About Dr John Forsythe
Dr John Forsythe is an Associate Professor in the Department of Materials Science and
Engineering at Monash University.
His main area of research focuses on the synthesis and modification of novel polymer
biomaterials for use in tissue engineering and other biomaterials research.
In his work Dr Forsythe has explored a wide range of polymer biomaterial systems, including:
The manufacture of injectable or nanofibrous scaffolds which assist in the repair of
damaged neural pathways in the brain
The development of anti-bacterial surface coatings and wound dressings
Injectable matrices for cartilage repair
Photoreponsive biopolymers for 3D cell culture and tissue engineering
Electroactive biomaterials for new generation electrode devices
