Dr Michael Whittaker
Senior Research Fellow
Monash University


Dr Michael Whittaker is a Senior Researcher at the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (MIPS) and Project Leader within the ARC Centre of Excellence in Convergent Bio-Nano Science & Technology (CBNS). Previously he was senior researcher within the Centre, for Advanced Macromolecular Design (CAMD) and Australian Centre of Nanomedicine (ACN). His current work examines the translation of biological-like control of macromolecular synthesis to wholly synthetic polymer systems and the use of stimuli-responsive “smart” soft matter for nanomedicine. Applications include novel antibacterial materials, soft matter nanoparticles that communicate with cells to give improved therapeutic outcomes, nanomaterials for improved theranostics and “smart” nanomaterials for sub-cellular targeting.
