Revolutionising clinical diagnostic techniques to enable personalised approaches to healthcare

Our new methodology aims to make a more personalised approach in health care financially viable. We are doing this through the development of portable and field deployable instrumentation for chemical analysis and bioassays. With a strength in electrophoretic separation techniques, methods are developed to allow for high resolution separations with good sensitivity. 

Research focuses on the development of the separation chemistry, new sampling techniques to allow for automated processing, the identification of components to construct new instruments and the evaluation of the methods for applications including therapeutic drug monitoring and bioprocess monitoring. In collaboration with Dr King and A/Prof Dickson, we also develop new platforms to study the neuronal response to trauma like traumatic brain injury.
