Probing Biosystems v3
[Music plays and the CSIRO logo appears]
[Image changes and text appears: Probing Biosystems, A revolution in healthcare]
[Image appears of a life expectancy graph showing life expectancy growing from 30 to 80 years]
Narrator: In the 20th Century life expectancy doubled.
[Image shows the graph going to 160 years and text appears: 160 years?]
If we want to double it again we’ll need to catch health problems
[Image changes to show the screen covered with yellow dots and a black dot and target symbol appears in the centre of the screen]
long before they appear.
[Image changes to show the CSIRO logo and then the camera zooms out and text appears beneath the logo: Probing Biosystems]
That’s why at CSIRO we are investing millions in Probing Biosystems.
[Image changes to show an animation image of a person running with connectivity dots at points throughout the body and then the animation image of the person moves faster and faster]
An ambitious effort to measure the human body in real time to improve health
[Text appears: Longer Better Lives]
for longer and better lives.
[Music plays and the image changes to show two animation image bike riders and sensor points are highlighted on their bodies]
We’re working on wearable and implantable sensors to detect health problems early
[Image moves to the left and an animation image of a person with a stethoscope appears on the right-hand side of the screen]
and send live updates to your Doctor.
[Music plays and the image changes to show an outline adult holding a breath test device up to a child and then a tick appears above the child and the child jumps up and down]
A breath test to predict asthma attacks hours before they happen
[Image changes to show a graph tracking ageing and an animation image of an elderly male pops up on the graph doing a saliva test and text appears: Consult Doctor]
and a better way to track ageing using new routine saliva tests instead of infrequent blood tests to collect more and better data.
[Image changes to show an animation image of test tubes, a mouse and a microscope and then the image of the mouse disappears and four petri dishes appear]
We’re developing new technology to replace animal testing
[Camera zooms in on the petri dishes and a brain and a gut appear in two of the petri dishes]
with lab grown organoids like a tiny brain and a tiny gut
[Image shows a tablet entering the brain and then the gut and a tick appearing above the brain and the gut]
for faster more accurate drug trials that bring innovations to market sooner.
[Image changes to show an outline head with a brain inside and then the camera zooms out to show the whole person and a laptop and a doctor appear to the left of the person]
And we’re creating new treatments like a gel that helps to monitor brain tumours after surgery
[Camera zooms in on the laptop and the person’s head and waves appear between the laptop and the person’s head]
and releases personalised medicine by a remote control.
[Image changes to show an outline image of a person made up of dots and then the image moves to the left and an outline image of a hen appears to the right]
Information will be keyed to making humans and the animals we depend on healthier in the 21st Century
[Image changes to show a circle which enlarges and text appears inside: Probing Biosystems]
and Probing Biosystems will deliver data
[Image changes to show an animation image of a runner running from the left to the right of the screen]
as we strive to improve life quality
[Image moves to the left and a birthday cake with “100” on the top of it and a group of people cheering appears on the right-hand side of the screen]
together with life expectancy.
[Image then reduces in size to fit inside a circle and five other circles appear rotating around a central circle and text headings appear inside the circles: Future Science Platforms, Probing Biosystems, Synthetic Biology, Deep Earth Imaging, Digiscape, Environomics, Active Integrated Matter]
It’s all part of CSIRO’s future science platforms. A multi-year, multi-disciplinary investment in our collective future.
