Chelsea Thorn is a PhD Student under the supervision of Professor Clive Prestidge and Dr Nicky Thomas at the University of South Australia. She holds a Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) from the University of South Australia and is currently an Australian registered Pharmacist. Her research focus is based around improving the delivery of antimicrobial bio-macromolecules to treat biofilm-related infections. Biofilm bacteria are extremely tolerant to all antimicrobials, and currently, no effective treatments are available. Using nano-carrier delivery systems to deliver highly active bio-macromolecules, Chelsea aims to develop novel topical therapies to eradicate biofilm-related infections.
