About the Author

Elbourne, Aaron: - Dr. Aaron Elbourne is an ARC DECRA Research Fellow within the School of Science at RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. He is currently the recipient of a Jack Brockhoff Foundation Early Career Medical Research Fellowship, an ARC Discovery Project, and an ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA). He obtained his PhD in Chemistry in 2017 from The University of Newcastle, Australia under the supervision of Professor Erica J. Wanless. He began his postdoctoral fellowship in February of 2017. His research interests involve high-resolution atomic force microscopy, ion adsorption, solid-liquid interfaces, bio-interfaces, nanomaterials, liquid metals, and antimicrobial technologies.
Ramsland, Paul: - "Associate Professor Paul A. Ramsland received his PhD (1998) in Molecular Immunology from the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) supervised by Robert L. Raison. His postdoctoral studies (1998-2001) in antibody structure were with Allen B. Edmundson at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, USA. From 2001 - 2015, he worked in independent medical research institutes in Melbourne, Australia. After being awarded a 2015 Vice Chancellor's Senior Research Fellowship from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University, he relocated there in 2016. At RMIT University, the group continues to pursue collaborative projects in antibody-carbohydrate interactions, with a new focus on recognition at cell surfaces, interfaces and in biomaterials."
Gurtler, Volker: - Dr Gurtler is a Molecular biologist with extensive industry experience and expertise in DNA analysis for the identification and typing of organisms. He is known internationally as the author of the original methodology of ribotyping. He is Advisor to Geneious (Bioinformatics software company) and previous head of Molecular Biology at Austin Health Microbiology, currently Adjunct Professor at RMIT University, Editor of Journal of Microbiological Methods, Editor of Heliyon and Series Editor of Methods in Microbiology. Dr Gurtler is currently working in collaboration with Assoc. Prof Danilla Grando on ribosome analysis of E. coli isolates and association with virulence. He visits RMIT regularly to advise on experimental methods and help PhD students use Geneious Bioinformatic software.
