher Dr Onur Bas receives Roland Bishop Award for Biomedical Engineering Research for his project entitled “Compliant robotic systems for biomedical applications”. The project explores the use of novel soft robotic systems in healthcare and offers unique solutions that address the limitations of conventional rigid robotic systems.

This $25,000 award  is funded through a generous bequest to QUT made by Mr Bishop when he passed away in 2017. This special award has been created by QUT in partnership with Mr Bishop’s family to support the work of talented researchers while honouring the contribution made by Mr Bishop to the development of medical devices, especially heart pace makers, that have saved countless lives.
