Researcher biography

Dr Felicity Han is an early-career researcher. She completed her doctoral training at Prof Maree Smith's laboratory, a unique GLP-accredited biomedical discovery-translation and drug development facility, at The University of Queensland in 2015 in neuropharmacology and drug delivery. Her research program has generated new knowledge to address unmet intractable cancer-related pain by applying the latest advances in the field of nanotechnology to that of pain management based on her expertise in both the neuropharmacology and the drug delivery fields. She has a unique combination of expertise with technology such as Supercritical CO2 Micronization Technology, Microfluidic devices for producing drug-loaded nanoparticles on one side, as well as with chronic intrathecal catheter implantation in rats and establishment of rodent pain models, on the other. Dr Han also enjoys public service, such as treasurer for 9th The Queensland Chinese Association of Scientists and Engineers (QCASE).
