Welcome to M3D

The ARC Training Centre for Multiscale 3D Imaging, Modelling and Manufacturing

About us

The ARC Training Centre for M3D Innovation officially commenced operation 1 July 2019 and it is funded for five years. At the moment we are still in the start-up phase focusing on finalising our project portfolio and recruiting PhD students and Postdocs.

The Australian National University (ANU) is administering the Training Centre. The activities are centered around the The National Laboratory for X-ray Micro Computed Tomography (CTLab) which is a world leading Micro-CT imaging, reconstruction and visualisation facility.

The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) node of the Training Centre is hosted by The Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI) which is a multidisciplinary health and biomedical research institute devoted to improving the health of individuals and communities through research innovation.

To ensure industry focused PhD projects, each project is conducted in close collaboration with an industry partner. Our 14 Partner Organisations are:

  • Australian Museum
