Research Fellow in Bionanotechnology, University of Western Australia

I am very fortunate to be funded by the NHMRC to work on applications of nanotechnology to the improvement of outcomes following a burn injury. This work has 2 major aims, the first is to investigate ways we can heal an acute wound quickly to reduce long term scarring and the second major aim is to address ways in which we can modify the dense and fibrous nature of scar tissue to make it more analogous to the healthy tissue that it once was. Along with this work I am still heavily involved in projects investigating the targeted delivery of therapeutics for cancer treatments, work continuing from my PhD studies. I am an advocate for science in schools and really enjoy getting out to inspire the next generation of scientists about how exciting a career in scientific research really is.
