NTU has given me the opportunity to create my own possibilities.
I see possibilities where the disciplines of chemistry, physics and bioscience intersect.
I SEE POSSIBILITIES WHERE THE DISCIPLINES OF CHEMISTRY, PHYSICS AND BIOSCIENCE INTERSECT.
These possibilities have led to an extension in the working life of antibiotics, allowed the development of new surfaces for tissue culture, and contributed towards the development of materials for dental and bone repair in both animals and people.
I’ve always been interested in science where fundamental disciplines overlap; where one science informs the other; where knowledge is shared; where there's a magical mix of ideas, methodologies, techniques and unknown possibilities. I guess I'm just not your usual researcher.
TELL US OF A FUTURE YOU’D LIKE TO CREATE AND WE’LL GIVE YOU THE RESOURCES TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN.
NTU HAS GIVEN ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE MY OWN POSSIBILITIES AND TO WORK ACROSS DISCIPLINES.
When I first started here 25 years ago, I developed and encouraged interdisciplinary collaboration – to work with and learn from amazing people outside my own field. Today at NTU this is the norm. NTU encourages academics to do this – to work together around themes that drive collaboration and generate ideas in new and exciting ways.
WHEN PEOPLE FIRST VISIT NTU THEY'RE SURPRISED BY THE FACILITIES, THEN BY THE CROSS-DISCIPLINARY COLLABORATION, AND FINALLY BY THE QUALITY OF THE RESEARCH WE DO HERE.
Much of our work is globally recognised as outstanding. We’re not a place that shouts about things. We’re a place that gets on and does things.
