5th Nanomaterials Webinar

Novel Nanomaterials for Applications in Biomedicine and Beyond

I am pleased to welcome you to the webinar on “Novel Nanomaterials for Applications in Biomedicine and Beyond”.

Nanomaterials and nanotechnology continue to revolutionize everyday life by creating materials with unique properties and technologies that were unconceivable until just few decades ago.

This webinar will present three talks by leading established researchers in the field dealing with various aspects of nanotechnology and its application.

The research of Associate Professor Abel Santos from the University of Adelaide is focused on a process known as anodisation, which he uses as a nanofabrication approach to create novel photonic crystal, plasmonic, and hybrid structures with precisely engineered properties to control light–matter interactions at the nanoscale. His research has led to many interesting applications in areas of optical and biosensing, chemosensing systems, and photocatalysis for green energy generation and environmental remediation.

Dr. Vi Khanh Truong from Flinders University will present his research published in leading journals, including Nature Materials and Nature Communications, on development of innovative antibacterial technologies that are inspired by Nature. He has also developed novel liquid metal nanoparticles that have the potential to become a game changing tool to fight antibiotic resistant pathogens.

The third talk will be from myself. I am currently a Matthew Flinders Professor and a Professor of Biomedical Nanotechnology at the College of Medicine and Public Health of Flinders University. In my talk, I will discuss various nanoengineered surfaces developed by means of plasma techniques including antibacterial coatings, cell guidance surfaces, drug delivery vehicles and diagnostic devices. I will also give a glimpse of how we use plasma nanoengineering to solve problems in areas different than medicine such as in environmental science and winemaking.

I believe that you will enjoy the webinar.

DETAILS
Bio
Professor Vasilev is currently a Matthew Flinders Professor and a Professor of Biomedical Nanotechnology in the College of Medicine and Public Health at Flinders University. Prior to taking a position at Flinders University in January 2022, Professor Vasilev has built and led at The University of South Australia (UniSA) a highly productive team, currently consisting of more than 20 postdocs and PhD students (size of a Center). His team is well connected having deep collaborative networks within Australia and internationally, and is strongly engaged with industry, end users, government agencies and community. Professor Vasilev has attracted in excess of 25M dollars in research funding from Government competitive grants and Industry, published more than 260 papers and has been awarded several prestigious Research Fellowships from ARC, NHMRC and the Humboldt Foundation, and other awards such as the John A. Brodie Medal for achievements in Chemical Engineering in 2016, and the election of a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC) in 2017. His contribution to UniSA has been recognized by several awards including the UniSA Research Excellence Award in the Mid-Career category (2018), and the Division of ITEE Excellence Award for Leadership in Research (2018), and the UniSA Interdisciplinary Award (2019) for his work across disciplines.

DETAILS
Bio
I received my BEng (Chemical, Honours) in 2005 by the Jaume I University (Spain), and my MEng and PhD (Electronic, Magna Cum Laude) by the Rovira i Virgili University (Spain) in 2007 and 2011, respectively. Currently, I am Associate Professor at The University of Adelaide’s School of Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials, where I teach and lead a multidisciplinary research team. My research has a strong focus on translational science, and I have established research linkages with both universities and industry to expand my expertise across discipline boundaries. My work follows three complementary streams. The first focuses on basic research on anodisation, in which I use my expertise in this nanofabrication approach to create novel photonic crystal, plasmonic, and hybrid structures with precisely engineered properties to control light–matter interactions at the nanoscale. This research stream has led to two applied streams, the second in optical sensing and biosensing, and surface chemistry engineering to develop advanced optical chemo- and biosensing systems, and the third in photocatalysis for green energy generation and environmental remediation. I have published ~110 research articles and received ~4,000 cites, with an h-index of 40.

Bio
Dr. Vi Khanh Truong is currently Lecturer (Medical Biotechnology) in Flinders University. In the past he was recipient of RMIT Vice Chancellor's Postdoctoral Research Fellow and Fulbright Scholar. Dr. Truong obtained his Ph.D. in Nanobiotechnology in 2012 from Swinburne University of Technology, Australia. He is an emerging young researcher in antimicrobial technology both nationally and internationally. He has developed several revolutionary approaches to protect medical devices and other surfaces from bacterial colorization. He was a key player in the team which developed biomimetic surfaces containing sharp nanostructures that can mechanically kill bacterial upon contact. More recently, he has pioneered the field of liquid metals based antibacterial technologies. This is now a growing and very promising research direction with high probability of an impact. His papers published in high impact journals such as Nature Materials, Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, ACS Nano, amongst others. Khanh’s 110+ publications have been cited more than 6000 times (more than 50 citations per paper), with H index=35. In his current research, he further investigates the interactions between microbial cellular structures and nanomaterials to understand “antimicrobial resistance” and develop “next‐generation antimicrobial strategies”.
