Margie Sunde is Professor in Molecular Biomedicine at the University of Sydney. She obtained her PhD in Biochemistry at the University of Cambridge in 1994 and then did postdoctoral work at the Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics and Centre for Molecular Sciences in Oxford, where she developed her interest in amyloid fibrils. Margie’s work has contributed to the recognition that all amyloid fibrils share a common underlying beta sheet structure and that amyloid formation associated with disease involves protein misfolding. Margie’s current research focus is the structure and formation of functional amyloid structures in microorganisms, in particular amyloids with a biological role in infection or immune evasion.
