Research Fellow


I am Nguyen Duc Viet, from Viet Nam. As a physics major, I obtained my BSc. from the Vietnam National University in 2008 and PhD from the National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2006 under Prof. Xiang-Yang Liu Biophysics & Micro/nanostructures lab. After that, I did my postdoc in Prof. Theo Kofidis Myocardial Restoration Lab in NUS Currently, I am working on transdermal delivery systems, e.g., hydrogels, organogels, microneedles and 3D printing applications in drug delivery & medical devices.

Hi, my name is Seng Han Lim. Working in a hospital for the past ~3 years made me determine to research on new drug delivery system that is able to deliver drugs accurately, efficiently and yet, does not cause an increased pill burden for the patient. One way is through the transdermal route which posts a number of challenges at this stage of technology. Hopefully, with my research in transdermal drug delivery, it will be able to benefit many patients out there who have difficulties swallowing medications or those with a fear of injection. (




Hi, my name is Justin Tan and I am a graduate of Pharmacy (Class of 2014) from the National University of Singapore. My research work studies the effects of various herbal extracts on hair follicular regeneration and toxicity and also the development of a topical delivery system for alopecia therapy. I enjoy computer/ video games, hanging out with family and friends in my free time and occasionally, watch the television. I will be looking forward to making contributions towards the advancements of drug discovery and delivery. (




Hi, my name is Michelle Bian, a bioengineering major, graduated from the Nanjing Normal University in 2017. I enrolled in Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Sydney for my graduate study in 2018. My research topic is on transdermal drug delivery by using micro-structured biomaterials. I am willing to make efforts to this topic and hope that patients who suffer can be benefit from my research findings. At the same time, I am really excited to study in a foreign country and enjoy my life in the University of Sydney.( )
