Keynote Address

Dr Simon Corrie, Monash University

Simon completed his undergraduate degree in chemical engineering and PhD in physical chemistry at the University of Queensland, before undertaking postdoctoral studies at the HPV Research Laboratory at the University of Washington, Seattle, USA. He completed an ARC DECRA Fellowship in Prof. Mark Kendall’s group at the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology at The University of Queensland. Simon is a chief investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence in Convergent BioNano Science and Technology. His research interests lie in developing nanoparticles and related biomaterials for applications in biosensing, bioassays and medical devices. Simon joined the Chemical Engineering Department as a Senior Lecturer in February 2016. He worked in a joint team study which resulted in a world-first ability to detect positive COVID-19 cases using blood samples in about 20 minutes, and identify whether someone has contracted the virus.
