About this team member
Simon Corrie research interest is focused on developing nano-particle-based molecular sensors for monitoring biological molecules in real biological environments. The Nano-sensor Engineering Lab works on the design, synthesis, characterization and testing of both synthetic nano-particle scaffolds (e.g. organosilica materials) and novel biological reporters (e.g. antibody fragments). This requires an interdisciplinary approach, combining aspects of materials science, chemistry, and molecular biology to create the materials and then collaborate with Australian and international colleagues to test the materials in pre-clinical animal models with the ultimate aim of translation into human trials.
