Professor Zreiqat is a professor of biomedical engineering at The University of Sydney and Director of the Australian Research Centre for Innovative BioEngineering. Hala is a trailblazer in the field of biomaterials and tissue engineering. Her team invented new bioceramics implants with outstanding strength and biological properties and developed innovative technologies for 3D-printing these ceramics enabling personalized approaches to the repair and regeneration of large bone defects under load.

As a Fulbright Scholar, Professor Zreiqat will spend time at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the laboratory of Professor Robert Langer, a globally recognized pioneer, leader, and entrepreneur in the biomedical sciences. She will learn strategies for commercialising and translating medical research into life-changing products.
