Our Team

Centre Leadership

Centre Director
Monash University

NHMRC Senior Principal Research Fellow and leader in the study of GPCRs, biased agonism, on allosteric interactions between GPCRs and other proteins, and small molecule ligands. His team is at the forefront of the application of cryo-EM to elucidation of the structure and dynamics of GPCRs.

Isabelle has 20 year experience in cryo-EM. Her focus is on the application of cryo-EM to solve the structure of membrane proteins including viral glycoproteins, bacterial transporters, pore-forming toxins and ion channels. Her work provides fundamental knowledge to facilitate structure-based drug design and vaccines development.

Centre Manager
Monash University

Responsible for operational matters in the Centre.

Node Leadership

Node Leader
The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute

Head of the Chemical Biology Division at WEHI and a leading structural biologist working at the cutting edge of drug target discovery and expert in the structure and regulation of key protein kinases that play critical roles in human diseases .

Node Leader
Monash University

Associate Professor and NHMRC Senior Research Fellow in Drug Discovery and Biology with expertise in the study of G-protein coupled receptors. One of her principal focus area includes specific receptors that are important clinical targets for metabolic diseases.

Node Leader
University of Wollongong

Distinguished Professor and Australian Research Council Laureate Fellow. His research revolves around the development and use of single-molecule biophysical tools to study complex biological systems.

Chief Investigators

University of Wollongong

Distinguished Professor and internationally recognised as a leader in membrane physiology and neuroscience research, specifically the study of membrane receptor and ion channel function using molecular biological and electrophysiological recording techniques.

The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute

Joint Division Head of Structural Biology. His group use protein crystallography to provide insights into the proteins that regulate programmed cell death and drug development to target these proteins in diseased cells.

The University of Melbourne

NHMRC Senior Principal Research Fellow and Director of the Bio21 Institute. Michael’s focus is on determining the molecular structures of membrane proteins including cytokine receptors, microglial receptors and pore-forming toxins. This fundamental knowledge is being used as a basis for structure-based drug design of new therapies to treat cancers, infection and neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease in partnership with industry.

Monash University

Associate Director of Monash eResearch Centre with expertise in the use of the specialist Australian high-performance computing facility for imaging and visualizing everything from biological molecules to new materials and whole human bodies.
Associate Professor leading a laboratory in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Bio21. His laboratory is focussed on understanding the assembly and function of large, multimeric cytokine signalling complexes at the cell surface. He was awarded an ARC Australian Postdoctoral Fellowship (2011), the C.R. Roper Fellowship (2013) and ARC Future Fellowship (2015).
