Dr Robert Utama is a research associate in Justin Gooding’s group at UNSW Sydney. His project focuses on the development of biocompatible, synthetic hydrogels for 3-dimensional in vitro cell culture applications. He is also currently working on the utilisation of 3D bioprinting technology for the high-throughput production of 3D in vitrocancer models.

Robert received his PhD in Engineering from UNSW Sydney at the Centre for Advanced Macromolecular Design (CAMD), where he developed a one-pot approach to produce loaded polymeric nanocapsules for drug delivery, utilising RAFT inverse miniemulsion polymerisation.
