Trioda Wilingi, a spin-out from the University of Queensland, is developing innovative medical gels from cellulose nanofibres extracted from spinifex grass harvested in north-west Queensland

The company is majority owned by Indigenous Australians and will commercialise patented technology developed with the help of ANFF Queensland. The Traditional Owners will have an ongoing role in the harvesting and early-stage processing of the grass, creating jobs at Camooweal and other remote communities in northern Australia.

The company will focus on developing medical gels with many potential applications, including osteoarthritis, drug delivery and cosmetic treatments.
