2018 Bill Wheeler Community Symposium

Bill Wheeler was a very active member of the Illawarra community who took a keen interest in new bionics research at the University of Wollongong (UOW).

In honour of Bill, each year the Bill Wheeler Award is presented to an outstanding UOW bionics student at this free community event.

A prize of $2,000 is awarded to the applicant who best communicates the social impact of their research and how the prize will benefit their work.

The 2018 feature presentation will be given by ENT Surgeon at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Prof Payal Mukherjee who will be discussing her work on the development of 3D printing techniques for prosthetic ears.
