Associate Professor Guozhen Liu has been recognised for breakthroughs in individualised treatment for autoimmune diseases and cancer.
We have developed an in vivo electrochemical immunosensor for simultaneous detection of multiple cytokines in Parkinson’s Disease mice model, which is published in Bioelectrochemistry. The link is as below.
Our recent study on quantification of cytokines in spinal cord in rats "In vivo intrathecal IL-1β quantification in rats: monitoring the molecular signals of neuropathic pain" has been published at Brain, Behavior, and Immunity. The web link is here: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.bbi.2020.04.009
This is a cross-disciplinary collaboration work with Prof Mark Hutchinson at University of Adelaide.
ID2 group leader A/Prof Guozhen Liu has successfully attracted $14k from AstraZeneca to organise the 1st International Conference of Sustainable Sensing Systems ( http://www.icsss2020.unsw.edu.au/). Congratulations!
Fei's another paper titled with "A method for in vivo quantification of cytokine IL-1β in the rat intrathecal space" has been accepted for publication in ACS Applied Bio Materials. Yuthor(s): Authors: Deng, Fei; Arman, Azim; Goldys, Ewa; Hutchinson, Mark; Liu, Guozhen. It is online now: https://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acsabm.9b00958

Another article on cytokine aptasensor by ID2 group entitled" Physical absorption vs covalent binding of graphene oxide on glassy carbon electrode towards a robust aptasensor for ratiometric electrochemical detection of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in serum" has been published in Electrochimica Acta.
Guozhen has won an award to attend Future Women Leaders Conference 2019 happening in 18-19 November at Monash University.
The study originated from Liu's ID2 group, Adaptive in vivo device for theranostics of inflammation： real-time monitoring of interferon-<gamma> and aspirin, has been accepted for publication in Acta Biomaterialia. It is an interdisciplinary collaboration work with Prof Xin Chen in XI'an Jiaotong University. This study is a symbolic achievement on development of an in vivo device for diagnosis and therapy towards the precision medicine. Congratulations to the team, well done!
The article is now available online at:
Dr Liu's application for promotion to the level of Associate Professor at UNSW is successful!.
A new PhD student Mahroo Baharfar joins ID2 this week. Welcome onboard! Mahroo will work on microfluidic chip for sweat biosensing.
Guozhen is awarded the UNSW-CAS Collaborative Research Bridging Grant of $50,000. This grant is to facilitate the collaboration between her team and Prof Zhang’s team at Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology, CAS to work on Intelligent AIE-DNA nanotrains for precision nanomedicine.
Dr Guozhen Liu has given a well-received oral talk on an adaptive in vivo device for real time monitoring of cytokines towards precision theranostics in inflammation, at 16 Sep at the 14th World Congress on Inflammation Sydney 2019, 15-19 Sep. Her talk is to share her interdisciplinary research on real-time cytokine sensing and cytokine triggered drug delivery with biologists, to impact the precision diagnosis and treatment of inflammation.
Fei's paper "Polymer brush based fluorescent immunosensor for direct monitoring of interleukin-1ß in rat blood" has been accepted to be published in Analyte and is featured as the Journal Front Cover.

Prof Nam-Trung Nguyen visited ID2 at 2 July. He has visited our lab and commented on the challenges which our PhD students meet in their project. Finally we have had a group discuss on how to integrate biosensors with microfluidic devices towards the precision diagnostics. Thank Prof Nguyen for passing his extensive knowledge on microfluidics to ID2 group.
ID2 group have a get-together today to celebrate Yi's and Moein's June birthday and end of month lab cleaning up. This is also to welcome two Taste-of-Research students to join ID2 from T2 2019.
Two Taste of Research students Kate and Alyne join our ID2 group to taste the flavour of doing research. They will work on projects of intelligent nanoparticles and microfluidic paper based analytical devices, respectively. Welcome to ID2!
