Emma Wilson from the RMIT University node of the Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics has recently had her scholarship upgraded to a Vice-Chancellor’s PhD Scholarship which is the most prestigious scholarship available at RMIT.
These scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic excellence and research potential.
Emma will be studying how the surface properties of nanodiamonds effect their fluorescent emission for applications in neuronal (pain-related) biological research.

Congratulations to CNBP honours student Emma Wilson from our RMIT University node in Melbourne. Emma was recognised this evening with an award for her ‘Outstanding Achievements in Biotechnology’.
The Award is an industry sponsored award for academic excellence in the RMIT Biotechnology Degree, and it is awarded for best student performance overall.
Emma’s research is focused on investigating the peroxidase-like activity of Fluorescent Nanodiamond (FND) within a traditional bio-sensing assay.
Supervised by CNBP Chief Investigator Associate Professor Brant Gibson, Dr Philipp Reineck from the RMIT node of the CNBP and Professor Vipul Bansal, Group Leader of the RMIT NanoBiotechnology Research Laboratory, Emma is finding her work challenging but extremely rewarding!
“The opportunity to work under the guidance of these three scientists, each with their diverse expertise and perspectives is a great honour,” said Emma. “The award made for a fantastic evening.”
