The NEL Team
Since starting the NEL in Feb 2016, our team has grown to include 6 PhD students, including 2 students based at UQ.
PhD student (Corrie, Thurecht (UQ))
Kye is a chemist developing silica nanoparticles for applications in real-time molecular sensing. He also uses his chemistry prowess to make some of the most mouthwatering cakes......
PhD Student (Corrie, Jones (UQ), MAHLER (UQ))
Jiaul is a biochemist focused on engineered antibody fragments for real-time protein detection. He'd like to see the Australian cricket team play Bangladesh in a test series again.....
MD/PHD student (thurecht (UQ), corrie)
Daniel is a medical student in the UQ/Ochsner cohort, starting an intercalated PhD project in January 2016, with Kris Thurecht (UQ) and Simon Corrie. His project will focus on understanding how nanoparticles behave in cerebrospinal fluid and brain tissue. He will be busy.... but fashionable
PhD student (Grøndahl (UQ), corrie)
Imanda started her PhD in 2016 with Lisbeth Grøndahl (UQ) and Simon Corrie on rapid and equipment-free protein detection based on immunodiffusion assays. A photo is coming - but for now she is the person on the rock wall that we can't quite see!
PhD student (Corrie)
Julia started her PhD in August 2016 with to work on novel signal transduction approaches for in vivo nanosensors. She brings a unique perspective to the group, with her background in both chemistry and architecture.
PhD student (Corrie, Traven)
Vidhishri started her PhD in August 2016 to start a new collaboration between NEL and Ana Traven's Fungal Pathogen lab at Monash. She is currently investigating how differences in nanoparticle properties (size, shape, coatings) affect interactions with fungal pathogens.
