INL Colloquium with Professor Wojciech Chrzanowski

September 20, 2022

Join us for the upcoming free INL Colloquium with Professor Wojciech Chrzanowski “Nano for nano: Advanced nanoscale characterisation and organ-on-a-chip technology for the development of the next generation nanomedicines’“which will take place next Tuesday, 27 September 2022, at INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory.

Professor Wojciech Chrzanowski is the Head of the Nano-medicine and Nano-Bio-Characterisation laboratory in the Faculty of Medicine and Health. He is a biomedical engineer who translates the science of nanoparticles and bio-characterisation at the nanoscale to human applications.

His work addresses a pressing need for effective nanotechnologies that regulate cells to promote desired tissue repair. Wojciech laboratory pioneers the use of nanoscale characterisation techniques to understand the interactions of nanoparticles with biological systems. To this end, he develops solutions to determine the safety of nano-materials by measuring their effects in different environments. From there, he learns to design less harmful nano-materials to keep people and the environment safe.

Wojciech’s contribution to the field is exemplified by over 200 peer-reviewed publications, six patents, and over 70 invited talks and seminars. He is a recipient of 16 prizes and awards for his work including the 2019 Barry Inglis Medal from the National Measurement Institute, the 2018 Vice Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Research and Education, and the 2018 Outstanding Paper Award from the Royal Society of Chemistry. His proven ability to lead a translational research program to fruitful completion was recognized by his award of a place in the 2019 SPARK Accelerating Australia program to commercialise his team’s aerosol device for EV delivery to lungs. In addition to academia, he successfully established research programs in the industry, and he leads a research program in nanotechnology for non-invasive medicine.

In addition, he co-leads an Australian arm of the Horizon2020 international program Shaping Innovative Products for Sustainable Tissue Engineering Strategies – SHIFT.

This workshop is being promoted under the SiNfONiA project. It’s main goal is to boost RTD activities in the nanosafety arena and strengthen the research and innovation potential of INL.
