In Australia, we love being part of the Asia-Pacific region, a diverse array of countries with fast-growing populations and economies, and excellent science. This is why we are so thrilled to be included in the ACS Sensor Science in Asia-Pacific (2018-2020) online edition. Dr Julia Walker's paper on ultrasound-monitored pH nanosensors was also recognised with an ACS Editor's Choice Award. We think that the combination of nanosensors or biosensors with biomedical imaging techniques is a fantastic opportunity to realise 3D, dynamic monitoring of biomarkers in real time. If you are looking for a challenging Honours, MPhil or PhD project with NEL and our collaborators, get in touch!
