Welcome to the October 2019 edition of IGNITE. This month's edition features our research into engineering a bionic eye and exploring how to utilise nanotechnology to reduce carbon emissions.
Discover how University of Sydney researchers, led by Professor Gregg Suaning, are one step closer to developing a bionic eye that they hope will restore sight to patients with vision impairment and blindness.
