Research School of Biology
We use powerful biological resources provided by C. elegans to study aspects of nematode biochemistry, molecular biology and behaviour, and control methods.
The Brock group uses X-ray crystallography and Cryo-Electron Microscopy to visualise membrane proteins in near atomic detail and investigate their function.
Our research focuses on understanding the contributions of membrane transport processes to disease and overcoming their impact in treating disease.
We study membrane transport mechanisms in malaria and toxoplasma parasites. The proteins involved offer significant potential as antiparasitic drug targets.
We study membrane transport processes in the Plasmodium parasites that cause malaria.
The Maier Group focuses on the identification of molecules involved in malaria pathogenesis and transmission.
We are interested in the molecular mechanisms controlling nodule development in legumes, and how this is linked to other aspects of root architecture.
The Saliba Group is investigating vitamin utilisation pathways in the red blood cell stage of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum.
We study the basic biology of parasites, with the hope that such knowledge can be used in developing new treatment options against these formidable foes.
John Curtin School of Medical Research
The focus of our research is understanding how to generate effective immunity against the malaria parasite Plasmodium.
My lab studies how platelets recognise and kill these parasites, We have discovered that platelets kill the parasite by binding to the infected cell and releasing a toxic protein called PF4.
Centre for Advanced Microscopy (CAM)
The lab’s research revolves mainly around questions in malaria host/pathogen relationships.
