Research groupsOur Partner Laboratory Network

Apaja Group

South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute

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

Biro Group

University of New South Wales

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.

Boyle Group

QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute

The Boyle Group's goal is to inform the development of effective malaria vaccines by defining functional mechanisms of antibodies that target the parasite, and the development of protective antibodies in humans.

Cryle Group

Monash University

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

Davidovich Group

Monash University

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

Gambin Group

University of New South Wales

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

Janovjak Group

Monash University

The Janovjak group manipulates mammalian physiology with synthetic biology, with a focus on identifying new approaches for tissue regeneration in degenerative disorders.​

Lynn Group

South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute

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

Mäkinen Group

South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute

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.

Martino Group

Monash University

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.

McGlinn Group

Monash University

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

Thompson Group

Australian National University

The Thompson group aims to understand the control of tissue growth and form, with a focus on exploring how cells construct epithelial tissues during development and how epithelial tumours can arise.

Weatheritt Group

The Garvan Institute of Medical Research

The Weatheritt group aims to uncover the root causes of neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder, using computational and system biology approaches and to develop novel therapeutic interventions.
