Dr Paul Savage

Partner Investigator

CSIRO Manufacturing

Dr Savage is the Research Director of the Biomedical Manufacturing Platform at CSIRO and he will apply cutting edge proteomics methodologies to characterise the structure, function, post-translational modifications and molecular interactions of therapeutic peptides, proteins and protein complexes and will focus on the development of novel, engineered therapeutic proteins, especially antibodies, for the treatment of a variety of diseases and the use of different platform technologies for scale- up production. They will also focus on the application of novel conjugation/ligation technologies for the synthesis of bespoke “designer” proteins with novel functional activities.
