Research interests

Professor Fariba Dehghani's work in bioengineering research focuses on developing technologies for processing biomaterials, with particular emphasis on tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

"My research aims to develop sustainable, low-energy, benign processes for manufacturing bio-products and to reduce organic solvent consumption. For instance, currently I am looking into developing bio-inspired materials and technologies to engineer tissues and organs, and investigating whether these can translate to clinical outcomes. This involves novel materials and implant devices as well as compounds for the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease, viral infections, cancer, osteoporosis and a range of other health issues.

"My work focuses on synthesising biodegradable polymers, bioglasses, and hybrids with unique feature for tissue engineering. I also aim to develop materials for minimally invasive surgery and overcome current issues for injectable formulations including degradability, injectability and mechanical strength. Overcoming these will have a major impact on developing materials that can resolve many health issues, including sport injuries and bone defects. I am currently investigating applications of these new classes of biomaterials for drug delivery and cartilage and bone repair.

"Another example of my research is the use of nano- and micro-particles for targeted drug delivery - such as in the treatment of cancer. The use of such small particles as an avenue for drug delivery can improve bioavailability by enabling drugs to permeate cell walls, minimising necessary doses and side effects.

"My bioengineering research has resulted in developing a fermentation process that led to producing an oil rich in vitamin K, with greater bioavailability. The concentration of this compound is 25-fold higher than any commercially available food on the market. This oil can be used in the formulation of food products to reduce the risk of osteoporotic fractures and cardiovascular disease.

"I've been working in this field since 1998, and joined the University of Sydney in 2006. Working here provides a collegial environment where I can collaborate with other disciplines and internationally prominent research teams."
