Research focus

Through the implementation of a unique interdisciplinary biomedical engineering research strategy, Professorial Fellow, Jeremy Crook, is innovating, leveraging and bridging Australia’s recognised strengths in materials science and engineering, and biomedical research. His team has developed an award-winning internationally recognised research program for advanced tissue engineering and electric medicine technologies (electroceuticals), applying new bio- and electro-material-based strategies(with additive manufacturing)to improve cell delivery and quality of engineered tissues, and bioelectronic devices for in vitro modelling and clinical application.
