Personal profile

Profile

Dr. Annemarie Nadort is an NHMRC Early Career Research Fellow at Macquarie University, Department of Physics and Astronomy, and Associate Investigator of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Nanoscale Biophotonics. She completed her Joint-PhD degree in physics/biomedical engineering from the University of Amsterdam and Macquarie University in Sydney in September 2015. Her work is centered around translational biophotonics, which means that she wants to use the properties of light and its interactions with biological tissues to improve the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of diseases. The application of light has tremendous potential in healthcare, because it is safe, cheap, fast, and portable.

Research interests

My current research interests are focused on brain tumour detection and treatment, using techniques from the biophotonics and tissue engineering fields. Specifically, I am interested in 1) fluorescence-guided surgery of brain cancer, 2) tissue engineering models of brain cancer to develop improved treatment and detection methods, 3) quantify and image blood flow velocity non-invasively, microcirculation imaging and laser speckle flowmetery, 4) characterization and application of photoluminescent nanoparticles in the biomedical sciences

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
