The MoU, signed by the director of MIME, Professor Jeffrey Rosenfeld AM, OBE, and Leidos Australia technical director Dan Brewer, will focus on the development of innovative technologies and solutions to address human health problems.

"It will foster the development of new technology and IT solutions for human health problems," said Professor Rosenfeld.

"University-industry collaboration is an important goal to create new opportunities for Australian innovation to reach the marketplace."

Brewer added, “Health is a key area for Leidos globally and as we continue to grow domestically, we will be looking to further develop our range of capabilities in this area."

The MoU will also see Leidos Australia and the MIME collaborate on future R&D with the initial contribution including the funding of a PhD research student.
