Improving quality of life through biomechanics, surgery and industry collaboration
Melbourne-based start-up MAXONIQ developed a breakthrough, 3D-printed jaw for debilitating end-stage bone and joint conditions, improving the lives of patients worldwide. This first-of-its-kind device brings together biomechanics research, surgical expertise, and cutting-edge 3D-printing technology to provide a safe, efficient and cost-effective solution for complex conditions of the jaw, which may not be treatable otherwise. MAXONIQ was established to commercialise the device and is now an award-winning company advancing the field of customised surgeries.
- Impact: Over 260 ArthroJaws have been implanted in patients, transforming their quality of life
- Innovation: The ArthroJaw, a highly personalised, 3D-printed titanium jaw joint
- Partners: MAXONIQ, The University of Melbourne, Sabre Medical, Bres Medical, Osteon Medical, Brandwood CKC, OMNI Dental, Materialise, Objective 3D, PartMaker
- Partnership approach: A collaboration between Australian-owned MAXONIQ, the University of Melbourne and industry partners
Accelerating the discovery of novel cancer therapies
Researchers at the University of Melbourne have partnered with Pfizer to build on crucial research that will likely change the game for cancer immunotherapy. While the long-term goal is to develop better treatments that change people’s lives, major therapeutic achievements require discovery research. As well as research funding, Pfizer provides access to frontline therapeutics, scientific analysis, and the ability to test findings with existing treatments for compatibility.
Impact: Accelerating the discovery of new therapeutics to treat cancer and other chronic diseases
Partnership approach: Multi-year research partnership
As a company, we benefit enormously from the ongoing University of Melbourne relationship, which provides us with the confidence and legitimacy we need to promote our devices to discerning clinicians and surgeons who expect solid research backing for each Maxoniq medical device they use.
