Wallace, Gordon G. Professor

Director of Intelligent Polymer Research Institute

  • Executive Research Director - ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science
  • Director - ANFF Materials Node
  • Director - TRICEP

Overview


Distinguished Professor Gordon Wallace, an esteemed innovator and educator is a scientist at the forefront of health technologies, where medical devices complement the body’s own systems to treat disease and repair injuries. An example of this is the ‘Biopen’, used by surgeons to directly print healing cells into a patient’s body during procedures, like knee surgery. With research interests in organic conductors, nanomaterials and electrochemical probe methods of analysis in intelligent polymer systems, his extensive scientific contributions has broken new ground in every aspect of electromaterials research; academic performance and outcomes, training the next generation of researchers, and facilities development. These contributions to the enhancement of Australian materials research has led to a number of high accolades for Gordon including being awarded an ARC Laureate Fellowship (2011) and the Eureka prize for leadership in Innovation and Science (2016), being named NSW Scientist of the Year (2017), and appointed an Officer in the General Division of the Order of Australia (2017). Professor Wallace is Executive Research Director of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science based at UOW; Director of UOW’s Intelligent Polymer Research Institute; and Director of the Australian National Fabrication Facility – Materials Node.
