The UniBar is the place to ‘B’ to find out more about the Biophysics of our Bodies, through to the Biomechanics of Breasts.
Fighting Disease, One Molecule at a Time
Professor Antoine van Oijen (ARC Laureate Fellow, Distinguished Professor, University of Wollongong)
Physics and medicine come together in the development of microscopy so powerful that we can visualise individual protein and DNA molecules. The ability to see how they behave helps us better understand how they might play a role in disease.
The Biomechanics of Better Bras
Professor Julie Steele (Senior Professor (Biomechanics), University of Wollongong)
My talk will provide an overview of how biomechanical research is used to improve bra fit and bra design so that all women, irrespective of age and breast size, can enjoy the health benefits associated with an active lifestyle.
