Chiing completed her Master of Applied Science (Chemistry) at the University of Tasmania.
Her current research interest involves the application of microfluidic devices in neurobiology. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity in children and young adults. Chiing’s PhD work focuses on designing and fabricating novel microfluidic devices to study TBI in vitro to enhance the understanding of degenerative changes to the nervous system following injury. As part of this work, the devices will be used for studying the axonal alterations after injury including testing of the effect of potential therapeutic agents on axonal regeneration and repair following injury.
