Zee Upton, Professor, Queensland University, Australia

Professor Zee Upton is a biochemist, an inventor and a tissue engineer who is internationally recognised for her research in growth factors, extracellular matrix proteins and cell migration, and their relevance to tissue repair and regeneration. She is Leader of the Cells & Tissue Domain within the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation, Head of the Cell and Molecular Bioscience Discipline in the QUT Faculty of Science and Technology and Consulting Chief Scientific Officer of Tissue Therapies. Professor Upton founded Tissue Therapies, a company spun out of QUT and now listed on the Australian Stock Exchange, to commercialise a growth factor-extracellular matrix technology that she discovered and that is now being clinically trialled globally for wound healing applications. Most recently she led the successful bid to establish the $100+ million Wound Management Innovation Cooperative Research Centre in Australia. She is Leader of CRC Program 1, Enabling Technologies. She has also made several other fundamental discoveries and advances in the fields of growth factors, ECM proteins and tissue growth and repair, including the development of serum-free media for cells used in medical applications, the creation of novel chimeric proteins, the development of 3-dimensional tissue equivalent models, as well as other novel wound and scar remediation therapies and delivery technologies. These have been protected by a suite of patents.
