University high on agenda for Senator’s visit

The University of Wollongong through Breast Research Australia is an international leader in breast health research and education. It is led by Professor Julie Steele and Dr Deirdre McGhee.

The value of this resource was brought home to the Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Sport and Minister for Industry and Innovation, Senator Kate Lundy during a visit to UOW this week.

The Senator saw a presentation and received a background briefing on Breast Research Australia. It is an internationally innovative centre of excellence committed to providing evidence-based research, education and commercial and clinical services to decrease breast-related discomfort and injury so all females can participate comfortably in activities of daily living, work and recreation.

Earlier in her visit, Senator Lundy visited UOW’s Innovation Campus. She highlighted how the Innovation Campus was well positioned to become one of the Federal Government’s new industry innovation precincts.

The Australian Institute for Innovative Materials based at the Innovation Campus was the first stop on her whirlwind tour of Wollongong.

“One of the things that struck me was the way in which the institute was working with industry . . . which sits in harmony with the government’s recently released industry statement,” Senator Lundy said.
