Congratulations to Shiva Akbarzadeh on her promotion to Adjunct Associate Professor!

Professor Wendy Brown, Head of Department of Surgery at Central Clinical School, writes:

Shiva Akbarzadeh obtained her PhD from the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, University of Melbourne in 2002. She has almost 20 years of experience in cell biology and signalling in a variety of systems. In 2009 she established the Skin Bioengineering Laboratory at the Victorian Adult Burns Service - Alfred Health, focusing on translational research in skin regeneration. She leads the team responsible for manufacturing Cultured Epithelial Autograft for cellular based therapy of major burns and research in developing novel skin substitutes for clinical application.

Shiva was part of the team that were recently awarded a MRFF grant to support their important work on third degree burn wound closure using engineered skin. See her video (3:00 mins) explaining the research.

I am sure you will agree this is very well deserved and wish Shiva all the best for more future success!

Kind regards
