My research integrates material science and biological paradigms in developing solutions for chronic diseases. Our group has developed next generation reservoir delivery vehicles with high payload capacity, programmable degradation profiles and inbuilt gradients of physical, chemotropic and protective cues which facilitate spatiotemporal localised sustained delivery of multiple biomolecules to target injury mechanisms at the molecular and cellular levels. The biomaterial platforms have been validated to act as inductive templates for constructive remodelling and as templates for the induction of de novo functional, site-appropriate, tissue formation. These platforms have been developed for neural, musculoskeletal and cardiovascular clinical targets with numerous other targets currently under development.
Potential research projects include, but are not limited to, the following subjects.
1. Develop a hydrogel system for treatment of ischemia (stroke, myocardial infarction)
2. Development of a glycosylated hydrogels for the treatment of spinal cord injury
