Flinders University

Nico drives research on the development of new nanostructured materials with superior properties for applications in biosensors, biochips, biomaterials, tissue engineering and drug delivery – basically he develops new materials and devices designed to improve human health. His laboratory has successfully accomplished groundbreaking collaborative research with neuroscientists at the Flinders Medical Centre (FMC) investigating the aggregation of proteins responsible for Parkinson’s disease. 
Nico believes that in order to teach students science, it is essential to convey to them that science can be many things, but most importantly it is challenging while being fun.
