Neil Richardson has a broad background and expertise in cell biology, human anatomy and animal nutrition. His research over the last two decades has included;
Investigating the roles of insulin-like growth factors in vertebrate development,
Developing improved aquaculture feeds for commercially important fish and crustacean species, and
Exploring the potential of novel biomaterials and cell therapies to facilitate ocular tissue repair.
As a direct result of his efforts in the above research fields, Neil has been recruited to the position of co-investigator on several research grants funded by QUT and external organisations (e.g. Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research, Ophthalmic Research Institute of Australia). In these roles, he has successfully contributed to the administration of the projects (e.g. staffing, research protections, budget), collaborated with other researchers, and produced multiple peer-reviewed publications.
