Research highlight

Our 3D-printed solution to tackle low back pain, was showed up in UTS Research website. Dr Javad Tavakoli will create an exact replica of a real human disc by mapping the organisation of elastic fibres across the IVD. He will then analyse and characterise a series of biomaterials that can be used to produce the model using 3D printing (Read more ...).

Scientific Reports

Read our interesting article, published in Scientific Reports, reflecting the adverse biological impact of orthopaedic wear debris currently limits the long-term safety of human joint replacement devices (Read More ...).


In collaboration with our colleagues at Flinders University we developed a new method, published at Mater Chem Fronts, for preparation of a highly fluorescent nanoprob with potential application for biosensing. Very excited! (Read more ...)


Excellent talk by Prof Joanne Tipper in Academic Journeys Webinar: "How on earth did I end up in Australia?” What a mentor! Thanks Joanne for sharing your research journey with us.

New publication

Congratulation to the team for performing a high caliber research reporting the ultrastructural organization of elastic fibers in the nucleus pulposus of the intervertebral disc using ovine model. The first study revealing the elastic fibers structure in the nucleus at the micro-level (Read more ...)
