‘Engineering TGF-beta proteins for therapeutic applications’

SoMS, BaBS, GSBmE Seminar Series

Speaker: Craig Harrison, Associate Professor - Physiology at Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute

After completing his PhD at the University of New South Wales in 1999, Dr Harrison joined Prince Henry’s Institute in Melbourne. His postdoctoral training was at the Salk Institute for Biological Sciences (La Jolla, California) in the laboratory of Professor Wylie Vale as a NHMRC CJ Martin Training Fellow. On returning to Australia, he established the Growth Factor Signalling Laboratory at Prince Henry’s Institute (later the Hudson Institute). In 2016, Dr Harrison moved his lab to the Department of Physiology, Monash University.

Dr Harrison’s research focuses on the mechanisms underlying the synthesis and activation of TGF-β proteins, and the roles these growth factors play in skeletal muscle and the female reproductive system.

Dr Harrison has been a member of the ESA Council since 2014 and treasurer since 2017.

Seminar starts at 4pm followed by drinks and nibble at 5pm
