Hien Duong

hienHien was awarded a highly competitive Endeavour Postgraduate Scholarship and joined Centre of Advanced Macromolecular Design (CAMD) in 2007 for her PhD study.  After completing her PhD in March 2011, she commenced her postdoctoral academic career in Australian Centre for NanoMedicine (established by UNSW in 2011). In November 2014, she joined the Key Centre for Polymers and Colloids, School of Chemistry, the University of Sydney, working on an ARC linkage grant with Dulux Australia. Her research area is focused on cutting-edge research interdisciplinary approach of converging nano- and medical research. Her research area includes polymer synthesis, fabrication and characterization of biocompatible organic, inorganic and hybrid nanomaterials for drug delivery. She has extensive experience in understanding the interface between polymer synthesis and biomedical science.  She is also interested in the development of powerful fluorescence microscopic techniques such as Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Microscopy (FLIM) to monitor the dynamics of encapsulated drug in the nanoparticles and the released drug in the live cells.
