2012 ATSE Clunies Ross Award: Professor Stuart Crozier FTSE - Biochemical Engineering
Professor Stuart Crozier FTSE is currently Professor and Director of Biomedical Engineering at The University of Queensland. He has published more than 180 journal papers and holds 30 patents in the field of medical imaging. He has supervised more than 20 PhD students to graduation in the field. His main research and commercialisation contributions have been to the development of applications and engineering innovation in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Several of his innovations have been adopted by industry and around 70 per cent of all MRI systems in the world since 1997 contain technology that he co-invented. Stuart and his team have continued to develop innovations. One of the most recent are small and dedicated MRI systems for orthopaedic imaging, which have now been adopted by a multinational medical imaging company. New technology in image-guided cancer therapy and more accurate diagnostics for musculo-skeletal diseases and injuries are some of Professor Crozier’s current research directions in clinical applications. As well as being an ATSE Fellow, he is a Fellow of The Institute of Physics (UK). He holds a PhD and higher Doctorate (DEng) in Biomedical Engineering.
