University of South Australia
Dr. Kopecki is a past NHMRC ECR Fellow, inaugural Future Industries Institute (FII) Foundation Fellow, and a current Mid-Career Fellow in Childhood Wound Infections at UniSA. His research integrates cell therapy and biomaterials to develop frontier technologies for improved wound care. His translational research integrates industry partners to develop a therapy with broad implications for millions of Australians suffering from impaired healing and wound infection. Dr. Kopecki’s transdisciplinary approaches to therapy development using preclinical models of acute and biofilm wound infection provide a platform for testing novel wound dressings and pharmacological and material delivery systems hence providing translational outcomes and a clear pathway towards clinical trials.
