Medal honour for UWA engineers

Two of the University of Western Australia’s top mechanical engineers have been recognised by Engineers Australia with the Sir George Julius medal for their ground-breaking research into the use of engineering computations in image-guided surgery. Winthrop Professor Karol Miller and Associate Professor Adam Wittek have been working towards improving clinical outcomes through appropriate use of technology. Their projects are funded by the Australian Research Council, National Health and Medical Research Council and other agencies. Research collaborations have also been established with leading institutions including Harvard Medical School, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and AIST Japan. The pair were awarded the medal for their paper Patient Specific Model of Brain Deformation: Application to Medical Image Registration, published in Biomechanics. It is currently ranked 10 among some 10,000 biomechanics papers published since 2007.
