GRIT AND BONES At an age when most of her peers had barely heard of the term biomedical engineer - Maryam Parviz had already decided it was the career for her.  Born to a partially deaf mother, Maryam witnessed the power of technology to transform human health in the form of hearing aids. Inspired, Maryam set herself on the path of science and technology, studying biomedical engineering at Iran's prestigious Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic) before emigrating to Australia in 2012 to study under Prof. Justin Gooding of the University of New South Wales.  Since then Maryam has not only complemented her PhD, but also a postdoc at the Institute for Biomedical Materials and Devices at UTS, as well as specialist training in medical device commercialisation at Cicada Innovations in Sydney. These experiences not only  gave her the skills to launch a biotechnology startup, but also helped to shape a lasting bond with her partner and co-founder Dr. Iman Manavitehrani. Together, Maryam and Iman launched SDIP Innovations in 2018 with the intention of commercialising a novel bioresorbable scaffold material Iman had been working on. Now the company's CEO, Maryam is working from the QB3 Incubator in California to ensure their core technology fulfils its potential to revolutionise bone repair surgery.  Join us for an inspiring tale of determination and discovery.
