Description

NSW Science & Research Breakfast Seminar

Professor Justin Gooding, Scientia Professor in the School of Chemistry at UNSW Sydney and founding co-director of the Australian Centre for NanoMedicine, presents:

‘How Sensors are Changing our World’

NSW researchers are pushing the frontiers of 'smart sensor' technologies which are changing our world.

The State Government has sought to harness our tremendous R&D strength in this exciting field by investing almost $2 million in the university-led NSW Smart Sensing Network (NSSN).

NSSN will bring together experts in chemistry, physics, nanotechnology and ICT to craft innovative solutions to complex challenges in agriculture, the environment, health, industry and national security. And the potential social and economic benefits for NSW are enormous!

The Network is headed up by two of the state's most eminent researchers: The University of Sydney's Professor Ben Eggleton and UNSW Sydney's Scientia Professor Justin Gooding.

Gooding currently leads a 40-strong research team interested in surface modification and nanotechnology for biosensors, biomaterials, electron transfer and medical applications.

Scientia Professor Justin Gooding will talk about his team's groundbreaking research and highlight the Network's flagship projects when he presents: 'How Sensors are Changing our World'

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Scientist Professor Justin Gooding

Scientia Professor Justin Gooding graduated with Bachelor of Science (Hons) from the University of Melbourne before spending two years working for ICI Research. He then returned to University obtaining a Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Oxford and received post-doctoral training at the Institute of Biotechnology at Cambridge.

He returned to Australia in 1997 as a Vice-Chancellor's Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of New South Wales. He was promoted to Scientia Professor in 2011, the highest award for research performance given by UNSW.

Gooding has won many accolades over the years, including a NSW Young Tall Poppy award (2004), the RACI Lloyd Smythe Medal for Analytical Chemistry (2007), Eureka Prize for Scientific Research (2009), the RACI 2011 H.G. Smith Medal for contributions to chemistry, a NSW Science & Engineering Award (2013), the 2016 Faraday Medal of the Royal Society of Chemistry, and the 2016 Biosensors and Bioelectronics Award.

He was elected a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science in 2016 and is an ARC Australian Laureate Fellow. In 2017, Gooding was honoured by the Royal Society of NSW with its Walter Burfitt Prize and Archibald Liversidge Medal, and collected another Eureka Prize for Outstanding Mentor to Young Researchers.
