Who We Are
Principal Investigator (Singapore)
Mary Chan-Park Bee Eng
PhD, NTU Chemical and Biomedical Engineering, Centre for Antimicrobial Bioengineering
Professor Mary Chan obtained her B.Eng (Chem) from the National University of Singapore in 1986 and earned her Ph.D. in Polymer Chemistry from MIT in 1993. Prior to joining NTU in 2001, she worked in the chemical industry. She was formerly a senior technical manager in Sipix Imaging (CA, USA) working on Epaper development. Pr Chan is an elected fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biomedical Engineering. She is also on the Editorial Board of three international and highly reputed journals: (i) Journal of Biomedical Materials Research: Part A (ii) American Chemical Society Applied Materials and Interfaces and (iii) Polymers for Advanced Technologies.
Her research groups at the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering and the Centre for Antimicrobial Engineering focus of the development of antimicrobial polymers and nanomaterials for the treatment of bacterial infections.
Polymer applications in biotechnology and nanotechnology
Antimicrobial polymers and hydrogels
Carbon nanotubes and graphene dispersion and sorting
Printed electronics – surface patterning and modification
AMR IRG projects are in collaboration with the Hammond Lab and include the development of antimicrobial polymers that can be incorporated into nanoparticle drug-carrier systems for the disruption and eradication of biofilm-associated infections.
