I am a senior research fellow studying marine organism responses to environmental change based at James Cook University in ARC Center of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies. I undertook my PhD at the University of Queensland where my thesis investigated links between stress and disease in reef building corals. My research encompasses coral biology, microbial ecology, molecular biology, and I utilize a whole organism/ whole system approach to understanding change in marine systems.

Researching the assembly of cell surface appendages in archaea and their role in adhesion and biofilm formation. The model organism we study is the hyperthermophilic archaeon Sulfolobus acidocaldarius. We use genetic approaches to identify systems in Sulfolobus that are involved in the assembly of cell surface appendages and biochemically characterize the subunits and their interplay in the assembly process.
Dr. Nitin Amdare is a Staff Scientist in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. His primary research interest is to contribute significantly to identifying and characterizing the specific human auto-antigen peptides of potential clinical relevance recognized by HLA-restricted islet-infiltrating CD8 T cells, which could facilitate the development of antigen-specific strategies that identify those most likely to be therapeutic targets and markers of pathogenic autoimmunity.
My laboratory is centered on understanding the function(s) of RNAs, especially non-coding RNAs in all aspects of Biology. The long term objective of our work is to understand meiotic silencing in Neurospora and to map its connections with the meiotic silencing observed in other organisms.

Jürg Bähler is a Professor of Systems Biology at University College London. His laboratory studies genome regulation during cellular proliferation, quiescence, and ageing using fission yeast (Schizosaccharomyces pombe) as a model system. They apply multiple genetic, computational and genome-wide approaches for systems-level understanding of regulatory processes and complex relationships between genotype, phenotype, and environment, including roles of genome variation and evolution, transcriptome regulation, and non-coding RNAs.
Jürg Bähler is an elected Member of the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO) and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Biology, and he received a Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator Award and a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award.
