A/Prof Sheena McGowan
Dr McGowan’s expertise and research is focused on characterising the structure and function of novel drug targets, as well as the structure-activity relationships of inhibitors for the development of novel treatments for infectious diseases. Through her work on the Lorne Conference on Protein Structure & Function (currently treasurer) as well as on national and international councils (including the Australian Society for Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, International Proteolysis Society, and Asian Crystallographic Society), Dr McGowan has developed strong links with both the domestic and international protease and structural biology communities. AI McGowan will contribute to CIPPS science through existing and emerging collaborations with CIs and AIs. She will act as a liaison between CIPPS and the domestic and international structural biology community.
