Anton Middelberg简介:
Professor Middelberg is the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research and International) at the University of Queensland. He has held tenured academic positions at Cambridge University (Reader in Biological Engineering) and at Adelaide University, and a Fulbright Fellowship at UC Berkeley. As a Cambridge Don he reported directly to The University’s General Board and was a member of the Governing Body of Selwyn College and a Fellow of the Cambridge-MIT Institute. In 2003 he returned to Australia as a Federation Fellow of the Australian Research Council to progress his research into bio-inspired nanotechnology. His research into virus-like particle and nanoemulsion self-assembly has attracted more  than $10M in research funding, including from the Australian Research Council and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Professor Middelberg was awarded the 2010 Queensland Premier’s Fellowship (one per annum statewide) within the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology to progress his research at the nexus of biology and engineering. He has been named by Engineers Australia as one of the 100 most influential engineers in Australia, and has received a number of awards including the Brodie and Shedden-Uhde medals of the Institution of Engineers Australia. Professor Middelberg has published more than 200 refereed papers at the interface between biology and engineering, has patented multiple inventions, and serves in a number of editorial roles including as Editor-in-Chief of Chemical Engineering Science and as Associate Editor of Vaccine.
