Research Groups

EMBL Australia Partner Laboratory Groups

NSW Node - Biro Group

The Biro group are primarily concerned with the cell biology and mechanics of the actin cytoskeleton, and how immune cells (T cells) locate and kill cancer cells.

NSW Node - Gambin Group

The Gambin group are interested in how certain proteins aggregate together, leading to cell death and Parkinson’s disease. 

NSW Node - Weatheritt Group

The Weatheritt group aims to understand how post-transcriptional regulation contributes to proteomic diversity and cell signalling.

SA Node - Apaja Group

The Apaja group are investigating the mechanisms that regulates protein trafficking and organelle function and their role in cellular homeostasis,  and  are unravelling how the endo-lysosomal network dysfunction leads to disease conditions such as neurological disorders and cancers.

SA Node - Lynn Group

The Group’s primary research interest is investigating the regulation of the innate immune system from a genome-wide or systems level perspective.

SA Node - Mäkinen Group

The Mäkinen Group are focused on determining the molecular patterns of gene and protein expression that cause chronic and age-related conditions such as obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

VIC Node - Cryle Group

The Cryle groups focuses on antibiotics: understanding how these compounds are made in nature, how we can reengineer these natural systems to produce new antibiotics as well as developing novel approaches to treat bacterial infections.

VIC Node - Davidovich Group

The Davidovich Group aim to understand the detailed molecular events that underlie the recruitment and regulation of chromatin-modifying complexes by their co-factor proteins, RNAs and DNA.

VIC Node - Martino Group

The Martino group is focused on combining knowledge of immunology, stem cells, and bioengineering, to understand how the immune system modulates tissue repair and regeneration.

VIC Node - McGlinn Group

The McGlinn Group is focused on elucidating novel gene networks that drive growth and identity in the early embryo.
