June 2022 Phan was awarded the The GROW Program (Early Career Academic Grants) and the Open-Access Publishing Award (OAPA) for his research on flexible electronics for healthcare applications.
April 2022 The Phan lab was granted the Collaborative Research Infrastructure Scheme Fund ($50k + matching fund) to purchase a Keysight B1500A semiconductor parameter analyzer. This piece of equipment will boost our research at MME, UNSW in a close collaboration with GSBmE and EET.
February 2022 Dr. Phan will join the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (MME), The University of New South Wales, Sydney (UNSW) from 1st March, 2022. We welcome outstanding Ph.D. candidates to apply to our group to develop advanced materials, electronics and sensors for biomedical applications.
Dr. Phan and colleagues successfully organised the 2nd Online Conference on Nanomaterials & Electronics for Wearable, Implantable DEvices & Applications (NEWIDEA 2021) that helps connecting the Australian research community in Biomedical Engineering with world leading scientist in the field, including Prof. John A. Rogers (Northwester), Prof. Zhenan Bao (Stanford), Prof. Steven Prawer (UMelbourne) and many others.
Dr. Phan joins the Editorial Board of Scientific Reports, a Q1 journal published by Springer Nature.
Dr. Phan and colleagues successfully organised the 2nd Griffith University ECR Cross-Institute Symposium on 5th November. The symposium brought together Early Career Researchers (PhD and up to 10 year post PhD) to network and share research and ideas on biomedical engineering. [Link]
From 1 Oct, Dr. Phan will partly work at the University of Queensland as a visiting scholar (at the Yamauchi resarch group) to develop mesoporous nanoelectronics for physical sensors and health care applications.
Griffith Spotlights – research for a brighter future. Integrated Microelectronic Platform for Advanced Health Care and Therapy Spotlight is featured on Griffith News. The vision of this Spotlight is to quantify and interpret human movement to unlock effective rehabilitation and injury prevention. [Link]
A/Prof. David Garrett (ARC Future Fellow) from RMIT University delivered an invited talk to QMNC's March Webinar. Prof. Garrett provided a snapshot on his work on neuron-electronic interfaces using a wide range of materials and architecture from diamond, graphene, to carbon fibers. His devices show promising potentials for bio implantation applications including restoring vision (bionic eyes), regaining the sense of sound (cochlea implant), and decoding neural activities (brain-machine interface). What a fantastic talk and many thanks, Dave! [Link for abstract]
Dr. Phan will lead a new research program (Griffith Spotlight) entitled "Integrated Microelectronic Platform for Advanced health-Care and Therapy - IMPACT" together with Dr. Claudio Pizzolato from Menzies Health Institute. The program will fund two full time research associates (one in Phan's lab and one in Pizzolato's lab) to develop wearable devices and data analysis algorithms for personal health care applications. Phan is also a CI of another project funded this round and led by Prof. Paulo De Souza.
Research at Phan's lab featured in the Australia's most popular newspapers such as Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Brisbane Times, and Western Australia Today.
