Investigators

AID researchers are drawn from infectious disease experts from across QIMR and UQ who apply leading technologies to identify, understand and prevent infectious disease.

Professor Alan E. Mark (UQ VC SRF)

Professor Alan Mark uses computer based simulation techniques to understand and predict the structural and dynamic properties of (bio)molecules including proteins and lipid aggregates.

His interests lie in understanding cellular processes, such as the self-assembly of functional complexes such as those involved in viral invasion or antimicrobial resistance at an atomic level.

As part of the AID his group focuses on the mechanism of action of antimicrobial peptides and the role of membranes in the development of resistance to bactericides and sterilization procedures.
