‘Bionic Spine’ scientist to speak at Science at the Shine Dome

A biomedical engineer working on the ground-breaking development of a ‘bionic spine’ will give the keynote address at this year’s Science at the Shine Dome symposium Human PLUS (May 26, Canberra).

Dr Nick Opie will speak at the symposium which explores how science is blurring the lines between humans and machines, with everything from bionics to printed organs.
