Professor Justin Gooding
Chief Investigator, Node Leader, Sensors and Diagnostics Theme Leader
University of New South Wales


Justin is a professor of chemistry and Co-Director of the Australian Centre for NanoMedicine. His research group specialises in the molecule level modification of surfaces using self-assembled monolayers, biological molecules and nanomaterials to impart a desired functionality to that surface, aiming to:

  • Selectively detect analytes for biosensors and diagnostics
  • Influence biological processes to develop biomaterials and nanotherapeutics
  • Allow efficient electrical communication with biological molecules
  • Enable fundamental studies into electron transfer at surfaces
