Trisha Ghosh specialises in Mesoporous Carbon Hollow Spheres modified at different carbonization temperature as an Innovative Therapeutic Delivery Platform

Nanocarrier systems are essential vehicles that shield the fragile protein molecule from premature denaturation. Ordered mesoporous carbon nanoparticles have some exceptional feature with innate hydrophobicity, makes it a very favourable choice of delivery system. Trisha's aim is to synthesize mesoporous carbon nanocarrier systems for drug delivery and investigate the influence of carbonization on its efficiency as a delivery system. Her work further extends in investigating the ROS generation of the nanocarrier systems along with its other novel applications for cancer therapy. 

Trisha Ghosh's academic journey began when she graduated from West Bengal University of Technology (WBUT) from Kolkata, India, with a Bachelor’s degree in Pharmacy (B. Pharm). During that time, she was awarded the Bronze Medal - For excellence in academic credentials in the field of “Pharmacy” commemorated by His Excellency Sri M. K. Narayanan, Honourable Governor of West Bengal (2011). Trisha was also very honoured to be awarded the "Atul Krishna Datta Memorial Award” for excellence in academic performance in the field of “Bachelor of Pharmacy” (2011).

She proceeded to advance her educational pursuit in Masters of Engineering (2011-2013) from the Department of Advanced Material Science and Engineering, Hanseo University, South Korea, where she was awarded the full scholarship (Tuition + Living) from the University Graduate School, specialising in nanomaterial synthesis and applications. After finishing her M. Eng., She continued her educational journey and got the opportunity to pursue my PhD at the very prestigious Australian Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN), the University of Queensland under the supervision of Professor Chengzhong (Michael) Yu. Trisha is also the proud recipient of UQ International Scholarship (Tuition+ Living) which has given her the financial support to achieve my PhD degree. She have also been an active member of AIBN Student Association (ASA) from 2014-2016 organizing numerous workshops and events in AIBN for two years in a row.
