Associate Professor Kathryn Fairfull-Smith
Discipline Leader - Molecular Design and SynthesisAssociate Professor Kathryn Fairfull-Smith is an an ARC Future Fellow and recipient of a 2017 Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in research.
Her work primarily focuses on using organic synthesis to build molecules or functionalise surfaces and polymers, for applications including drug delivery and imaging.
Associate Professor Travis Klein
Discipline Leader - Biomedical Engineering and Medical PhysicsAssociate Professor Travis Klein heads the Cartilage Regeneration Laboratory and the Injury Prevention and Trauma Management Theme at the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation. His ultimate aim is to help develop long-term regenerative therapies for treating cartilage defects, including osteoarthritis.
Dr Jennifer MacLeod
Discipline Leader - NanoscienceJennifer MacLeod studies the behaviour and properties of molecules on surfaces, focusing on how their chemical and electronic structures can be changed through on-surface reactions. Her experiments lay the groundwork for creating new materials for next-generation electronics and sensors.
