Anthony P Raphael
Currently I have a joint appointment at Harvard Medical School, Wellman Centre for Photomedicine, Massachusetts General Hospital, and The University of Queensland. I am based in Boston.
Since the start of my PhD in 2008 and following its award in 2012, I have consistently contributed to the field of biomedical engineering and topical drug delivery through high impact publications and patents. My research focus at the Dermatology Research Centre is the development of novel technologies for enhanced treatment of skin disease. This has resulted in multiple papers and patents, leading to awards at national/international conferences, an early career research grant and Australia's prestigious NHMRC Early Career Fellowship.
Currently my professional pathway has been on the focus of micro-devices for topical drug delivery based on a biological, immunological and biophysical understanding of the skin. To further develop my skill set I began a joint research position at Assoc. Prof. Charles Lin’s Group at Harvard Medical School, Wellman Centre for Photomedicine, Massachusetts General Hospital. My personal goals of the projects are to develop my expertise in noninvasive imaging, biomedical optics and single cell diagnostics. The appointment will complement my current career path by strengthening my biomedical engineering expertise and furthering my fundamental knowledge of cell interaction and characterisation.
