Dr Peggy Chan obtained her PhD in 2007 from the Department of Chemical Engineering in University of New South Wales. After graduation, she worked as a research scientist at the Institute of Bioengineering & Nanotechnology (IBN) within A*Star Singapore. In Mar 2009, Peggy was awarded a lectureship to teach and continue her bionanotechnology research at Monash University’s Department of Chemical Engineering. In 2012, Peggy was awarded a senior research fellowship from RMIT University’s School of Applied Science. In Jan 2015, Peggy joined Swinburne University’s Department of Biomedical Engineering as a Lecturer.

Her research focuses on:

  • Micro-engineer tissue scaffolds
  • Development of microfluidic devices for biomaterial synthesis and for drug and gene delivery
  • Development of organs-on-chip systems
  • Development of miniaturized cell culture systems and micro-bioreactors
  • Synthesis of microfluidic biomaterials and photocrosslinkable biomaterials
  • Synthesis of injectable hydrogels and tissue scaffolds for tissue engineering
