Personal profile

Biography

Professor of Pharmaceutical Biology, Theme Leader: Drug Delivery, Disposition and Dynamics, Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences.

Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Monash University (based at Monash Parkville Campus)

Research interests

  • Use of stem cells, and cells derived by differentiation of stem cells, in drug discovery.  
  • Differentiation of pluripotent stem cells to derive brain cells (particularly neurons and microglia)
  • Stem cell derived models of neurodegenerative diseases (Parkinsosn's and Alzheimer's diseases)
  • Design and performance of delivery systems for nucleic acid therapeutics (DNA and RNA).
  • Lipid-based delivery systems for oral delivery of poorly water-soluble drugs and oral peptides.

 

Monash teaching commitment

I have responsibility for teaching programs in our BPharm, new MPharm, and BPharm SCi degree programs.  As a member of the Faculty Executive I assist in allocation of staff workload across various units.

I teach into units involving  virology, biotechnology, formulations of small molecule drugs and biotech products, cancer biology and general methods in molecular biology.

I teach postgraduate students throughout the academic calendar year - currently I co-supervise 16 PhD students
