Congratulations to Dr Gabriella Lindberg. Her appointment to the University of Oregon Knight Campus as a lab leader includes her in an especially curated cohort of 30 top-tier researchers.

The Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact opened in December 2020 and is designed to fast track scientific discoveries. Lindberg was included in its initial recruitment efforts, and she departs Christchurch for the new campus in the USA in October.

“I’m thrilled and honoured to join the Knight Campus and open up my own laboratory. The Lindberg Lab will focus on developing robust 3D-models to study tissue repair mechanisms and disease progression”.

Lindberg is quick to thank her mentors. “Taking this next step in my career is only possible because of the amazing support and mentoring provided by my supervisors, collaborators and colleagues across the globe. A special thanks to Professors Tim Woodfield and Gary Hooper for guiding me and always encouraging me to tackle new challenges, and to my supervisor Dr Koon Lim for growing my scientific mind.”

Lindberg undertook her PhD studies in the Christchurch Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Engineering (CReaTE) research group, part of Otago’s Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Musculoskeletal Medicine.

She plans to retain her collaboration with the University of Otago as a partnership of excellence, and looks forward to forming new collaborations within the wider Cascadia community.

Lindberg is currently on the look-out for a range of talented students and postdocs who share her passion for biofabrication, biomaterials and organoids.
