Field of research: Medical Biotechnology Diagnostics (incl. Biosensors)
Stephen Parker completed a bachelor of Nanotechnology from UNSW in 2010 before undertaking a PhD in the Biosensors and Biointerfaces research group and the Australian Centre for Nanomedicine within the School of Chemistry at UNSW. His project focused on developing a technique to isolate individual diseased cells without compromising their integrity. Throughout his doctoral thesis, he was the recipient of the AINSE postgraduate research award, as well as being a Paddon-Row and Royal Society of NSW scholar. Since then, he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate within the Biosensors and Biointerfaces research group at UNSW continuing to develop a single-cell isolation device to a commercially-available product.
He now moved on to works as an Associate at Partners in Performance in Sydney.
