Scientia Professor Justin Gooding is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science and is currently an ARC Australian Laureate Fellow and the co-director of the Australian Centre for NanoMedicine. He is also editor-in-chief of the journal ACS Sensors. He graduated with a B.Sc. (Hons) from Melbourne University before spending two years working for ICI Research on explosives. He then returned to University obtaining a D.Phil. from the University of Oxford and received post-doctoral training at the Institute of Biotechnology in Cambridge University. He returned to Australia in 1997 as a Vice-Chancellor’s Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). He was promoted to full professor in 2006. He was one of the recipients of a 2004 NSW Young Tall Poppy award, a 2005 Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship, the 2007 RACI Lloyd Smythe Medal for Analytical Chemistry, the 2009 Eureka Prize for Scientific Research, the RACI 2011 H.G. Smith Medal for contributions to chemistry, the 2012 RACI R.H. Stokes Medal for electrochemical research, the 2012 Royal Society of Chemistry Australasian Lecturer, the 2013 NSW Science and Engineering Award for Emerging Research and the 2016 Faraday Medal of the Royal Society of Chemistry Electrochemistry Division. He leads a research team of 50 researchers interested in surface modification and nanotechnology for biosensors, biomaterials, electron transfer and medical applications.
Dr. Conor Hogan has a strong international reputation for his work in the areas of electrochemistry and sensor technology with a particular focus on electrochemiluminescence detection. His research focuses on the interaction of molecules with electricity and light and is driven by applications in the field of chemical and bio-sensors. He completed his PhD in Chemistry at Dublin City University in Ireland in 2000 and following several years of postdoctoral research in Ireland (under Prof. Robert Forster) and Australia (under Prof. Alan Bond) was appointed as a lecturer in the Department of Chemistry at La Trobe in 2003. In 2009 he was made a senior lecturer in analytical chemistry at La Trobe and has been an Associate professor since 2016. He is a member of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute where he was recently elected a Fellow (FRACI) in recognition of his contribution to the chemical sciences. He is active in particular within the electrochemical and analytical divisions of the RACI. He was chair of the Electrochemical Division of the RACI from 2011 to 2013 and he is currently Australian regional representative for the international society of electrochemistry (ISE). He is also a member of the Electrochemical Society (ECS) and the American Chemical society (ACS) and was recently elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC). He is the author of more than 60 peer reviewed papers which have attracted over 1500 citations. His H-Index is 23.
