Biography

Dr Mark C Allenby is a Lecturer in the Biofabrication and Tissue Morphology Laboratory who holds an Advance Queensland Fellowship (2019-2022). Allenby received a PhD from Imperial College London on 11/2017 after an MSc in chemical engineering and prior undergraduate degrees in mathematics and chemistry at Pepperdine University.

Allenby is interested in coupling biomedical image analysis and tissue systems modelling (experimental and computational) to engineer improved medical treatments. Specific ongoing projects include:

  • 3D printed medical devices for vascular surgery
  • Bioreactor optimisation for tissue manufacturing
  • Algorithms for biomedical imaging diagnostics

Allenby is thankful to the following funding organisations:

  • 2020: Royal Brisbane & Women’s Hospital Foundation
  • 2019-2022: Advance Queensland Fellowship
  • 2019-2020: QUT IHBI Inter-Theme Collaboration Grant
  • 2019: QUT IHBI ECR Development Grant
  • 2018-2019: QUT SEF Strategic Links Grant
  • Metro North Hospitals and Health Services, Graphene Manufacturing Group, Konica Minolta, 3D Systems
