Research Assistant with Jacqui – continuing the family tradition of working in the lab here after her partner Cuong completed his PhD with Joel a few years ago.
Current Lab members
Honorary Associate with a ton of experience (at CSIRO) in insect transcription factor structure and function – hoping to do some fundamental biochemistry and drug discovery.
Sabbatical visitor from Ferdowsi University of Mashhad in Iran – here to learn some protein structure and design in Joel’s lab.
Our lab manager (the person who *really* runs the lab). Watch out if you aren’t wearing your lab coat!
Postdoc in the Mackay lab – frequently consulted as the oracle of cloning, not to mention mass spectrometry… Some would say he runs the joint…
After BSc Hons with Joel, a PhD with Margie and a school teaching sabbatical in Japan, Ingrid is back (and with more diverse hair colours than before) to become the lab CRISPR guru.
Research assistant working on the design of new insecticides that are safer and more selective. A new chapter in her life in the lab here!
PhD student with Jacqui. Tried to escape but is stuck with us for the time being!
Membrane protein crystallography afionado working with Joel on a collaboration with Prof Michael Kassiou to design new modulators of P2X proteins.
Just-finished PhD student working jointly with Richard Payne in Chemistry and Joel. Skillfully walked the line between being a chemist and a biochemist!
PhD student with Joel working on the structure and function of bromodomains. Bravely ventured across the Tasman for her PhD, doubling the number of people in the lab who know what jandals are.
PhD student with Joel following on from TSP project. Wants to rebuild protein NMR data analysis from the bottom up – and fly planes.
PhD student with Joel who has made the jump from membrane proteins to transcription factors (and their PTMs) – very sensible!
Previously known as “BSc Hons student working with Joel and Jason” – now promoted to PhD student and being inducted into the arcane world of RaPID screening by Toby!
Intern/Hons student/RA/web designer/Taylor’s other half. Truly a man for all seasons.
Research assistant working with Joel on a collaborative project with Alyson Ashe – on transgenerational epigenetic inheritance. Enjoyed her BSc Hons year with Joel and Ana and her undergrad project before that so much we couldn’t keep her away.
Undergraduate student with an interest in protein design and engineering – working with Jason on the new and exciting monobody project…
Hons student working in Joel’s lab on transcription factor PTMs – ably supervised by Ingrid and Kim.
Intrepid MSc student working with Yu Heng Lau in Chemistry on the very cool encapsulin family of proteins and spending some time in Joel’s lab to flex her protein biochemistry muscles.
BSC Hons student working with Joel, Ron and Emily Remnant – a crossover project where we merge our interest in transcription factors with Ron’s expertise in insecticide development and Emily’s deep knowledge of honeybees!
BSc Hons student working with Joel and Toby – will be flexing her mRNA display muscles this year trying to isolate bromodomain inhibitors.
