As a pioneering biomaterials and tissue engineer Professor Hala Zreiqat won the 2018 NSW Premier's Award for Woman of the Year.
Her research work involves the development of novel engineered materials such as "ceramics" and 3D-printed platforms which can be used in orthopaedic, dental, and maxillofacial surgery. She has established national and international industry collaborations to translate her discoveries into approved medical devices. Her pioneering development of innovative biomaterials for tissue regeneration has led to one awarded (US) and 7 provisional patents, and several collaborations with inter/national industry partners.
Hala has also been described as a trailblazer in championing opportunities for women in the field, becoming the first female president of the Australian and New Zealand Orthopaedic Research Society.
She was also the first person in NSW to receive a prestigious Radcliffe Fellowship from Harvard University where she founded an international network called IDEAL Society (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Action Leadership) at Harvard University (2017-); dedicated to improving opportunities for women around the world.
Prof. Zreiqat’s overall objective is to advance collaborative research ventures and build educational and industry linkages nationally and internationally in the field of musculoskeletal disorders and biomaterials research.
