Harald Kneipp received his Diplom in Physics from Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, and a Ph.D. degree in Physics from the Academy of Sciences in Berlin. He conducted research in the fields of plasma physics, nonlinear optics, and laser physics and development. His current interests include
applications of lasers and optical spectroscopy at the frontiers of science and medicine.
After graduating with a BSc (Hons) from University College Dublin (NUI) Edeline Wentrup-Byrne obtained her PhD in organic chemistry from the University of Lausanne in Switzerland. Her research interests include the use of vibrational spectroscopy to study naturally occurring biomaterials, the
surface-modification of fluorinated bone-repair materials (ePTFE) and the development of degradable polymeric scaffolds for use in bone repair applications. In addition, she is working with a multi-disciplinary team and a Brisbane-based industry Tissue Therapies to develop a novel skin
wound-healingbandage therapy. Currently she is a member of the Tissue Repair and Regeneration Program in the QUT Institute for Health and Biomedical Innovation.
