Providing customised service for small molecule analysis for life science researchers.
Each node of Metabolomics Australia (MA) is embedded in a leading academic or research institution and when you engage us we utilise the knowledge and resources behind these institutions when tackling your research questions.
Prof. Tony Bacic, FAA
Director, Plant Cell Biology Research Centre, School of BioSciences, University of Melbourne
Deputy Director, ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Cell Walls, University of Melbourne
Tony is the MA Platform Convenor and has led the consortium from its establishment in 2007 to being a mature platform alongside its sister platforms of genomics and proteomics. The group benefits from his vision for metabolomics and his extensive expertise in plant biochemistry.
Assoc. Prof. Ute Roessner - ARC Future Fellow
Head of Analytics, BioSciences node leader Metabolomics Australia
President, the Metabolomics Society
Ute oversees the University of Melbourne Bioscience MA facility and the development of analytical tools. She brings to the consortium her specific expertise in plant metabolomics and as President of the International Metabolomics Society and provides valuable insight into the field.
Prof. Malcolm McConville - NHMRC Principle Research Fellow
Head of Analytics, Bio21 Node Leader Metabolomics Australia.
Head of Bioinformatics, Bio21 Node Leader Metabolomics Australia.
Acting Director, Bio21 Molecular Science and Biotechnology Institute (Bio21 Institute).
Malcolm oversees the University of Melbourne Bio21 MA facility and the development of bioinformatic tools for the platform. He brings specific expertise to the platform in the metabolism and biochemistry of microbial pathogens.
Dr. Markus Herderich
Group Manager – Research
The Australian Wine Research Institute
Markus leads the South Australian node of MA at the Australian Wine Research Institute and the consortium and node benefit from his specific expertise in aroma and wine chemistry, analytical chemistry and natural product chemistry, and metabolomics.
Prof. Robert Trengove
Director Separation Science & Advanced Instrumentation
Separation Science & Metabolomics Laboratory
Robert leads the Western Australian node of MA. There are 2 nodes in the state and Rob is located at Murdoch University. The consortium and node benefit from his depth of knowledge of metabolomics across various research fields.
Asst. Prof. Michael Clarke
UWA Centre for Metabolomics
Michael is located at the University of Western Australia and leads the sites MA group. Mike has expertise in Clinical Biochemistry and method development using mass spectrometry. His main interests include Vitamin D and steroid metabolism and analysis in mammalian systems.
Prof. Lars Nielsen
Chair of Biological Engineering
Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN)
Lars leads the Queensland node of MA at the Australian Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology. He brings to the consortium a wealth of knowledge in metabolic modelling and flux analysis.
