Personal profile

Biography

Dr Nghia Truong is a Senior Scientist at ETH Zurich and an ARC DECRA Fellow at Monash University. He completed his bachelor and master degrees from Vietnam National University - Ho Chi Minh City (VNU-HCM) and then received his PhD from the University of Queensland, Australia. His current research interest focuses on engineering smart polymers and nanostructured materials for a better understanding into the interface of nanomaterials with biological systems (at ETH Zurich) and translating the knowledge of the bio-nano interactions to pharmaceutical sciences and biotechnology (at Monash University).
