Anjali has a PhD in biology, and a degree in Medical Technology, and is currently an Advance Queensland Industry Research Fellow. She is a strategic and a lateral thinking medical technologist, using her background to better inform applications in medical robotics.
Associate Professor Katie McMahon
Katie McMahon is the Medical Imaging, Biomechanics, and Robotics Technologies Program Leader in the Centre for Biomedical Technologies at QUT, and Deputy Director of the Herston Imaging Research Facility. She is a national and international expert in pushing the boundaries of magnetic resonance imaging application in clinical science. Her research focuses on understanding the neurobiology of language, learning and memory, and the genetic and environmental influences on brain structure and function.
Professor Yin Xiao
Yin Xiao is the Director of the Australia-China Centre for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (ACCTERM) and Professor in Bone and Tissue Engineering at QUT. He has more than 10 years clinical experience in dentistry and a PhD in matrix biology (UQ). He is a global expert in biomaterials, oral and maxillofacial regeneration, bone, and cartilage biology. His research spans biomaterials and tissue engineering, as well as the new field of materiobiology, which looks at the dynamic interactions between biomaterials and biological systems. He holds a number of honorary senior positions in several Universities, including Griffith University, Wuhan University, Sun Yat-sen University, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Guangzhou Medical University.
Associate Professor Michael Doran
Mike Doran is the Stem Cells and Tissue Engineering Program Leader in the Centre for Biomedical Technologies at QUT. He completed a BSc (Genetics) and BEng (Chemical) at the University of Alberta (Canada), and PhD (Biomedical Engineering) at the University of New South Wales. His research interests include the study of bone, bone marrow, cartilage, cancers that metastasise to the bone, and metaresearch. Mike is also a Consultant Scientist at the National Institutes of Health (NIH, Bethesda, USA), TRI/QUT Wellness Ambassador, and is on the Cure Cancer Australia Research Board.
Professor Prasad Yarlagadda
Professor Prasad Yarlagadda, OAM is the Medical Device Design and Manufacturing Program Leader in the Centre for Biomedical Technologies at QUT. He actively collaborates with surgeons and industry biomanufacturing, 3D printing and additive manufacturing to address various orthopaedic and cardiovascular problems. His recent work on fracture fixation and production of bactericidal surfaces on orthopaedic implants to minimize post-surgical infection received international attention and greatly enhanced quality of life in aged population. He is visiting professor at VIT University, Indian Institute Science, VRS Engineering College and other universities and editorial board member of 18 ISI listed journals.
